Growatt Smart Storage

Australia’s growing battery storage industry has prompted the update of battery rules. From June to July Growatt will join a number of senior industry experts in New Battery Rules Training Workshops held by Australia’s SEC (Smart Energy Council) and present its smart solar storage solutions to the audience. PV and battery installers, designers, electricians and sales representatives are coming together for training on battery installations, system configurations and storage solutions.

At an event in Melbourne on June 27, 2019, the company introduced its latest storage ready inverter, TL-XH. The inverter works with low voltage battery and is perfect for homeowners who are looking to convert their rooftop PV systems into solar storage systems in the future. What makes it more special is its smart storage management system. With the system, the inverter manufacturer can gather real-time battery data, including cycle number, cell information, voltage and current of each battery cell. Customers can read the electricity generation, battery status, power consumption on Growatt OSS (Online Smart Service) platform. This data can also help service engineers quickly analyse and diagnose the system and locate the faulty part in case of a system failure.

The firm has also been developing and testing its Smart Home Energy Management System that will maximise energy production and optimise power consumption of a solar storage system according to the system location, power consumption habits, etc. In addition, grid operators can access the storage system and integrate the system into the “Micro Grid” to enhance grid stability.

In May, we reported that global shipments of single-phase inverter increased by 11.2 percent in 2018. Boosted by a strong residential PV demand.

The IHS Markit report revealed that SolarEdge and SMA retained the top 2 single-phase inverter supplier spots, but were closely followed by Growatt, which primarily focuses on rooftop solar inverter solutions, and has been gaining substantial market share for the past three years, and is now close to challenging SMA for the second spot. The Chinese firm has also been accredited as the No.1 residential inverter brand in China, according to the results furnished by the Photovoltaic Brand Lab (PVBL).
