Renewable Energy

Renewable energy is the road to a greener, more secure energy future. It’s a road being paved by Wolfspeed silicon carbide semiconductors and materials.

Overview

A greener future is at hand.

In April 2019, the United States passed a significant milestone. In that 30-day period, renewable energy output surpassed that of coal generation in the U.S. for the first time in history.1 It’s proof that by working together, we can make a low-carbon society a reality.

All of our energy goes into conserving yours.

Wind, solar, hydropower, geothermal and bioenergy sources now provide one-third of all global power capacity, and that’s rising quickly as nations seek alternatives to an increasingly problematic reliance on fossil fuels. These five renewable sources all share a common characteristic: they rely on semiconductors and materials that convert electrical power by adjusting the voltage, current, and frequency as required by various types of equipment and applications.

Energy is limited — how we use it matters. Wolfspeed has spent 30 years developing devices that help make sure every kilowatt hour is expended with extreme efficiency, to the greatest effect, using the least possible energy, regardless of the source of that energy. When it’s from renewable sources, it makes our work even more rewarding. As the manufacturer of the industry’s fastest, smallest, lightest, most efficient and highest-performing wide bandgap Silicon Carbide (SiC) power semiconductors, we’re more committed than ever to providing designers of any and every power system the tools to achieve their vision of a more secure energy future.


Renewable Energy Applications

Wolfspeed's silicon carbide-based converters help to create efficient wind-energy solutions.

Wind Power

Wolfspeed’s Silicon Carbide-based converters outperform silicon-based devices by conserving energy and reducing system size and lifetime cost. Their inclusion enables a seven-fold gain in switching frequency, thanks to the low-loss, high-frequency, and high-temperature capabilities of wide bandgap Silicon Carbide. Our components are designed to allow field service engineers to pop them in as one-for-one replacements for traditional Si devices.
