Here’s what we’re working on and thinking about at Enphase.

LAS VEGAS--The scene at the Enphase booth at SPI 2016 can be described in two words: really busy. The launch of the IQ Series microinverters and demo of the Enphase AC Battery are attracting attendees like bees to honey. But it’s not the only place at the largest solar event in the U.S. where Enphase is having an impact. Three of our experts participated on panels during the first day of the show, providing prime examples of Enphase’s greatest strength: its people.

LAS VEGAS--When you visit the Enphase team at our Solar Power International booth, the buzz will be coming not only from the steady parade of training sessions, informational presentations and product demos, but also from something six generations in the making: the fully integrated Enphase Home Energy Solution with IQ. The solution, which integrates solar, storage and energy management, officially debuts at SPI, and features the Enphase IQ 6 and IQ 6+ Micros.

Solar Power International (SPI) is ONE WEEK away and Enphase will have a huge presence at the show, with a booth displaying our new sixth generation microinverters, AC Batteries and AC modules. SPI attendees will also benefit from valuable, hands-on trainings for solar installers on the new Enphase products and ways to help maximize installation efficiencies and increase revenue. These trainings will run from 10:15am – 4:15pm every day of the show, with a new training every 30 minutes – no shortage of things to learn about Enphase!

The solar energy industry is at a turning point. When the team at Enphase Energy started looking at the last decade of innovation both within the company and in the industry as a whole, we noticed some larger trends that are reshaping the industry. Our conclusion: the next ten years will be radically different from the last ten years.

Ten years from now, what will it mean to think about energy? Will we be thinking about providing access to energy to the billions of people who have limited or no access to electricity? Will we be working on reducing the energy burden for people who live in energy inefficient homes and are paying up to a third or more of their take-home pay on energy costs?

Solar has come a long way, and while still in its infancy, it’s growing up in a way scarcely imagined a decade ago. This year marks an inflection point, where solar will start being seen as part of a larger story of energy experiences. The integration of solar plus storage, smart home devices, energy management systems, and the smart grid will change the way energy is used in the future in ways that will be barely recognizable to us today.

With recent news about the potential Tesla Motors takeover of SolarCity, there’s been a lot of discussion about whether they’ll design and manufacture inverters as part of the vertical integration strategy. Business strategy aside, it’s raised a number of questions about how similar or different inverters for solar plus storage are compared to inverters for electric vehicles.

Solar is seizing its chance to break into schools through state-of-the-art classroom designs, which are built from the ground up to solve issues that have plagued schools for decades. American Modular Systems (AMS) is a manufacturer focused on bringing the construction of classrooms into the 21st century, and is leading the charge to eliminate not only common structural defects such as imperfect lighting, poor acoustics, but also maintenance issues that can lead to air quality-related health issues such as asthma. All those problems result in lost learning opportunities for children.
