Inverter solutions supplier for renewables Sungrow has announced that it has signed 500 MW strategic agreements to supply PV inverter solutions in Japan during the recent PV Expo; fueling the transition to a low carbon economy and overshooting Japan's 2050 carbon neutrality target.

PV EXPO is Japan's largest show for the PV industry. The latest technologies, materials, manufacturing technologies, and solar cell/module are exhibited from across the globe. It is held twice a year in Tokyo (March) and Osaka (September).

Commenting on the deal at the Expo, Sun Xiao, Country Manager of Sungrow Japan said, “The 500 MW agreements forged between Sungrow and some major Japan-based companies, will power a large number of applications in the coming years. "Our actions are firmly grounded in Japanese demands. We're excited for what's to come from these extensive partnerships as it's a tremendous opportunity to create customer value and business growth.”

As per the agreement, Sungrow will supply the battery energy storage system (ESS) named ST159KWH-50HV is a 50 kW-3H system for self-consumption, featuring easy installations and a small footprint. Notably, Sungrow recently supplied a 21 MWh DC-coupling solar-plus-storage project in Hokkaido, ensuring 24 hours continuous yield.

In line with its continued efforts, the company also debuted a future-proof PV and energy storage product lineup optimized for various Japanese market segments.

The ultra-high-voltage (UHV) market in Japan has grown significantly. Sungrow's new high-performance 125 kW string inverter is intended for small utility-scale projects and is consistent with the increasing popularity of high-wattage bifacial modules.

“Sungrow's seven-year Japanese presence aids in aligning with its customers. Our target in 2021 is to increase market share within the energy storage market and get a strong foothold in the UHV PV segment. We foresee the deployment of our commercial product portfolio and a strong beginning with more low voltage projects as well,” said Sun Xiao.
