ATI Technologies Inc. was a semiconductor technology corporation based in Markham, Ontario, Canada, that specialized in the development of graphics processing units and chipsets. Founded in 1985 as Array Technologies Industry, the company was listed publicly in 1993 and was acquired by Advanced Micro Devices in 2006. As a major fabrication-less or fabless semiconductor company, ATI conducted research and development in-house and outsourced the manufacturing and assembly of its products. ATI and its chief rival Nvidia emerged as the two dominant players in the graphics processors industry, eventually forcing other manufacturers into niche roles.The acquisition of ATI in 2006 was important to AMD's strategic development of its Fusion generation of computer processors, which integrated general processing abilities with graphics processing functions within a single chip. Since 2010, the ATI brand name is no longer used for any of AMD's graphics processor products. Wikipedia.

Array Technologies, the largest supplier of tracking systems to the US solar market, believes the election of Donald Trump will not derail the domestic PV market, even if the solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) were dismantled. “I’m optimistic that the election will not have any major impact on the trajectory [of the market] one way or the other,” Robert Bellemare, chief financial officer at Array Technologies, tells Recharge. Bellemare says he has not heard any credible reports indicating that the incoming Trump administration or Congress will look to take an axe to the solar ITC, which received a multi-year extension at the end of 2015. New Mexico-based Array commanded a leading 30% share of the US market for PV tracking systems in 2015, edging rivals NEXTracker and First Solar, according to GTM Research. The US tracker market has grown rapidly in recent years as the utility-scale solar sector has matured, and is expected to be worth $1.4bn this year. Even if the ITC were scrapped or watered down, the US solar market would remain healthy, Bellemare believes. “I’m not saying there wouldn’t be an effect,” he says. “It could cause a pause in the market as people adjust; you’d have to change the way you finance.” “Obviously your preference is to keep the ITC – the tax credit makes it a no-brainer.” “But I do think solar would still make sense without it, it’s just how you’d go about financing projects that would change,” he says. “The overall trajectory would still be very positively high. I think solar competes really well, with or without the tax credit.”

In a new report, The Global PV Tracker Landscape 2016, GTM Research forecasts 12.6 gigawatts of PV trackers to be installed around the world this year, up from 5 gigawatts in 2015. By 2021, tracker installations will grow to 37.7 gigawatts and account for nearly half of all ground-mount solar systems. The report notes that ground-mount systems will continue to represent 70 percent to 75 percent of all solar installations over the next five years, and within that segment, trackers will gain share on the fixed-tilt market. “Today’s boom in the tracker market is due, in large part, to the rapid build-out of projects in the United States,” said Scott Moskowitz, GTM Research solar analyst and lead author of the report. “The economic case for tracking systems is fully proven, and over 70 percent of U.S. ground-mount projects are now being installed with trackers. We expect falling prices to drive further growth of the tracking installations around the world.” Global tracker market growth will be temporarily subdued in 2017, however, as U.S. demand falls from its all-time high. Countries such as Chile, Brazil, Mexico, Jordan and Egypt are expected to experience near-term growth and help the overall market’s upward trajectory. Tracker installation growth in 2017 will be 19 percent, compared to 83 percent annual growth from 2013 to 2016 and 21 percent annually from 2017 to 2021. By 2018, the Asia-Pacific region will be the largest regional market for trackers, as the Indian utility market grows and the Chinese market matures. According to the report, APAC growth heavily depends on falling tracker prices, improving investor sentiment and maturation of local vendors. The vendor landscape is highly concentrated, with the leading four vendors, NEXTracker, Array Technologies, First Solar and SunPower, accounting for 72 percent of global shipments in 2015. Tracking technology varies significantly, though the market is dominated by single-axis trackers. In 2015, dual-axis trackers accounted for just under 4 percent of all tracker shipments. The global value of tracker installations will top $4.9 billion in 2021, up from just under $1 billion in 2015. In terms of market value, trackers will be the largest racking segment globally by 2018. Want access to all of GTM Research's reports? Learn more about a solar research subscription here.

