Huawei spotlights the smart solar game

LIVE FROM INTERSOLAR EUROPE, MUNICH: Huawei has sought to further underline its credentials in the sustainable technology market with its latest kit, deploying artificial intelligence and power management tools to optimize energy storage and use.

At the trade show, Huawei showcased upcoming additions to its systems designed to help businesses and consumers maximize the use of solar panels on their properties, while improving security.

Among the range is a residential smart PV 3.0 solution, marketed as Huawei’s FusionSolar Europe range. It includes various elements of a smart home energy system, except for the panels themselves.

The system can be built to include: smart modules to optimize energy harvesting; a storage facility to conserve unnecessary energy for later use; charging station for connected electric vehicles; and intelligent energy controller.

It also includes a management system capable of controlling the various elements, including via an application.

Huawei is also set to launch AI management assistant EMMA, which will provide power generation estimates using big data assets, including the latest weather forecasts and historical data. He can then adjust the feeding system accordingly.

On the enterprise side, new products include systems designed for large-scale photovoltaic power plants and smart microgrids.

Huawei has been in the energy business for some time with a range of large-scale deployments and home systems already in place in various markets. It seeks to position the product line as “demonstrating Huawei’s continued commitment to technological innovation and sustainability.”

Speaking at the launch, Hariram Subramanian, European Technical Director of Huawei’s FusionSolar Solutions (illustrated), cited rising energy costs and increased electricity consumption as key drivers of new smart power systems.

It added products grouping digitalization and power electronics.

Huawei’s latest range is set to launch in Europe later this year and is being sold through solar power distribution channels.
