Inverters

GoodWe is the biggest rooftop solar inverter supplier in India

The Chinese manufacturer commanded a 17% share of the total 3268 MW of rooftop PV inverter shipments in India in the January-December 2020 period.

New power electronic device to manage surplus solar power

The device was developed by an international consortium through the EU-funded project Renewable penetration levered by Efficient Low Voltage Distribution grids (RESOLVD). The power electronic technology is claimed to be able to combine different storage technologies in a single electronic-based board interface.

Union budget: Customs duty rise for solar inverters but modules spared

Imported solar inverters and lanterns will get costlier, as the union budget for the next fiscal year has proposed customs duty increases from 5%, for both items, to 20% and 15%, respectively. The budget, which also incentivizes Indian manufacturing of solar project components whilst giving a helping hand to raw materials, makes no mention of solar cells or panels.
