CHICAGO, IL., May 18, 2021 – Water Tower Research has published a Management Series report on Ideal Power Inc. (NASDAQ: IPWR) focused on exploring B-TRAN and key markets and applications development.
“The company’s technology is a very low-loss, bidirectional power switch with applications in several sectors including key growth markets such as electric vehicles, electric vehicle charging, energy storage, solar, solar coupled with storage, data center, and uninterruptible power supplies,” said Shawn Severson, Co-Founder of Water Tower Research and Head of ClimateTech & Sustainable Investing Research. “A critical takeaway is the company expects its semiconductor technology can generate a greater than 50% improvement in power switching efficiency, which enables better productivity and improves cost-effectiveness. In this Management Series, we discuss the background of the technology development as well as taking initial looks into the markets.”
Mr. Severson continued, “Ideal Power’s technology competes in the traditional IGBT power switch market, which is a $6 billion market and growing about 10% a year. This growth presents an excellent backdrop as the two most prominent drivers for IGBTs are electric vehicles and renewables. The commercialization process continues to progress at the company, and it is through proof of concept and worked with semiconductor fabs to make a double-sided device. The company has tested those, and they correlate very well with third-party simulation. The next step is providing customers with engineering prototype samples so their technical teams can evaluate them to provide feedback. Management expects to start announcing the participants in the customer sampling program as soon as they get permission, creating potential catalysts and milestones to better track progress.