Solar tracking market leader NEXTracker today announced an energy storage add-on for its signature product. Solar trackers have seen tremendous growth in the last few years as costs come down. That growth stayed strong this year in spite of slowdowns and turmoil in other sectors of the solar industry. Trackers now account for 70 percent of U.S. ground-mount projects. As the tracker industry matures, companies are feeling more pressure to differentiate themselves from rivals. The competition is fiercest between NEXTracker and Array Technologies, which respectively controlled 24 percent and 20 percent of the global market in 2015, respectively, according to GTM Research. NEXTracker upped the ante with its new NX Fusion Plus. It leverages "best-in-class solar tracker, battery, inverter and software technologies," the company said, to extend the usefulness of a tracking solar plant. Other tracker companies bundle trackers with inverters and balance-of-system components, and developers could already deploy storage alongside a solar tracker project. But this formulation is a new development for the industry. "There’s not another tracker vendor that offers that at the moment," said Scott Moskowitz, the senior analyst at GTM Research who follows solar trackers. The current plans are to offer two main storage choices, which cater to different sets of customer needs, said NEXTracker CTO Alex Au. One option is the containerized lithium-ion package made by parent company Flex; the other is to integrate long-duration flow batteries from a yet-to-be-announced partner directly into the rows of trackers. "We’re not just white-labeling something; we’re creating an improved system together and leveraging our existing infrastructure," Au said. The DC-coupled flow battery system would be able to absorb solar generation while minimizing the efficiency losses of extra power conversion. It would also address the problem of "clipping," in which generation isn't sent out because a system's inverters can't handle the capacity at a given moment. The storage can hold onto that extra power and push it out at a later time. And, of course, storage can do plenty of other things too. In describing the product, Au endeavored to find a middle path between two extremes: lack of choice and too many choices. "A lot of times with storage, when you don’t have more than one tool for the customer to use, you force a solution and it’s not as genuine," he said. On the other hand, if the storage provider steps back and offers a blank slate, the customer doesn't benefit from the expertise of the company. And if the company builds a custom design for every customer, it forfeits the cost savings that come from a battery design that's highly integrated into the tracking system. Au sees his company's storage packages as "a toolbox, and there are certain tools needed for certain tasks." NEXTracker will suggest the best of the available tools for each customer's use cases. Huge utility-scale solar plants may gravitate toward the lithium-ion option to add some grid services abilities to their portfolio. But NEXTracker will also pursue smaller customers, like farms that struggle with hefty demand charges, or big-box stores that want more control over their energy usage. The lithium-ion product is ready now, Au said. The flow option will leave the factory in Q2 2017. Most of the leads so far are in California, as is to be expected with storage. But Au said his team is examining other markets as well. That points to a constraint inherent to adding storage to the platform: The storage markets themselves are still small and geographically limited. That means the storage-plus-tracker probably won't be a big driver of NEXTracker's bottom line any time soon. "The real driver for tracker vendors going forward will be the growth of tracking in markets outside of the U.S.," Moskowitz said. "It’s going to be places where utility solar is still developing, like China, India, the Middle East and Latin America." "I don’t think a storage application is going to fundamentally change that," he continued. "But it should allow NEXTracker to differentiate itself from competitors who don’t have that capability, and it lets them appeal to customers who need the specialized production profile that storage provides." In the near term, then, the NX Fusion Plus can appeal to specific customers with specifics needs. Longer-term, Au envisions NEXTracker selling fully integrated clean energy systems that can serve their customers as well as the grid. The company has an ongoing project that aims to "decapitate the duck" by smoothing out the evening peak of the famous "duck curve" with solar production from earlier in the day. This new offering contributes to that, in a streamlined and user-friendly way. The first test will be how many customers want both solar trackers and storage. Solar-plus-storage is trending up, and in the U.S., at least, most large solar installations favor tracking. The prospects there look good. That leaves it up to NEXTracker to prove that those customers would rather buy both from the same vendor.
