Sungrow, a global provider of inverter solutions for renewable energy, recently announced that its cumulative shipments in America had reached a significant milestone of 10 GW by the end of 2020, underscoring its position in the deep decarbonization of the local economy and its role as a large corporation Pioneer for renewable energies in the entire region.
A significant process in a challenging year
With a continued uptrend in markets such as the US, Brazil, Chile, Argentina and Mexico, Sungrow has extended partnerships with a variety of EPCs, distributors and integrators.
“We deployed 5 GW PV inverter solutions in North America in 2020,” said Hank Wang, President of Sungrow Americas. Wang commented that the company has reached the 1 GW milestone in the LATAM hub in Chile and has consolidated its key role in Brazil with groundbreaking successes in both the utility market and decentralized generation segments.
The celebrated projects in 2020 include the 200 MW Wright Solar project and a 400 MW project in Brazil that is slated to go online in the second half of 2021 with the 3.125 MW Sungrow central inverter solution installed.
In particular, Sungrow is the only inverter supplier that has been classified by BNEF as “100% bankable” for two years. The company has a solid track record of projects it drives forward.
Huge advances in innovation
The performance is proof of the success of innovations. Sungrow has a massive R&D task force to push the boundaries of innovation and create the most intuitive and pragmatic products in the entire industry.
As the feed-in tariffs (FiT) are lowered, the falling PPA price is ready to demand lower system costs. One of the latest Sungrow products to be launched this year is a 3.6 MW outdoor inverter solution that meets local needs well as it not only allows for a minimized LCOE, but is also flexible Solar-Plus storage systems can be added as these are prefabricated inputs for DC-coupled storage solutions.
Make 2021 a breakthrough
The global environmental projection addresses short-term uncertainties that will require more effort and supportive policies to accelerate the pace of global recovery. However, the deep decarbonization of the power generation industry is in full swing.
Sungrow continues to capitalize on the growth potential of the global market in support of low carbon lifestyle and clean energy action plan in various countries. “Success depends on sustainability. Sungrow has enormous potential to unlock future innovations,” commented Hank Wang.
The company said it was ready to meet the booming demands to offer the best practices to ensure the benefits for the stakeholders. This is backed by continuous innovation and trustworthy delivery capabilities, as well as a larger team across America that is an industry leading service responsive. It also shows robust momentum on the way to more solar plus storage applications.
