Huawei has announced that its smart string energy storage system (ESS) for residential use, the LUNA2000, has received 2PfG 2511 and VDE-AR-E 2510-50 certification from TÜV Rheinland, the German testing and certification service provider. Li Weichun, the Global Head of the Power Electronics Business Segment and General Manager of Greater China Solar & Commercial Products at TÜV Rheinland and Zhou Tao, Vice President of Huawei Smart PV, were present at the award ceremony.
Germany is an important energy storage market in Europe, and leads the world in energy storage applications, quality control and R&D. TUV Rheinland’s 2PfG 2511 and the VDE-AR-E 2510-50 system standard issued by VDE, are the first such standards to conduct comprehensive assessments of energy storage systems. These standards cover most of the safety risks involved and set rigorous technical requirements and test conditions in terms of electrical and battery safety, electromagnetic compatibility, functional safety, energy management, transportation safety and environmental impact. Consequently, the standards ensure that only safe and high-quality energy storage systems are permitted to enter the market.
The LUNA2000 series (LUNA2000-15-S0, LUNA2000-10-S0, LUNA2000-5-S0) is designed to be a modular system and focuses on the functional safety of its electrical and battery performance, BMS, EMS, and thermal management components. As such, the series is adaptable to a wide range of users and markets. Huawei’s LUNA2000 series not only satisfies the requirements of the German and other EU markets, but is also eligible to enter other markets around the world.
”Huawei is a leading company in the smart PV and energy storage industry. Its products have achieved both 2Pfg 2511 and VDE-AR-E 2510-50 energy storage system certification, and passed the most rigorous certification standards in the world. What this means is that Huawei has now officially overcome the most demanding energy storage market entry threshold in the world,” commented Li Weichun, at the ceremony during the SNEC 2021 event.
”Germany has very high standards in terms of energy storage applications and commercialization, and these are far more stringent than those of other regions. As Huawei has obtained this certification, granting access to the German market, our global market expansion can now move forward at an even faster pace. It represents another milestone in our partnership as well,” added Zhou Tao.
