GCL Systems Integration (GCL), the Silicon Module Super League’s newest member, has officially launched 2.5kWh and 5.6kWh energy storage systems for the Australian residential market.

GCL’s new E-KwBe product series made its debut this week at the Australian Solar Council’s 2016 industry exhibition and conference. The devices use lithium-ion batteries which GCL claims have an energy density of up to 125Wh per kg.  

While the initial models target the household PV-plus-storage market, GCL hinted that more devices are to follow.

In April, GCL bought a 51% stake in Australian PV product distributor One Stop Warehouse which has four distribution centres nationwide as well as e-commerce platforms. The move was aimed at expanding GCL’s market share for its products which include inverters and PV panels in Australia and the wider southern hemisphere.

“We aim to create more energy storage products, take a leadership position in influencing market trends and help Australia achieve its renewable energy goals as well as boost energy sustainability worldwide,” GCL chairman Shu Hua said.

The Chinese company was inducted into the rankings for PV manufacturers with the highest production capacities by Solar Media’s Solar Intelligence team last month, in seventh place following “aggressive” capacity additions in 2015.
