In the far reaches of northern Mexico

In two remote regions of the Mexican state of Chihuahua, PV-powered microgrids bring electricity to a university and an agricultural ranch, neither of which are well served by the regional grid. The microgrids make use of lithium-ion batteries supplied by Growatt, alongside modules from local manufacturer SolarEver. The projects serve as an example of how products like Growatt’s off-grid inverters and energy storage solutions can bring reliable solar power to regions with limited energy access.

Solar’s happy place

As high-temperature, energy-hungry processes meet rationed electricity and sky-high grid prices, China’s commercial and industrial sector is piling on the solar. Supplying the boom, Growatt’s MAX 125KTL3-X LV inverters ensure maximum value.

Unlocking C&I around the world

Growatt will unveil multiple new products in 2022. It has already announced the global availability of its new flagship line of 125 kW MAX inverters for C&I solar applications and higher-power PV modules. Its new offerings also include batteries, marking the dawn of a new era of commercial solar and storage growth.

C&I rooftops turn toward the sun

Compared to national policy, sustainability factors only play a small role in making the economics stack up for PV adoption by businesses.

Linking solar with energy storage and EV technologies

Solar is booming globally and as costs come down and the technology approaches grid-parity, historically based government incentive models and subsidies are changing –particularly for the distributed generation (DG) rooftop market. But new technologies and capabilities of other distributed energy resources (DERs), such as battery energy storage systems, electric vehicles (EVs), and other smart energy technologies, are stepping into position for a net-zero energy future – providing opportunity to advance beyond the power structures of the past.

Local knowledge, global growth

Through its key regional partner Omnisun Srl, Growatt has offered its products to the Italian market since 2012 – making it one of the first Chinese inverter brands operating in the country. pv magazine caught up with Omnisun’s chief technology officer, Giovanni Marino, to discuss Covid-19, reliable partners, new energy technologies, and his expectations for the Italian PV market.

The smart home in focus

Imagine an energy system where power generation is achieved through a diverse and decentralized network of energy units, such as your rooftop solar panels, that are monitored intelligently and the grid is able to manage supply and demand in real-time fashion. In this next energy era, the electric utilities do not generate their primarily revenues from moving electrons – but instead, by gathering and managing data – offering services rather than power. The vision of this futuristic energy system is not far from reality – and definitely provides a direction of travel for the energy industry.

Off-grid Brazil: extending beyond isolated communities

The Brazilian power grid reaches approximately 99% of the country’s population. To connect the remaining 1% has been challenging – often located in isolated communities of regions that are difficult to reach. With increasing global adoption of solar+storage, and significant price drops across the two technologies over the past decade, the solution is showing promise for the remote Brazilian market. Solar+storage is becoming a more competitive solution than its most popular alternative – diesel – to supply the needed power for off-grid communities. And now, even grid-connected residential properties are opting for independence.

Smart is the name of the game

Set out on a path to make a difference in the world’s energy future, young entrepreneur David Ding started Growatt a decade ago at the age of 30. Since then, his company has moved quickly to become one of the largest rooftop inverter manufacturers in the world. High in energy and swift to make bold moves, Ding is on a mission to shift the role of user-side solar generators – to become active participants of the new energy future.
