Xia said: “The three residential solutions will help users cope with daily challenges such as load-shedding, which are prevalent across the region. Meanwhile, the residential market faces some challenges such as user experiences, mixing manufacturers, quality, service, efficiency and aesthetics”.

Xia noted that: “Huawei is focusing on ‘4T’ Technologies (Watt/Heat/Battery/Bit); this will drive the residential PV scenarios with high quality products that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also offer high quality system level solutions which integrate digitalisation and intelligence into the PV industry”.

Over its 25 years of operating in sub-Saharan Africa, Huawei has built a deep understanding of the region’s energy and technology requirements. “We supply smart photovoltaic (PV) solutions for all scenarios in the African residential market, and are committed to bringing clean energy to every home.”

Nick Lusson, VP of Huawei Smart PV sub-Saharan Africa Region, gave an overview of the three residential solutions’ features and advantages at the launch.

Power-M is a high-quality power supply system for multi-scenario applications; flexible for use in apartments, houses or large villas. “Huawei has demonstrated its aesthetic design skills as always, by bringing to consumers a sleek design energy system with the ultimate in aesthetics. Thanks to the all-in-one and modular design, the inverter and battery are perfectly integrated; consumers can flexibly choose the number of battery modules to expand the capacity from 5kWh to a maximum 45kWh whenever they want. Power-M supports seamless switchover between multiple energy inputs such as solar, grid and generator. In order to provide a better home-usage experience, Power-M has a no-fan construction with sleep-grade noise; and the operation sound level is less than 29dbm.  The unique plug and play design makes for an easy and quick installation in around two hours,” he said.

LUNA is an intelligent power system integrating smart power generation, smart power storage and smart power consumption. With the Huawei smart module controller, the homeowner can maximise the roof installation capacity – resulting in between 10-30% more panels installed. The smart module controller can also significantly increase solar power generation by improving efficiency 5-30%.

“To ensure the safety of installers and roof usage, the module-level shutdown function provides a safer roof voltage. The intelligent battery storage, ESS, can provide 10% more usable energy with the built-in optimiser in each battery module,” Lusson explained. The LUNA AI system can accurately predict photovoltaic power generation and household electricity consumption under different climate scenarios, based on big data learning of weather and electricity consumption habits. Using the FusionSolar APP, consumers can remotely monitor and manage LUNA anywhere, anytime.

“What’s more, Huawei brings high-end solutions to large villa owners. Thanks to the one-stop solution and premium service, end users can enjoy an ultimate user experience for a fully integrated luxury power generation villa,” Lusson explained.

Huawei and its local partners concluded the launch by committing to bring green energy into every home and creating a better life experience for the people of Africa.
