Sungrow Signs MOU with Amp at PV Expo 2023 in Japan
TOKYO, March 17, 2023 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Sungrow, the global leading inverter and energy storage system solution 
supplier, announced that the Company signed the Memorandum of Understanding 
(MOU) with Amp Co., Ltd., one of Japan's largest renewable energy Independent 
Power Producers (IPP) at PV Expo in Japan during March 15-17. The Company 
displayed diversified solar and storage applications tailored to various 
Japanese applications; thus, fueling the transition to a low carbon economy and 
overshooting Japan's 2050 carbon neutrality target.

Cutting-edge inverter solutions for solar projects

Japan sees a large number of utility-scale solar plants being built in 
mountainous areas. Sungrow offers the 1+X Modular Inverter tailored to this 
application, which is an innovation combining the advantages of both central 
and string inverters. The product can be configured up to 8.8 MW with 1.1 MW 
modular capacity and one MPPT for each unit, making the plant design 
unprecedentedly flexible and easier for operation and maintenance (O&M), 
especially for hilly terrains.

Optimized to address the Japanese growing demands for distributed PV plants, 
Sungrow offers a broad product portfolio including the 1500V string inverter 
SG125HX-JP( The product which is 
rated at 125 kW streamlines the configuration and maximizes the LCOE 

A comprehensive ESS portfolio for diversified installations

The energy storage system (ESS) is an ideal solution to tackle the issue of the 
current rising electricity price and power failure in Japan. Sungrow offers a 
comprehensive ESS portfolio for utility-scale, commercial & industrial, and 
residential energy storage applications in Japan.

Japan's utility-scale energy storage market holds great potential, especially 
for the demand for frequency regulation. Sungrow offers its liquid cooled ESS 
PowerTitan tailored to this market. Through liquid cooled thermal management, 
the system has a superior lifespan. The DC-DC controller can charge and 
discharge battery racks individually, increasing the overall system 
performance. Thus far, Sungrow already signed nine gigawatt hours of orders 
with PowerTitan globally.

Japan has an economically beneficial environment and a relatively matured 
residential solar-plus-storage market. Sungrow's residential Hybrid and Battery 
Solution comprises the single-phase hybrid inverter SH5.5RS-JP and the high 
voltage SBR battery, featuring higher yields, simplicity, enhanced safety, and 
intelligent O&M. The solution enables seamless switch to the off-grid mode 
during power outages due to natural disasters like typhoons and earthquakes.

All of the Sungrow's solutions can be monitored and managed via the Company's 
iSolarCloud platform.

"We're ready to embrace increasing opportunities and challenges in the Japanese 
market, expanding our presence and providing cutting-edge products and 
localized services to facilitate the energy transition," said Michael Zhang, 
Country Manager of Sungrow Japan. The company has spent years in Japan and was 
involved in many local solar and energy storage projects, such as the 100 MWp 
Azuma Kofuji solar project, and the 21 MWh DC-coupling solar-plus-storage in 
Hokkaido, Japan.
