A beacon of distributed solar light

Solar energy is not only key to the energy transition and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions; it is also a way to empower remote and rural communities that are isolated from easy access to electricity. Across the globe, distributed solar solutions are being implemented to improve the well-being of individuals, communities, and businesses by providing access to clean, affordable energy. Huawei technology is at the heart of many of these solutions, as the following case studies from Africa and the Middle East demonstrate.

Residential solar value after sunset

Solar energy is smarter and more affordable than ever before. And with its LUNA2000 distributed battery storage product, Huawei is further unlocking the value of PV, enabling the use of solar energy long after sunset. By taking a closer look into some key residential storage markets, how this value stacks up truly becomes clear.

Smart solution for dispatchable solar

World-record prices have become the default setting for large-scale solar development in the Gulf Cooperation Council region. At the forefront of this development is the United Arab Emirates, which has led the way with its Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park in Dubai. And, as the latest stage of the vast project reveals, intelligence, optimization and ongoing high performance is making all the difference.

Scaling up string inverters in Chile

French multinational energy company ENGIE plans to cease all of its coal-fired power generation activities in Latin America by 2025. In Chile, which enjoys some of the highest solar irradiation levels in the world, much of this capacity will be replaced by PV projects – many of which are already in development. pv magazine spoke with ENGIE’s energy efficiency product manager, Francisco Retamal, as well as Senior Project Chief Julio Saintard and Senior Business Developer Cristopher Llanos about their experience working on solar projects in Chile, and the growing role for string inverters like Huawei’s in all market segments.

Thai solar CEO goes Huawei at home

Cathleen Maleenont has led Thai Solar Energy PCL for more than a decade, steering the company to its position at the forefront of renewables development in the Asia-Pacific region. After selecting Huawei to be its technology partner for what will be Japan’s largest solar plant, Maleenont has quite literally decided to take Huawei’s solutions home with her, by installing them as part of her own personal solar system.

Sites, market conditions, O&M drive tech decisions

The move by hydropower leader Statkraft to acquire Solarcentury in late 2020 brought solar front and center to its renewables strategy. Christopher West, the head of central engineering for Statkraft’s solar engineering division, says that flexibility and the ability to adapt to specific site and market conditions are dictating project development in Europe.

The importance of energy storage and dispatchable, smart PV power

It takes deep commitment to innovate in PV’s rapidly changing landscape. Huawei has continued the tradition for innovation in solar that it has built over more than a decade with the next frontier – dispatchable, smart PV power. Chen Guoguang, the president of Huawei Smart PV, elaborates on the importance of energy storage and Huawei’s vision in this field.

Huawei’s Global Virtual Summit showcases booming BESS market and Huawei’s new FusionSolar solution for large PV + Energy Storage projects

On July 22, 2021, Huawei brought together experts in the large-scale solar PV and battery storage markets to discuss industry trends, the additional revenue streams created by battery storage systems, and Huawei’s latest FusionSolar All-Scenario PV & Storage Solution.

Next-generation solar power: unique design and energy storage for grid stability

Huawei brings to the market its latest-generation solutions for solar PV architecture, featuring not one but three new devices, which are designed to work together in a rather unique and intelligent fashion. The result is dramatic cost saving on the BoS side and much improved whole-system efficiency.

AI steps into maintenance

The Covid-19 pandemic quarantine has introduced a new set of challenges for solar PV operations and maintenance. The topic has gained industry attention now that PV sites lack onsite personnel. Huawei says its new Smart I-V Curve Diagnosis – integrating artificial intelligence, digital technologies, and PV – is a first-step solution toward unmanned O&M. With the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) ever decreasing, improvements in O&M efficiency and accompanying cost reductions may accelerate the arrival of the grid parity era.
