At no. 11, is Italy based Fimer.

Sungrow launched the SG350HX string inverter, 1+X modular inverter, Liquid-Cooled Energy Storage System, and its newest inverter series for the commercial, industrial, and residential markets despite the supply chain instability of Covid-19 and 2021.

A supply agreement for a 320 MW solar project in Denmark has already been inked by Sungrow, who just made its inverter portfolio available to the Nordic nations.

In the meanwhile, it joined The Climate Group’s global RE100 and EP100 initiatives, which Sungrow claimed strengthened its “commitment to use 100 percent renewable energy across the whole value chain and improve energy productivity by 35 percent by 2028.”

Sungrow has already got contracts to supply its most recent SG350HX string inverter for a 45.75 MW PV project in Saudi Arabia. Along with this, they are ready to launch its new “1+X” central modular inverter, which can be connected to energy storage systems. This year alone has seen Sungrow sign a 2 GW distribution agreement with Australian distributor Solar Juice.

Sungrow was founded in 1997 by University Professor Renxian Cao, has focused heavily in  research and development in solar inverters, with numerous patents and a broad product portfolio offering PV inverter systems as well as energy storage systems for utility-scale, commercial, and residential applications.  The firm has a presence across over 50 countries, with a top 3 rank in key markets.
