April 10, 2005 by Jeff Shepard

Sustainable Energy Technologies Ltd. (Calgary, Alberta, Canada), a developer of power electronics for renewable energy applications, announced that Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) has confirmed that the company’s SUNERGY 5 solar inverter complies with UL 1741 standards for grid-tied applications. The UL 1741 is a requirement that power conversion products must meet in order to be sold commercially in North America.

"The UL listing is an important milestone for Sustainable Energy," said President and CEO Michael Carten. "Not only does it clear the way for commercial sales in the North American market, but it is also a key confidence factor for potential partners in Europe. With this behind us, we are able to begin effectively marketing our products, and we are targeting a number of potential partnerships that will enable us to penetrate high-growth markets in Europe."

The SUNERGY inverter uses the same proven technology developed for stationary fuel cell applications to maximize total power output of the solar modules through a wide range of operating conditions.
