"The development of innovative technologies for a decentralized energy supply has been an essential cornerstone of our corporate strategy since SMA was founded. With more than 400 global patent applications so far, SMA is the world development champion in system technology in the photovoltaics sector," states SMA Speaker of the Managing Board Pierre-Pascal Urbon.
 
"Protecting this intellectual property in an international environment is particularly important for the success of our company. Being presented with the IP Management Award is proof that we are also doing a first-class job in this area."
 
The prize ceremony took place on March 15th, 2013, as part of the convention for patent experts "Patente 2013" in Munich, Germany.
