Huawei wins Award for Industry leading Smart PV and ESS Innovative Technology

Huawei Solar String Inverters and containerized battery storage solutions emerged victorious in the competitive category of Technology at the SBR International Business Awards.

Climate change and global warming is the foremost challenge of our generation and the momentous task of shifting energy supply away from fossil fuels requires renewable energy sources to be imbued with technological innovation.

Singapore 2030 Green Plan sets out to achieve 2GWp of Solar deployment, up from the current 700MWp, a challenging feat for a small nation state where the sun is abundant but land is scarce. Huawei inverters employ cutting edge technology to achieve a higher efficiency compared to other similar sized inverters, maximizing the clean energy generated on each plot of land and generating higher yield per unit area. Huawei’s smart string inverter solution was also deployed to support EDPR APAC’s offshore floating Photovoltaic (PV) farm (a 5 MW-peak system, which is one of the world’s largest offshore floating PV system) off the north coast of Singapore on the Straits of Johor, using technology to generate clean energy in corrosive, saline conditions.

The introduction of intermittent renewable sources create complexity in grid operation and management. The Sembcorp Energy Storage System (ESS) – owned and developed by Sembcorp Industries – spans two sites on Singapore’s Jurong Island and plays a significant part in supporting Singapore’s transition towards cleaner energy sources. The system is the largest in Southeast Asia and is the fastest in the world of its size to be deployed. On the Banyan site, Huawei provided the Smart String BESS pre-fabricated ESS container solution, supporting the provision of grid ancillary services. The Sembcorp ESS uses a decentralized temperature control system by Huawei which maintains the batteries’ temperature difference within a specified range to ensure an optimum battery lifespan. Huawei International Pte. Ltd. Emerged victorious in the Technology category and walked away with the prestigious award in the recently concluded SBR International Business Awards 2023. Huawei is committed to continual innovation and research of our products and we strive to work together with our customers and partners to be part of the energy transformation for a cleaner and low-carbon energy future, in Singapore and beyond.
