Sungrow Further Proves Its Commitment to Japan's PV and Storage Market
TOKYO, Nov. 25, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Sungrow, the global leading inverter and energy storage system solution 
supplier, announced its seminar dedicated to empowering the clean energy 
transition of Japan kicked off in Tokyo on November 24. The seminar focused on 
diversified solar and energy storage applications through expert lectures and 
interactive discussions, garnering hundreds of delegates comprising of 
government officials, EPCs, developers, investors, and other industry players.

Expecting a strong stride forward in Japan's solar market

Japan is one of the most vibrant solar hubs with the goal of achieving carbon 
neutrality by 2050. The country increased its renewable energy generation 
target from the previous 22%-24% to 36%-38%. As a pivotal industry pioneer, 
Sungrow contributes to the carbon-neutral goal with industry-leading products 
and services tailored to the Japanese market.

Optimized to address the Japanese growing demands on distributed PV plants, 
Sungrow offers a broad product portfolio including the 1500V string inverter 
SG125HX-JP (https://ja.sungrowpower.com/productDetail/727). The product rated 
at 125 kW streamlines the configuration and maximizes the LCOE significantly. 
Equipped with 12 MPPTs, SG125HX-JP can ensure a premium yield even in the hilly 
terrains in Japan. The high protection capacity of IP66 and C5 makes the 
inverter robust despite working on rooftops where it's vulnerable to harsh 
conditions in the long run.

Innovation in energy storage market development

The energy storage system is an ideal solution to tackle the issue of the 
current rising electricity price and power failure in Japan. At the seminar, 
Sungrow introduced comprehensive solar-plus-storage solutions covering 
residential, commercial, and utility-scale applications, among which the 
residential Hybrid and Battery Solution as well as the liquid cooled energy 
storage system (ESS) PowerTitan captivate much attention.

This residential Hybrid and Battery Solution comprises the single-phase hybrid 
inverter SH5.5RS-JP (https://en.sungrowpower.com/newsDetail/2581) and the high 
voltage SBR battery, featuring higher yields, simplicity, enhanced safety, and 
intelligent O&M. The SH5.5RS-JP features a greater power at 5.5 kW and a 
maximum 200% DC/AC ratio. It can be applied in multi-roof scenarios and 
supports any 200V household appliances. As a result, residential users will 
access more efficient and flexible clean energy. The solution ensures a 
reliable energy supply with Battery-Backup mode when a power failure occurs due 
to natural disasters like typhoons and earthquakes. In addition, families can 
manage their household's energy usage from their smartphones with Sungrow 
iSolarCloud anytime and anywhere.

Tailored to utility-scale energy storage installations, the liquid cooled ESS 
PowerTitan (https://en.sungrowpower.com/newsDetail/2764) achieves higher 
efficiency and performance levels through liquid cooled technology. The 
temperature drift between individual cells is kept below three degrees Celsius, 
extending the life span by 10%. The new cluster controller can charge and 
discharge separate battery racks individually, which improves the overall 
system performance by 6%. The automatic state of charge (SoC) calibration and 
the automated coolant refilling considerably reduce operating and maintenance 
costs. So far, Sungrow already inked gigawatt hours of orders with PowerTitan 
globally.

Inspiring a greener future with Sungrow

Eight years ago, Sungrow made its first entry into the Japanese market. With 
its local branch established in Tokyo, the Company is well equipped with a 
professional local team offering responsive sales, technical support, and 
after-sale services. Sungrow continues to make big moves with inverters and ESS 
installed in landmark projects, in particular a 21 MWh utility-scale 
solar-plus-storage project in Hokkaido, Japan, enabling clean energy supply 24 
hours a day.

"As one of the countries with the most stringent grid codes, Japan presents us 
with lots of opportunities and challenges. We value the continued trust of our 
partners and strongly believe that we'll continue offering cutting-edge solar 
and energy storage products and services tailored to the local market to make 
renewable energy more accessible, stable, and sustainable, and facilitate the 
Japanese carbon neutral goal," commented Michael Zhang, Country Manager of 
Sungrow Japan.

Zhang also mentioned Sungrow was recently awarded a 100% bankability ranking by 
BloombergNEF (https://en.sungrowpower.com/NewsDetail/3139), becoming the only 
company ranked as "100% bankable" and maintaining the No.1 ranking for four 
consecutive years.
