Without a doubt, the markets of Brazil, Chile and Mexico will continue to be leaders in the region. However, with new regulations we expect the exponential growth of markets that are promoting the use of renewable energies, such as Argentina or Colombia.
Do you have any new technology planned?
That's right, we have been in the Latin American market for many years and as a result we study the requirements of each country from a technical and regulatory perspective.This year we launched Generation X of our investors, which are designed based on four key concepts: security , quality, elegance, and intelligence; Proof of this is our MAC 15-36k TL3-XL, a 220V three-phase inverter that we designed especially for small businesses and industry in countries like Mexico and Colombia.
On the other hand, we note the requirement to bring energy to all isolated regions of large cities on the continent, areas ranging from Patagonia, Amazonia or rural communities in northern Mexico, in order to guarantee energy supply with our isolated inverters, hybrids and lithium batteries.
Last September at SNEC 2020, which is the most important expo in the investor industry, we presented our MAX 185-253KTL3-X HV inverter, which we have designed for use in large-scale plants and we see great potential in markets. from Latin America for this team.
We are a leading company in the global market that constantly seeks innovation in the photovoltaic industry and we will continue to develop innovative solutions in the industry "

Latin America is, together with Europe, the regions that have grown exponentially in recent years, and without a doubt Latin America will play a fundamental role in the international market for the next few years.
The reduction of costs and the implementation of regulations that allow the interconnection of photovoltaic installations for distributed and large-scale generation will be key to the development of these markets.
