Hanwha Launches Residential Solar Battery Pkg (New Prod & Tech)
Hanwha Q Cells
Solar cell manufacturer Hanwha Q Cells is reporting the Australian launch of Q.Home, a "fully wrapped" home solar and storage package.
The Q.Home combines solar panels, a hybrid inverter, and lithium-ion battery storage scalable from 4-12kWh up to 12kWh.
On average, the Q.Home system is expected to generate 355kWh more energy than the industry standard -- which equates to a surplus of 35.5kWh per year for 10 years.
The Q.Home's Home Energy Management System (HEMS) allows consumers to monitor and predict household usage patterns and solar energy production. The system
can also be paired with either of Q Cells new launched premium panels with 25-year product warranty, the Q.PEAK DUO-G5+ or Q.PEAK DUO-G6+. (Source: Hanwha, Oct., 2019)Contact: Hanwha Q CELLS Co., Ltd., www.hanwha-qcells.com, www.hanwha.com/en/about_hanwha.html

Big storage comes to Ireland
A 200 MW storage project is being developed by Hanwha Energy Corporation and Lumcloon Energy. The €300 million facility is intended to stabilize the grid to host more renewable energy capacity.
With that tweet, Ireland’s minister for communications, climate action and environment, Richard Bruton, welcomed the beginning of construction of a 200 MW storage project planned in County Offaly, in Leinster province in the east of Ireland.
The project consists of two 100 MW lithium-ion storage units near the municipalities of Ferbane and Shannonbridge, Irish broadcaster RTE revealed. The developer is Korea-based Hanwha Energy Corporation, the parent company of module maker Hanwha Q Cells, and Irish company Lumcloon Energy Limited is a partner on the project.
The storage facility is intended to secure power supply for the country’s future energy grid, which is expected to accommodate a rising share of renewable energy generation. Lumcloon Energy Limited announced the project with Hanwha in April 2018.
According to the International Renewable Energy Agency, Ireland had a pumped storage capacity of 292 MW at the end of last year. Its installed hydropower capacity stood at 529 MW while solar and wind had shares of 3,518 MW and 29 MW, respectively. Fossil fuels still meet around half of Ireland’s power demand.

Hanwha Launches Home Energy Storage System (New Prod & Tech)
Hanwha Q CELLS,Samsung SDI
South Korean solar cell and module maker Hanwha Q Cells Co., Ltd. is reporting the launch of its new scalable and modular energy storage system -- the Q.HOME+ ESS HYB-G2 -- in Germany.
The Q.HOME+ ESS HYB-G2 is a scalable energy storage system (ESS) complete with hybrid (HYB) inverter, integrated with the Q.HOME MANAGER energy management control platform.
This latest iteration complements Q CELLS' existing All-In-One solution, the Q.HOME+ ESS-G1 inverter, battery and management system, and is initially sized at 4.0 kWh but can be scaled up to 20 kWh capacity at increments of 4 kWh each time. Such modularity makes the Q.HOME+ ESS HYB-G2 an ideal solution for end-consumers that may wish to start small with their storage, and scale upwards as required.
By integrating a hybrid bi-directional inverter into the system, the Q.HOME+ ESS HYB-G2 battery can rapidly and efficiently adapt to the customer's consumption requirements.
The system incorporates lithium-ion battery cells supplied by Samsung SDI. (Source: Hanwha Q CELLS Co., Ltd., SolarNovus, 22 Nov., 2018) Contact: Hanwha Q CELLS Co., Ltd. , www.hanwha-qcells.com, www.hanwha.com/en/about_hanwha.html
