SolarEdge Technologies, Inc., will present its new PV storage for residential systems and expanded product portfolio for commercial systems at Intersolar EU. The PV storage solution presented by SolarEdge at Intersolar will also include an inverter solution that allows for grid and PV integration with Tesla’s home battery solution, the Powerwall.
Building on its DC-optimized inverter technology, SolarEdge’s StorEdge is a DC-coupled PV storage solution that uses a single inverter for both PV and storage applications. The storage solutions enable increasing self-consumption for energy independence and an optional power backup. The StorEdge™ solutions are expected to be available by the end of 2015.
SolarEdge will also introduce an extended commercial solution that consists of three inverters, sized 25kW, 27.6kW and 33.3kW. These inverters can be used in commercial installations to minimize the number of required inverters and improve system ROI. Designed to operate with SolarEdge commercial power optimizers, the P600 and P700, the inverters allow up to 2.5 times longer strings than those of traditional inverters. The new inverters will begin shipping in Europe & APAC from July 2015.
“Our portfolio expansion and entrance into the PV storage market advances SolarEdge’s leadership role in providing innovative PV solutions designed to lower the cost of solar energy and accelerate the pace of global PV proliferation,” stated Lior Handelsman, VP Marketing and Product Strategy of SolarEdge.
SolarEdge invites Intersolar Europe attendees to visit its booth, located at Hall B2, Booth 110, to meet its local and global management teams, learn more about its new product offerings, participate in daily trainings, and provide feedback.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
