What’s your role at Hoymiles?
I’m in charge of storage products.
How long have you been in power electronics?
It’s been more than ten years since I started. And I joined Hoymiles right after I finished my PhD, so I’ve been here a long time.
What’s your professional passion?
I have two. I like making every product the best it can be and it means a lot when customers recognize that reliability and quality. Day-to-day, I’d say my biggest passion is solving problems, which is very fulfilling.
What do you enjoy most about working at Hoymiles?
I like working with the team. There’s a relaxed atmosphere but, at the same time, everyone is working hard to achieve our shared goals.
What’s your biggest accomplishment?
Our storage product – it’s something we started from scratch. In the beginning, we didn’t know anything about storage, but we developed it bit by bit. It took a lot of effort, but I’m proud that, today, our customers can benefit from a reliable, efficient storage product.
What’s your biggest challenge?
The storage product again. Nobody on the team had relevant experience and everything was an obstacle. But we learned together, developed new expertise, and overcame these challenges.
How do you maintain a work/life balance?
I spend time with my child and family.
What’s your favorite book or podcast?
I like professional books and history books. I really enjoyed Records of the Three Kingdoms and the Biography of Wang Yangming.
What do you think solar will look like in 100 years?
New energy with solar storage at the core will be integrated into people’s lives. It’ll be no different from the way we use conventional energy today. But solar storage products will be lighter, smaller, and safe. The world will no longer worry about electricity.
What do you enjoy outside of work?
I like to play football — I’m also part of the Hoymiles football team. And I love science fiction movies. My favorites are The Matrix, Inception and Transformers.
