Calgary, Alberta - December 14, 2011
-Calgary-based Sustainable Energy Technologies was selected from
over 50 nominations as the award winner for Outstanding Achievement
in Environmental Technology and Innovation by the Alberta Science
and Technology Leadership Foundation.
The ASTech Awards are the premiere acknowledgement of scientific
and technological achievement in Alberta and are announced at a
banquet held annually in Calgary or Edmonton.
The Company was recognized for its innovation in solar system
integration techniques based on its proprietary Paralex
inverters. Paralex systems deliver reliable performance no
matter where they are installed and are easily adapted to meet
structural or layout restrictions without impacting system
performance or electrical design.
These features were seen as critical to streamlining the
installation business as falling equipment costs drive the industry
toward standardized kits rather than custom designed solutions.
Sustainable Energy (www.SustainableEnergy.com) is a Canadian solar
inverter company which supplies Canada, the U.S. and Europe. The
Company's patented inverter technologies are a breakthrough in
power inverter design and capabilities for all forms of distributed
generation and smart grid applications.
"There is growing adoption of our approach as more and more
residential, agricultural and small commercial systems are being
sold as integrated kits," said Brent Harris, Chief Technology
Officer at Sustainable Energy Technologies.
The Company plans to use the proceeds of the award to support
the extension of our ongoing research collaboration with University
of Alberta and Alberta Advanced Education and Technology.
