HANWHA Q CELLS And Solare Collaborate On Q.HOME+ Energy Storage Solutions
and Hanwha Q CELLS , will collaborate on the Q CELLS brand energy
storage solution Q.HOME+ ESS-G1. Now, users can control and monitor their
Q.HOME+ ESS-G1 energy storage unit using the energy management system
Solar-Log from Solare Datensysteme GmbH. PV monitoring, intelligent feed-in
management and smart energy solutions allow customers to optimise their power
consumption through effective energy management.
The Q.HOME+ ESS-G1 energy storage series is available in
three versions with capacities of 3.6 kWh, 6 kWh or 8 kWh. Customers can choose
the best version for their household or business, depending on individual
average energy consumption. All three versions feature a high-quality
lithium-ion battery, combined with an integrated inverter and battery charger.
The units offer a 10-year product warranty and a performance warranty of at
least 80% after 10 years.
Even though general mobile monitoring has always been
possible for these systems, the integration with the Solar-Log solution now
makes possible more extensive monitoring and analysis functions.
The Solar-Log WEB Enerest online portal displays all the
relevant information on the PV system as well as the Q.HOME+ ESS-G1 energy
storage series. This includes measurements, such as the current charge state,
and the charging and discharging capacity. As a useful analysis option, the
charge history can be displayed for one day or seven days. With Solar-Log,
users can also determine how much stored energy they have consumed and how much
spending they saved on electricity as a result.
Specially designed for the needs of small PV units in the
residential segment, the Gateway Solar-Log 50 and Solar-Log 300 models can also
be combined with the Solar-Log WEB Enerest. These and other Solar-Log models
are compatible with the Q.HOME+ ESS-G1 energy storage series and offer feed-in
management (x % control), either included in the package or via an additional
license. With "x % control", the inverter production is limited to x % of the
module output. When the battery is already 100 % charged and there is no other
equipment active, this control feature caps power surges in accordance with the
Renewable Energy Law.
"We are pleased to
now be able to offer our energy storage customers even more options and maximum
freedom of control over their storage devices," announced Maengyoon Kim, Head
of European Sales at Hanwha Q CELLS. "Solare Datensysteme GmbH has long been
known for their top-of-the-line energy management system. We are extremely
excited about this new development because our customers stand to gain a lot
from this collaboration."
