Ideal Power Company Profile (NASDAQ:IPWR)

About Ideal Power (NASDAQ:IPWR)

Ideal Power logoIdeal Power Inc. (Ideal Power) designs, markets and sells electrical power conversion products using its Power Packet Switching Architecture (PPSA) technology. The Company's PPSA is a power conversion technology that utilizes standardized hardware with application specific embedded software. It sells products to systems integrators for integration into their system, which enable end users to manage their electricity consumption by reducing demand charges or fossil fuel consumption, integrating renewable energy sources and form their own microgrid. It focuses on licensing PPSA-based product designs to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) within its target markets. Its products use multiple insulated gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs), which switch power in a direction, including direct current (DC) to alternating current (AC), or AC to DC. The PPSA uses indirect power flow in which power flows through input switches, and is temporarily stored in its AC link inductor.

What are analysts saying about Ideal Power stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Ideal Power stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Ideal Power, Inc. is engaged in development of a novel, patented power conversion technology called Power Packet Switching Architecture(TM). The company also provides photovoltaic inverters and battery converters for grid storage and electrified vehicle fast-charging infrastructure. In addition, it offers hybrid power conversion systems and power switches. Ideal Power, Inc. is based in Spicewood, Texas. " (8/15/2017)
  • 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "Still waiting for customers to roll out storage. Ideal Power reported 1Q17 revenues and EPS that missed our and consensus estimates as the energy storage market is still in its early rollout stage and the ramp remains hard to predict. As positive as the reset of the California self-generation incentive program (SGIP) was for energy storage in mid 2016, it has not yet accelerated deal closures with Ideal Power’s partners. We believe 2017 remains a heavily back-half-loaded year, driven by the commercial rollout of the new Stabiliti 30 kW product for stand-alone storage and SunDial solar inverter product for the solar plus storage market. The rollout was slated to begin in 2Q, but the scope of the primary customer’s needs has expanded, pushing out the launch until 3Q17, but potentially expanding the addressable market. Longer term, the B-TRAN power semiconductor device, EV charging initiatives, and international expansion position the company well beyond 2017. While we do not believe the opportunity set is diminished, the timing of adoption is largely out of Ideal’s control." (5/15/2017)
