Sungrow, a global leader in inverter and energy storage systems, has announced a significant milestone at the recent Intersolar South America event held from August 29 to August 31, 2023.
The company revealed that its cumulative photovoltaic (PV) inverter orders signed in Latin America have now reached a staggering 15 gigawatts (GW). Among these orders, Brazil emerged as the primary driving force with an impressive 10 GW, underscoring Sungrow’s continued dominance in the region.
At Intersolar South America, Sungrow also introduced several groundbreaking innovations to further solidify its position as an industry leader. These innovations include the new three-phase 220V string inverters, the innovative 1+X Modular Inverter, Electric Vehicle (EV) Chargers, and more.
For the residential market, Sungrow offers an extensive portfolio of both one-phase and three-phase PV inverters. In response to the growing need for energy security, the company also unveiled its residential solar-plus-storage solution. This solution integrates hybrid inverters and high-voltage batteries to address potential blackouts, offering homeowners reliable and uninterrupted power.
Sungrow’s commitment to addressing specific market segments was evident with the launch of their latest commercial inverters designed for the three-phase 220V micro-generation solar market (capacity <75 kVA). These inverters, known as SG15/20/25CX-P2-LV, boast impressive power ratings of 15/20/25 kW and feature a DC input current of 30A per Maximum Power Point Tracker (MPPT). They are also compatible with larger format PV modules exceeding 550W, providing customers with more flexibility and efficiency.
In a significant move towards sustainable transportation, Sungrow showcased their EV chargers for the first time at Intersolar South America. The 22 kW AC EV charger and 30 kW DC EV charger garnered significant attention, signaling the company’s intent to play a pivotal role in the future EV market.
Sungrow also presented the iSolarCloud platform, designed to monitor and manage PV projects more efficiently. With a streamlined design and smarter analysis functions, this platform ensures the smooth operation and maintenance of solar installations.
In the utility-scale PV market, Sungrow has been a dominant force in Latin America for several years. Their flagship solution, the 1+X Modular Inverter, combines the advantages of both central and string inverters. It offers flexibility in design, with a 1.1 MW single unit that can be expanded up to 8.8 MW by combining eight units. Each module features an independent MPPT, enhancing the power generation capacity of utility-scale solar power plants while simplifying on-site operation and maintenance.
Sungrow’s success in Latin America aligns with the region’s growing markets in countries such as Brazil, Mexico, Chile, and the Dominican Republic. These markets are projected to continue their upward trajectory, with Sungrow leading the way by providing high-quality, efficient, and affordable solar solutions. In addition to its commitments in the PV sector, Sungrow also offers energy storage systems (ESS) to tackle the volatility and intermittence of renewable energy. Notably, the company supplied its liquid-cooled ESS PowerTitan to the 638MWh Coya project.
Ada Li, Vice President of Sungrow Americas, expressed the company’s enthusiasm for their remarkable achievement, stating, “The achievement of 15 GW is a significant milestone in contributing to this dynamic market. We eagerly anticipate collaborating with more partners to showcase exemplary climate leadership in the coming years, playing a pivotal role in the local renewable energy transition.”
Sungrow’s continued success in Latin America signifies not only their commitment to the region but also their pivotal role in driving a new era of sustainability in the global energy landscape.
