Smart Technology - New diversification opportunitiesThe growth of the smart home technology market may provide an opportunity for Module Level Power Electronic (MLPE) suppliers to enter new markets and extend their partnership networks, according to the IHS Technology report. "Policies and standards will be a significant driver of MLPE adoption and associated module integrated solutions over the next five years, particularly in the United States," said Camron Barati, solar analyst at IHS Technology. "The 2017 update to the United States National Electric Code will standardize safety requirement applications in state markets. This will ultimately incentivize the use of microinverters and power optimizers for rooftop applications. Technology giants such as Apple, Google, Amazon, Huawei, AT&T and Comcast also provide solutions for the smart home market and, therefore, opportunities for MLPE suppliers to engage with wider audiences."
