The energy landscape is changing. Technology innovation and rising demand for renewable energy infrastructure are altering the way energy is distributed, consumed and monitored.

Electronics are powering this transformation. Power management devices, integrated into roof-mount solar panels, convert and optimize energy at the source. Solar utility fields and wind farms use massive power converters to send energy to the grid. Smart meters and hubs provide insight into energy usage and allow consumers to remotely manage energy consumption. And the rise of electric vehicles (EVs) is driving increased demand for charging stations and battery storage.

As ‘smart’ energy infrastructure evolves, speed, cost and quality have become the new table stakes for delivering stable, reliable and cost-effective clean energy alternatives. Market leaders are faced with big questions around product reliability, data security, grid efficiency, cost competitiveness, government policies, regulatory requirements and safety. The most successful OEMs are nimble, building flexibility into growth strategies to meet the needs of governments, industries and individuals. They engage with partners like Celestica to help ensure they get to market quickly, cost effectively and at the right quality and reliability levels.
