NEW YORK, NY — SolarEdge Technologies, Inc. (“SolarEdge”) (NASDAQ: SEDG), a global leader in smart energy, was voted the Gold Winner for its HD-Wave inverter technology in the Renewable Energy Category by the Edison Awards™, one of the premier awards program in the United States recognizing innovation. SolarEdge joined some of the world’s most recognized companies for the awards ceremony celebrating 31 years of honoring innovators and innovations.
Applying a novel approach to inverter design, SolarEdge’s HD-Wave technology represents a significant leap in the evolution of solar inverters. This technology dramatically reduces the size and weight of the inverter's magnetics by means of advanced digital processing. The new technology also increases reliability and optimizes the performance of solar energy systems to reach record-breaking inverter efficiency of 99%. This advancement enables more solar power to be produced at lower costs.
“Our judges recognized SolarEdge as a true innovator out of the many products in its category,” said Frank Bonafilia, Executive Director of the Edison Awards.
“SolarEdge’s inverter with HD-Wave technology has already been recognized by the PV industry with awards for its innovation and potential to accelerate the proliferation of solar energy,” stated Guy Sella, CEO of SolarEdge, Founder. “It is an honor to be selected and to be a beneficiary of an Edison Award, which recognizes companies from all industries for their innovation and business.”
