Tigo Announces New Solution for Modeling the Energy Benefits of SMART Module Platform

Valentin Software's PV*SOL Product Now Includes Tigo Energy's Technology

LOS GATOS, Calif., May 28, 2014 /BusinessWire/ — Tigo Energy, the smart module market leader, and Valentin Software, today announced that the newest release of PV*SOL premium includes new capabilities to model Tigo’s SMART module platform. System designers, installers, and financiers utilizing SMART Modules will be now able to accurately model and predict the energy harvest benefit that SMART Modules provide for any site or condition.

«Having a tool that demonstrates the energy gains of Tigo’s SMART Module platform in such an easy-to-use and flexible product is a major step forward for the market,» said Christian Carraro, VP of EMEA for Tigo Energy. «This allows installers and developers to model the ROI of solar systems with SMART Modules and communicate these benefits to the system owners using third-party calculations.»

The new product release was a collaboration between Valentin Software and Tigo Energy to accurately model how SMART Modules work in the field under a variety of conditions. This new solution takes into account the benefits of mismatch correction and the efficiencies of Tigo to accurately predict the output of a system given any number of design and condition variables.

«We have seen growing demand from customers to be able to model the capabilities of smart modules,» said Steffen Lindemann, Managing Director of Valentin Software. «We’re thrilled to introduce a capability that covers the majority of the smart module market and allows a number of our customers to more easily model and deploy these solutions.»

Tigo’s SMART Module platform is available today in PV*SOL’s new design software. Tigo’s module partners today include such manufacturers as Trina Solar, Upsolar, Sunerg, Axitec, Lightway, Luxor, and Jinko Solar among others.
