Chinese electronics and engineering company Huawei, which also manufacturers inverters for solar PV systems, is starting the supply of its FusionHome Smart Energy Solution, providing solar-plus-storage capabilities to the Australian residential market during the first quarter of 2018.

Huawei’s FusionHome Smart Energy Solution was officially launched in June 2017 at Intersolar Europe and is compatible with LG Chem’s lithium stationary energy storage batteries. 

Steven Zhoutao, General Manager for Huawei’s Smart PV Business Residential Solution, says: “We believe we will contribute our expertise to the residential market, better develop the residential solar technology and provide strong support for a sustainable development and technical advancements of the global PV market.”

Huawei has focused on string inverters used in utility-scale and commercial and industrial applications until the debut of its first residential product offering last year, which has since undergone rigorous testing and refinements before the product is to be rolled-out across many key residential markets across the world.
