Huawei Digital Power this week at Solar Show Africa 2022, the company launched its full range of FusionSolar Smart PV and Energy Storage System (ESS) solutions for the sub-Saharan African market.

Renewable energy sources will be crucial if the region is to achieve its development goals and ensure that all residents have access to electricity. Africa has the world’s largest solar energy potential with a long-term output of 4.51 kWh/kWp per day. However, sub-Saharan Africa currently accounts for 77% of the world’s population without access to electricity, a proportion that has increased since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We know that sub-Saharan Africa is ideal for renewable energy and solar in particular,” says Victor Koyer, Huawei Smart PV Deputy Director for Sub-Saharan Africa. “But we also know that digital technology is the key to unlocking its potential. We believe our complete suite of Huawei FusionSolar Smart PV and ESS solutions will help utility, C&I and residential stakeholders by ensuring that solar systems are more affordable, more efficient and easier to maintain.”

Solutions launched by Huawei in Africa include FusionSolar Smart PV Solution 6.0+, which allows the PV system to be adapted to different grid scenarios, especially in weak grid environments. Meanwhile, Smart PV solution for residential and commercial and industrial smart PV solution offers comprehensive clean energy for homes and businesses, respectively, with optimized energy costs, proactive safety, intelligent operation and maintenance (O&M) and intelligent assistance to improve the experience.

“These solutions are ideal for promoting the implementation of renewable energy sources at all scales in the region. Take for example the active safety feature: industry-leading AFCI technology provides accurate fault detection and emergency shutdown, significantly increasing system safety. We can also increase power generation by more than 2% under the same conditions and increase installed capacity by up to 30% when using power optimizers in C&I and residential scenarios, which can be directly translated into further reductions in electricity costs,” says Koyer.

“By bringing the knowledge we’ve built up in ICT to the energy sector, we can help make energy supply and management smart,” Coyer concludes.
