Universal PV Interface Alliance (UPVI) Formally Launched

The Universal PV Interface™ Alliance (UPVI) announced its launch as an industry consortium dedicated to the development of a standard, universal electrical and mechanical interface between photovoltaic (PV) modules and embedded module-level electronics or cable assemblies. The UPVI Alliance will enable manufacturers to implement a single interface that is tested and certified to be interoperable with other UPVI-certified products. The UPVI Alliance unifies several parallel efforts to develop a non-proprietary interface, and will ultimately reduce costs, complexity, and technology risk for manufacturers of PV modules, module-level power electronics, junction boxes, and cable assemblies.

The founders of the UPVI Alliance include SunPower, SolarBridge Technologies, SolarEdge, and Tigo Energy. The Alliance has also welcomed Enecsys and T-Conn Precision Corp. as its first additional members.
