Solarexpo 2012 was held in Verona, Italy, last week, and the Enphase team was there to spread the word about the Enphase Microinverter System to the world’s second largest solar market. The growing Enphase Italy team welcomed visitors to the booth, who came to learn about microinverters and enjoy refreshments such as fresh espresso, parmesan cheese and prosciutto. Over the three days of the show, visitor numbers reached over 70,000, making Solarexpo one of the top three solar events in the world. This year’s Solarexpo boasted over 1,200 exhibitors from 40 countries, but this didn’t stop Enphase fans from making their way to the booth for a touch of the Enphase experience.
SolarExpo is not only a solar event but also a greenbuilding and sustainability exposition. Electric vehicles and all other manner of sustainable offerings were on display on over 100,000 sq meters (~328,000 sq feet) of expo area spread across 11 halls (plus an outdoor exhibition area). Beyond the standard Smart cars and Teslas, some interesting-looking PV-powered vehicles could also be seen.
And finally, the Enphase team was amused to see some unique visitors at a neighboring booth who also spend a lot of their time on the rooftops of Italy. Wonder what they think of Italy’s PV revolution?
