SwitchDin enters European market with first shipment of residential battery storage package from Eguana / Hanwha Q CELLS
SwitchDin’s Droplet battery controller and Virtual Power Plant software is headed to Europe as part of the first volume shipment of Hanwha Q CELLs Q.HOME+ package in Germany. The Q.HOME+ package incorporates Eguana’s Enduro battery storage system, which is equipped with an on-board version of SwitchDin’s smart energy management (EMS) and virtual power plant (VPP) enabling software.
"SwitchDin is proud to make its entry into the European market with this industry leading partnership of Hanwha Q CELLS and Eguana,” said Dr Andrew Mears, CEO of SwitchDin. “Our vendor-agnostic software will support them to offer their customers an easy-to-use, flexible home battery storage solution.
“In addition to enabling smooth compatibility with a wide range of equipment types & brands (including pre-existing solar installations), our technology also gives utilities and aggregators a portal for secure Virtual Power Plant operations, to benefit end users, utilities, and the electricity system as a whole - not to mention the environment."
SwitchDin’s software connects directly with inverters, battery storage systems, power meters, sensors and other devices to unify and simplify management of distributed energy resources (DERs). An off-the-shelf energy management system (EMS) and secure communications gateway, SwitchDin’s Droplet technology can be embedded into or installed alongside a range of system types and configurations, in either hardware or software form.
Hanwha Q CELLS’ new Q.HOME+ energy storage system was launched at the Intersolar/ees show in Munich, which was held on May 15-17th. Based on the positive Q CELLS sales and market feedback from the show, Eguana has received a request to increase the quantity on the next shipment occurring in July; they expect Q CELLS to maintain a monthly order cycle with good sales throughout Europe and UK.
