Chinese inverter manufacturer Sungrow has maintained its position of influence in its domestic market by leading the development of the nation’s new standards for grid-connected inverters.

The Hefei-based manufacturer, which market research company IHS says was the world’s third largest inverter maker by MW shipped in 2012, has been involved in setting Chinese inverter standards since 2005 and yesterday revealed its leading role in the country’s latest set of requirements.
