Advanced Energy Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: AEIS), today unveiled its focus for the upcoming Intersolar Europe event taking place in Munich, Germany from June 8 - June 10, 2011. Advanced Energy will announce recently introduced inverter product solutions, services, and projects in Europe and North America with a special emphasis on large solar PV deployments for commercial and utility customers. Specifically, the company plans to highlight the following: • Products—Advanced Energy will announce the Solaron® 500E HE. The 500E HE has a 99 percent peak efficiency and a 98.7 percent EU weighted efficiency. The 99 percent peak efficiency rating is .3 to 2.5 percent higher than any inverter in this power class, a testament that AE's technical leadership and innovation has led to continuously increasing efficiency. • Services—Advanced Energy will highlight SiteGuard, its whole-site operations and maintenance service plans for large scale installations, which help lower levelized cost of energy (LCOE) and simplify site maintenance while reducing the inconveniences and inefficiencies of working with multiple service providers. • Projects—Advanced Energy will detail some of its recent large project wins which have helped it become the leader in market share growth in PV inverter sales in North America.

"Europe has long been the leader in solar PV adoption, leading to more sophisticated buyers, developers and project financiers who understand the realities around bankability and LCOE, and the importance of innovation in driving the industry forward," said Gregg Patterson, executive vice president and general manager of Advanced Energy Renewables. "This makes the region a fertile opportunity for Advanced Energy's products and services that deliver industry-best efficiencies and performance, leading to improved LCOE for system owners and a higher internal rate of return (IRR) for project investors. With systems installed or in development in Germany, Italy, Czech Republic, Belgium, and the UK, we're excited to be bringing additional products and services to our European partners and to develop more projects in the future."
