Ginlong (Solis) has showcased two enhanced inverter ranges at the K.EY energy transition exhibition held in Rimini. Flagship products on display included the company’s 6th generation energy storage inverters (“S6”), in single and three phase configurations, and its 100K-5G-PRO series for higher powered commercial and industrial applications.
Key enhancements to the company’s S6 storage inverters include a larger charge and discharge current of 125A for a global equivalent power range, a ‘1+N’ full energy storage capability, single or three phase functionality and millisecond switchover times during supply interruptions.
Sales director for western Europe Giovanni Buogo commented: “Solis has launched a new 6th generation range of energy storage inverters, especially configured for Europe. Our unique ‘1+N’ concept allows the integration of modules and functionalities that facilitate smart matching between user demand and scenarios, while also enabling ‘super terminal’ capability. Installation time has also been reduced by 20% due to easy and quick operation and convenient application. The Solis 100K-5G-PRO is a new generation of storage-ready inverter designed to accommodate the growing adoption of higher powered 182mm and 210mm PV panels in the commercial and industrial market.”
Buogo went on: “The advanced storage capabilities of our 5G-PRO and S6 series inverters are extremely timely for the Italian and wider European markets, where we are seeing a fundamental shift in project scale this year. While extension of Italy’s ‘superbonus’ tax break fueled high demand for residential PV and storage installations in 2022, its recent withdrawal means that 2023 is likely to be more focused on C&I installations. There is also a growing interest in not just the traditional standalone PV setup, but a combination of PV and storage, which has become increasingly desirable as grids and governments incentivise demand response measures. This combination is a relatively novel concept, especially in Italy, and could signal the start of a ‘new normal’ involving both PV and storage.”
