Is Europe ready for micro-inverters?

Why Europe is ready for micro-inverters

Are we Europeans missing out when it comes to PV systems?

In Ger¬≠many and Europe, string invert¬≠ers are still installed in most res¬≠i¬≠den¬≠tial rooftop sys¬≠tems. How¬≠ev¬≠er, there are more mod¬≠ern solu¬≠tions that enable high¬≠er ener¬≠gy yields while elim¬≠i¬≠nat¬≠ing the dan¬≠gers of a con¬≠ven¬≠tion¬≠al PV sys¬≠tem: micro-invert¬≠ers. In the USA, these have long been the stan¬≠dard due to stricter secu¬≠ri¬≠ty require¬≠ments. The cur¬≠rent issue of PES Solar/PV dis¬≠cuss¬≠es the advan¬≠tages of micro-invert¬≠ers com¬≠pared to string invert¬≠ers and explains in sim¬≠ple terms why a par¬≠a¬≠digm shift is long over¬≠due in Europe.
