    Enphase Charges Into the Energy Storage Market

    Enphase didn't exhibit at last year's Solar Power International, but the microinverter specialist has traveled to Las Vegas this year with an improved microinverter -- and a bit of a surprise. Paul Nahi, Enphase's CEO, said the firm's fifth-generation microinverter is its "most technologically advanced microinverter -- this was not even possible to do when we started the company." He noted that the 275-watt, 97 percent CEC efficiency microinverter "needed to address the complexity of the grid" with reactive power control, volt/VAR and ride-through.
