Watch last year's Award Ceremony:

BESS: Jua, Barrel

A modular storage solution that enables various new business modules, the Jua Barrel also impressed with its focus on recyclable materials and potential for optimized shipping.

BOS: 5B, Maverick

Australia’s 5B impressed with its prefabricated “solar block,” bringing the potential to shakeup increasingly tracker-focused large-scale solar PV markets.

INVERTERS: SolarEdge Technologies, Energy Hub Inverter

Our jurors judged SolarEdge worthy of recognition for its efforts in pushing the smart-home concept further with its “prism” technology

MATERIALS: Jolywood, n-type TOPCon cell

As an early mover taking TOPCon technology to gigawatt scale, Jolywood is recognized for its exciting claims around cell performance in mass production.

MODULES: JinkoSolar, Tiger Module Series

Jinko’s tiling ribbon technology puts it ahead of the pack in a year dominated by high-density, large-format modules.

SUSTAINABILITY: Energetica Industries GmbH

With a “sustainability first” approach to module manufacturing, Austria’s Energetica is setting an example for the whole industry.


In 10 years, inverter manufacturer Growatt has rapidly developed into an international player, and its new GroHome series promises higher self-consumption and more optimizations for residential PV system owners.
