WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwire) -- 10/02/12 -- Enecsys Limited, a premier supplier of micro inverter products for the global solar market, announced today that it has been recognized as one of the top 100 private cleantech companies by the Global Cleantech Group, a leading global research and advisory firm focused on innovation in energy and the environment. This marks the company's third successive year on the Global Cleantech 100 List.
"The Global Cleantech 100 is a natural extension of our companywide mission to help corporations, investors and financiers, professional service firms and governmental agencies connect with global cleantech innovation," said Sheeraz Haji, chief executive officer at the Cleantech Group. "This report celebrates the best in innovation and is the industry standard on gauging where cleantech innovation is headed next."
This year, 8,285 companies spanning 85 countries were nominated for the Global Cleantech 100 List. Each company was weighted and scored using the Global Cleantech Group's set of proprietary metrics, as well as input from a panel of 75 cleantech experts worldwide. As a result, 100 privately owned cleantech companies across 13 countries were selected as being best positioned to create significant market impact over the next 5-10 years.
"It is an honor to receive this recognition from the Global Cleantech Group, particularly among this dynamic group of pioneers who share our vision of creating products that broadly promote a cleaner approach to how we leverage technology around the world," said Mike Fister, chief executive officer at Enecsys. "Since its founding in 2003, Enecsys has designed, manufactured and sold micro inverter systems that not only optimize the performance of solar installations, but do so over the entire lifetime of the solar PV system. We will continue to do what we do best and uphold the company's vision of making solar more accessible and affordable worldwide."
The Enecsys Micro Inverter System is designed to make incorporating solar into any home simpler for both installers and homeowners, while offering significant energy harvest advantages, particularly in shaded conditions. Enecsys offers two types of micro inverters -- the Enecsys Single and Duo Micro Inverter. Unlike string or central inverters, the Enecsys Single Micro Inverter is installed on the rack behind each solar module and converts direct current (DC) into alternating current (AC) immediately at the solar module. The Enecsys Duo Micro Inverter accepts DC input from two individual solar modules and enables system owners to harvest the maximum amount of energy with half the number of inverters. By offering both types of micro inverters, as well as a flexible cabling system, Enecsys provides installers with a choice in how best to design and implement complicated rooftop installations much more quickly and easily, regardless of shading, obstruction or size.
Additionally, the Enecsys Monitoring System and Enecsys Gateway allow homeowners and installers to view real-time and historical data regarding the performance of each module, or set of modules in the case of the Enecsys Duo Micro Inverter. The monitoring system promptly detects performance issues and provides installers and homeowners with precise guidance for required maintenance, while optimizing the solar system's performance over the lifetime of the installation.
David White, chief financial officer at Enecsys, will be speaking at the Global Cleantech 100 Summit on October 2, 2012 at 2:30 p.m. EDT. David will be part of the panel entitled "Insights from the Innovators: Approaches to Global Distribution," which will discuss how global cleantech companies are expanding into emerging international markets.
