General Electric (GE) is to develop and deploy advanced inverter control technologies that can handle higher amounts of solar power while improving the reliability of the grid.
The company’s research arm has been awarded $4.2 million (£3.3m) by the Department of Energy for the inverter improvements to support the increasingly distributed, renewable-intensive grid in the US.
Renewable electricity generation doubled from 382 million MWh in 2008 to 742 million MWh in 2018 in the US, with solar generation increasing nearly 50 times during the same period.
