The AC module options the Enphase IQ™7+ Microinverter from Enphase Power, and can debut throughout Europe on the finish of 2021.
Europe’s strong rooftop photo voltaic markets are set to welcome a game-changing PV expertise this month as Q CELLS launches its Enphase Power-powered AC module (ACM) throughout the continent.
Q CELLS, a world-renowned whole vitality options supplier specialising in photo voltaic cell and module expertise, vitality storage, vitality retail and photo voltaic undertaking improvement, in 2020 partnered with Enphase Power, a world vitality expertise firm and the world’s main provider of microinverter-based photo voltaic and battery techniques, to deliver ultra-efficient AC modules to the US photo voltaic market.
This partnership has loved a fruitful begin to life stateside, assembly the calls for of the high-volume US residential market with excessive efficiency, high quality and reliability with the Q.PEAK DUO BLK-G6+/AC Enphase Energized ACM.
The newest iteration of this partnership is the Q.PEAK DUO ML-G9+/AC module, which mixes Q CELLS Q.ANTUM DUO zero-gap expertise with Enphase Power’s seventh-generation IQ microinverter expertise to achieve a module effectivity of as much as 20.6% and an influence output of as much as 385 Wp – delivering excellent yields for the shopper.
These efficiency values are made potential resulting from Q CELLS’ unrivalled Q.ANTUM DUO monocrystalline half-cell expertise, mixed with state-of-the-art circuitry and 12 busbar design. The Q.PEAK DUO ML-G9+/AC module can also be one of many first modules within the trade to be awarded certification underneath the brand new High quality Managed PV (QCPV) program from TÜV Rheinland, which raises the bar of module high quality, effectivity and efficiency. Mixed with a 25-year product guarantee and one of many lowest degradation charges within the trade, the Q.PEAK DUO ML-G9+/AC brings low-maintenance, high-performance longevity to the rooftop.
On the rearside is the Enphase Power IQ Microinverter, which dramatically simplifies the photo voltaic set up course of and supplies an entire on-the-roof AC answer. Because of this there isn’t any excessive direct present (DC) electrical energy on the rooftop, making a safer answer for owners. In immediately changing photo voltaic vitality into AC electrical energy on the module, the Enphase IQ7+ Microinverter ushers in larger efficiencies to assist ship an general decrease LCOE for the tip buyer.
The Q CELLS AC module, primarily based on Enphase IQ Microinverters, additionally characteristic speedy shutdown capabilities within the occasion of a rooftop hazard comparable to a fireplace, and work seamlessly with the total suite of Enphase IQ accent merchandise, together with the lighter two-wire Enphase Q Cable, the Enphase IQ Combiner 3 with pre-installed Enphase IQ Gateway, in addition to the Enphase IQ Battery vitality storage system. Photo voltaic installers who choose the Q.PEAK DUO ML-G9+/AC can monitor their photo voltaic fleets remotely utilizing the highly effective cloud-based Enphase App™ monitoring system.
Dr. Daniel Jeong, Q CELLS CTO, stated: “The continual intention of Q CELLS is to ship to our prospects modern photo voltaic expertise options that present not solely glorious value financial savings, but additionally the peace-of-mind that their funding in PV might be a long-term, low-maintenance one. This ACM partnership with Enphase Power is thrilling for exactly these causes. It demonstrates how two international main expertise suppliers can collaborate to fulfill the wants of the residential markets.
“We’re proud to launch the Q.PEAK DUO ML-G9+/AC module into Europe, which is now primed to embrace the advantages of module-level enhancements in effectivity and efficiency that different areas, such because the US and Australia, have already loved,” Jeong concluded.
