  1. Dr. Kapur,

    Hello, I am a master’s candidate in physics and have been studying the micro-inverter disruption for some time now. In looking at your firm, Larankelo, I have found that two of your patent applications are assigned to Larankelo, but show Enphase Energy as the applicant on all search engines.

    If you don’t mind me asking: is this a function of faulty search engines, or has your firm licensed the technology to Enphase?

    Thanks for your help,

  2. Dear Dr. Kapur,

    It was great to meet you and listen to your talk at the Energy Conclave at IIT Kanpur last week. Your perspectives will inform my judgments and research in days to come, and I hope that we will have many more opportunities to interact on matters of common interest.
