Reinvigorating its long-standing commitment to China, Vestas announced today a new strategy to secure profitable growth in the world's largest wind energy market. The Chinese wind market is making a fundamental shift away from prioritising low upfront capital costs toward a focus on life-time cost of energy considerations. Coupled with an additional shift toward low-wind sites, Vestas is well-positioned to succeed. Speaking in Beijing, Vestas CEO Anders Runevad says,“These changes in the China market play to Vestas' core strengths in technology leadership and service innovation. They create new opportunities for Vestas to lower the cost of energy and increase business case [...]

Building upon Enecsys's ability to reliably scale power and reduce package size through its patented technology, the 250NL is 42% lighter and 48% less volume compared to the second generation product, supporting most 60 cell modules up to 300W standard test conditions (STC). Greater power density translates to industry leading lower handling costs to module manufacturers and installers. “The design is actually smaller than some residential home routers,” says Mike Fister, CEO. “It is an extension of the micro inverter product continuum, further enabling a higher level of module integration.” Enecsys micro inverters are designed and tested for high reliability, matching PV [...]
