02.10.2013 l Press Release

Femtogrid is part of the first official project of the Solar Energy Application Centre (SEAC): the Module Level Power Management (MLPM) project. MLPM implies power management per module, which means the optimization of each individual module within a solar installation for maximum solar energy. This is exactly what Femtogrid stands for and is making possible with its current products.

SEAC was created in 2012 as a cooperation between ECN, TNO and Holland Solar. Its mission is to stimulate both R&D as well as the economical activities in the Netherlands and its neighboring regions in the field of innovative solar energy systems and applications. The MLPM-SEAC project was started on 17 July 2012 and the field test was officially opened on 26 September 2013.

The MLPM-SEA project compares 3 different Dutch solutions in terms of energy production, whereby production data is collected for over a year and including all seasonal influences. Femtogrid’s Power Optimizer solution is being compared with Mastervolt’s traditional string solution and the micro inverter solution from Heliox to conclude with system architecture generates the most solar energy.

This project is being part of the Topsector Energy program. Within Topsector Energy partners have bundled their forces to build the Topconsortia for Knowledge and Innovation (TKI). Policy information about the TKI can be found on the website of the Rijksoverheid.

We are proud to be part of the prestigious MLPM-SEAC project and are looking forward to the results. Watch the movie about the TKI to learn more about the TKI, Topsector Energy, SEAC, and Femtogrid.
