In the recent years, there has been a paradigm shift toward string inverters in the 1,500 V utility solar PV plants for better efficiency, low maintenance, and easy handling compared to central inverters. Rising deployment of renewable energy sources for electricity generation globally is expected to boost the sales of these components.

Introduction of advanced & reliable products

The < 1500 V utility scale PV inverter market is likely to gain 3% through 2028. End users, policymakers, and private investors have embraced new solutions for below 1500 V applications as reliable and sustainable solution for electricity access. These systems offer low maintenance and management costs, which is anticipated to fuel the market demand. Growing awareness towards the use of low carbon-intensive products to alleviate GHG emissions will foster the industry landscape.

Various government subsidies in countries including India, China, and ASEAN to encourage the use of solar in line with the reduction in taxes. For example, Clime Capital Management, which is the Southeast Asia Clean Energy Facility (SEACEF) has invested in the progression of Vietnamese 500 MWp floating solar project combined with up to 200 MWh battery storage system. Furthermore, Southeast Asia has showcased a massive growth in the recent years led by higher solar potential in the region, which is around 41 TWh.
