Sungrow Prepares to Further Drive Energy Transition in the Andean Region

BOGOTA, Colombia, Nov. 10, 2023 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — On October 24 and 25, 2023, the Latam Future Energy Andean Renewable Summit took place in Bogota, Colombia. Sungrow, the global leading PV inverter and energy storage system supplier was key member of the summit, the Company shared insights in both solar and storage markets in varied applications, which is expected to fuel the energy transition.


Sungrow’s business strategy in the markets of the Andean region is optimistic. According to Héctor Nuñez, Sungrow North LATAM Head of Sales, the markets are focused on the deployment of more solar energy, although some stand out for their stability and growth potential.

Chile is presented as a solid market, among the company’s target markets. Landmark projects Sungrow supplied include the 181.25 MW Coya PV project and the 638 MWh Coya BESS project. However, Sungrow’s approach is not limited to just stable markets.

“Colombia has shown interesting dynamism in recent years where Sungrow is one of the market’s pioneers. Additionally, the company is moving into growing markets, such as countries in Central America and the Caribbean, and supplies landmark projects in each market,” Luis Miguel González Castillo, Sungrow Key Account Manager for Colombia and Central America, who spoke at the summit.

The attributes of the Company allow it to have greater ambitions. When it comes to the core of its success, Oliver Quintero, Key Account Manager at Sungrow said: “Technical innovations are the core of our long-term development.”

Sungrow’s 1+X Modular Inverter for the utility-scale market is a flagship product among its numerous innovations. This product combines the advantages of both central and string inverters, featuring a 1.1 MW single unit at the minimum, and the maximum capacity can be expanded to 8.8 MW by combining eight units; thus, creating a more flexible design for different blocks sizes and allowing for easier on-site operation and maintenance.

Sungrow’s commitment to innovation doesn’t stop with inverters. The company is also focused on improving its energy storage offering. With an emphasis on storage density, cost reduction, and premium safety, Sungrow offers liquid cooled energy storage systems, the PowerStack and the PowerTitan, which are tailored to commercial & industrial and utility-scale energy storage markets respectively.

WRB Energy: What Will It Take to Develop More Renewable Energy in the Caribbean?

TAMPA, Florida, March 12, 2019 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ – With the abundance of clean energy resources in the Caribbean—sun, wind, water, and geothermal—it’s a natural environment for more renewable energy generation.  So why isn’t there more renewable energy produced in the Caribbean, and why aren’t there more projects in the pipeline?

With more than three decades of experience developing renewable energy projects and operating utilities, WRB Energy can address some of the challenges that hinder increased renewable energy generation in the Caribbean.

Contain costs

Most small Caribbean island nations lack economies of scale to absorb the high costs and complexities of developing relatively small renewable installations as compared to those in larger, more developed countries.  With relatively smaller populations, economies, and electricity demand, there are fewer kilowatt-hours produced to amortize the up-front investment expenses cost-effectively. However, as the prices for renewable energy equipment continue to decrease and technologies advance, solar, wind, and geothermal are increasingly more viable, least-cost options for diversified energy portfolios.

Flatten the learning curve

Government leaders with a stable long-term vision and implementation plans for increased renewable energy attract the best opportunities for project development. By working collaboratively, utilities, government, regulators and developers can help level the learning curve for initial projects.

Understand that land is precious

Securing appropriate land for project siting poses significant challenges. There is tremendous pride in land ownership, with parcels of land being passed on from generation to generation. Also, there is a history of informal land dealings, which leads to clouded property titles. Consequently, these issues can create local owner resistance to land transactions and long-term leases.

Clarify investment requirements

Banks, investors, and multilateral organizations have mandates, terms, securities and covenants that can be misunderstood in negotiations with governments, utilities and regulators. Policies and processes need to be clearly defined to avoid misinterpretation of project terms.

Harness a sustainable future

Developing renewable systems reliably and affordably requires due diligence to avoid electricity rate increases. It’s a long-term strategy requiring cooperation between stable government policies, flexible utilities, competent regulatory bodies, responsible investors, and credible development partners to design, develop and deliver renewable energy projects as promised.  Read more at Download photos at
