Renesas Electronics America Inc., a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, today announced it will highlight its portfolio of smart energy solutions at Solar Power International, September 11-13, the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. At booth #6616, Renesas will showcase powerline communications (PLC) technologies that enable the reliable and cost-effective deployment of building automation and metering applications in smart energy microgrids. Renesas will highlight its voice-over PLC technology in the Smart Energy Microgrid Pavilion section and will also showcase its market-leading power metering and advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) communication solutions.
As more system manufacturers commit to minimizing their long-term carbon footprint, microgrids offer a flexible distributed energy system for solar and other renewables. Successful microgrid deployment requires robust communications between several elements, including photovoltaic (PV) cells, energy storage systems, HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) controllers, sensors, and power meters. At Solar Power International, Renesas will highlight its third-generation system-on-chip (SoC)-based PLC technologies and field-proven metering solutions that enable reliability, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness. These technologies allow system integrators, solution providers, and microgrid architects to simplify development and dramatically reduce the costs of smart-energy infrastructures.
