SolarEdge and SMA’s launches of inverters compatible with Tesla’s Powerwall and LG Chem’s new range mark a “growing trend” towards higher voltage batteries for residential PV systems, an IHS analyst has said. Marianne Boust, a principal analyst on power technologies with the research firm, told Energy-Storage.News this morning that she anticipated that higher voltage batteries, already used in the EV industry and typically 250-450V, “will eventually be commonly used in the stationary energy storage market as well”. This week, SolarEdge, which along with Fronius was one of the first two inverter makers with Powerwall-compatible products available, confirmed that LG Chem’s RESU10H and RESU7H batteries can also be used with Storedge, SolarEdge’s energy storage solution for PV self-consumption. Meanwhile, SM...
