The U.S. Department of Energy provided $3 million in funding to engineering researchers at the University of Texas at Austin to develop innovative solutions for solar energy storage.

Most current solar systems use external energy storage systems to provide electricity. In other words, two separate systems are required to ensure successful operation.

But experts at the University of Texas at Austin's Cokerell School of Engineering have developed a way to integrate solar power and energy storage into one system, effectively reducing costs by 50%. The project will develop the next generation of utility-scale PV inverters, also known as modular, multi-function, multi-port, and medium-voltage utility-scale silicon carbide solar inverters.

In general, these combination technologies are called M4 inverters, whose main function is to convert the DC output of solar panels to AC, eliminating the need for large and expensive power frequency transformers.
