Enphase Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENPH) will participate in Energie 2013, the largest trade show on saving energy and the transition to sustainable energy sources in The Netherlands, on Sept. 24-26 at Brabanthallen, Diezekade 2, Den Bosch. Visitors can discover the benefits of the Enphase System by attending live training sessions at Enphase partner booths and participating in informational Enphase presentations.

Enphase has been active in The Netherlands since the first Enphase photovoltaic array was installed in 2012. To date, all the Enphase systems in The Netherlands have produced more than 2,500 MWh of clean energy, equivalent to offsetting over 1,700 tons of CO2. Enphase entered The Netherlands as the photovoltaic market was developing rapidly, and the installed capacity of solar continues to grow steadily today. As reported by the Dutch solar association Holland Solar (September 2013), in 2011, total PV installations reached 145MW, while in 2012 they grew up to 340MW.
“We are delighted about the fast adoption of our solution in The Netherlands, where we have installed over 1,500 systems since last year. This demonstrates the value we deliver as the leading provider of microinverter systems globally. Our solution is well-suited for Dutch photovoltaic rooftop applications, where solar subsidies are modest, making optimal energy production even more important when choosing system technologies,” said Olivier Jacques, managing director for Enphase Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
The Enphase System offers a new approach to the installation, operations and maintenance of solar energy systems. Enphase Microinverters, the Envoy Communications Gateway and Enlighten web-based software platform work together to deliver increased energy harvest and unparalleled solar system intelligence. By converting direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC) at the panel level, microinverters create independent power producers out of every single panel in a solar array. This dramatically simplifies solar system design and installation while improving safety by eliminating high voltage DC. Access to the Enlighten software comes included with the Envoy Communications Gateway, which communicates with each microinverter over the existing power lines. Enlighten allows remote access to system information from any web-enabled device, providing installers with increased visibility into the performance of their installed-base and remote troubleshooting capabilities.
