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.
