Inverters: Exploring solutions for European C&I projects

Forecasted annual installation figures for newbuild PV projects in Europe are strong, with some analysts predicting capacity will more than double by 2030. New additions will include a raft of commercial and industrial (C&I) projects, which means maximizing the return on investment will be a priority. In this pv magazine Webinar, we will discuss inverters in a C&I context as the company embarks on its own European expansion.

Getting the right inverter for the job can have a significant impact on the success of a C&I project, but in a competitive marketplace there are many options to choose from. Already established in the Asian and South American markets, inverter manufacturer Hopewind is embarking on a European expansion and the company is ready to set out its stall for the region’s C&I project developers.

Join us as we take a deep dive into C&I inverters. In this webinar, we’ll hear how Hopewind’s approach to R&D has impacted on efficiency and reliability, explore some of the crucial factors influencing inverter performance, and discuss the benefits of comprehensive warranty policies. There will also be an opportunity to submit questions for Hopewind’s industry experts, offering attendees the chance to gain insights relevant to their projects.

We’ll hear from Hakki Baris Karaca, Head of Europe at Hopewind. He’ll share his perspective on the European market and explain how Hopewind inverters address some of the most common challenges found across C&I projects. Simon Williams, European Service Director at Hopewind will also join to explain the impact of after-sales support and highlight some real-world examples of Hopewind inverters in action.
