Growatt receives pv magazine award 2020 for its new generation inverter


The inverter is the intelligent core for its Grohome solution that integrates solar and storage, EVs and IoT devices to deliver higher self-consumption, smarter and more efficient energy solution.

“There has been much talk about smart homes, but so far few easy-to-use integrated solutions are available in the market. Growatt’s new inverter along with its GroHome system is a true smart home enabler, and as such a trailblazing solution in making the home more energy efficient and less reliant on external energy resources,” commented Eckhart K. Gouras, Managing Director at pv magazine.

“Growatt’s awarded new inverter is at the center of our smart energy solution, the GroHome system. It’s the core control unit and the foundation for customers to extend their PV systems to GroHome system in the future,” said Frank Qiao, Vice President at Growatt. First launched in Australia, this new generation inverter is a great success with over 70,000 units shipped in the country in 2020. This smart inverter is also being offered in Europe, APAC and Latin America.

“Globally, we sold more than 150,000 units of the new inverter in 2020, and in three years’ time, we expect to ship over one million units worldwide. Having installed this new inverter, customers can expand their PV systems to use our GroHome solution and enjoy the benefits of smarter and more efficient solar energy solution and receive higher returns for their investments,” Qiao added.

Growatt has been continuously bringing innovations and new technologies to its products and solutions since its foundation a decade ago. The company invests heavily in research and development and has more than 400 engineers in its R&D team. “With over a decade of experience in the solar industry, our team understands what customers need and the technological trend in solar energy. That’s why our product innovations are popular among customers around the world,” said Qiao.
