Welcome To

Universal Photovoltaic Interface Alliance

The Universal PV Interface Alliance™ (UPVI) is a consortium of companies dedicated to accelerating and streamlining the integration of PV modules with module-level electronic devices. UPVI will create a standard interface which will increase competition while decreasing time to implementation, thereby reducing the overall cost of solar energy.

UPVI members represent the entire range of the solar power ecosystem - from electronics manufacturer, to module vendors, to regulatory entities, and testing houses. This broad industry perspective will help ensure that the solutions produced by the UPVI meet the needs of all constituents and provide a true, universal interface.

Member Benefits

The UPVI Alliance has created a structured organization with three tiers of membership in order to provide a range of benefits that meet the needs of the many types of different solar industry organizations, both large and small. The benefits enable different levels of participation, organizational leadership roles, marketing opportunities, and certification abilities. This range of benefits allows an organization to choose the membership level that best match its strategy and objectives.

UPVI Standards
 
 

The UPVI will define a low-cost, high-reliability standard connection for electronics-embedded solar modules. These standards will cover both the mechanical and electrical interfaces between the devices.

By analogy to the Universal Serial Bus (USB) interface found in personal computing components, the Universal PV Interface will simplify connecting module-level power electronics with Photovoltaic modules.
