For the past few days people from across the solar industry were gathering at Intersolar Europe. Global solar markets have ups and downs, but this year the world’s leading annual solar exhibition are filled with optimism. Speaking at European Solar Development Seminar organized by Growatt, IHS Markit Senior Analyst Susanne von Aichberger said, “From our research and analysis, we believe European solar installations are on the rise. This is good news for the industry.”
Overall, European Union is set to reach EU-wide renewable energy target though some member states fail to reach their own 2020 targets according to Susanne. Encouraged by the solid growth of European solar markets, Growatt has been increasing its investments in the region, hiring more staff and establishing branch office in Rotterdam recently.
At the seminar Growatt Co-founder and Sales Director Frank Qiao unveiled a couple of its next generation PV solutions to the audience. Its latest product developments, MIN 2.5-6k TL-XH and MAX 50-80kTL3 impress the audience a lot. “At first glance, you’ll find our new generation product models have got appealing designs. But that’s not all. Their powerful functions will make them more attractive”, said Qiao.
“MIN has OLED display and touch button and customers will have a better user experience. Its touch button has a longer lifespan and can last over three million clicks. Moreover, it’s storage ready. We are seeing the trend in solar storage and though we have already offered one-stop storage solutions for both retrofitting and newly-built PV systems, our new residential inverter includes this storage ready feature that will help reduce the cost and prepare the system owners for the future of self-consumption and storage.”
For commercial and industrial rooftop solar projects, Qiao strongly recommends MAX 50-80kTL3, “At this fair we are receiving a lot of positive feedback for MAX. Many clients think MAX’s not only cool but have got many features that will suit their projects, such as 6 MPPTs, anti-PID, AFCI etc. What makes it more special is its quad-core architecture. With dual DSP, CPLD and ARM chips, its capability has been greatly enhanced to handle functions like surge protection, I-V curve scan, fault waveform record, one-click diagnosis and so on.”
Growatt has been growing steadily in Europe for the past nine years and with offices established across Europe, new models added into the product lines and more staff joining their team, Qiao is looking to grow their sales substantially in coming years.
