Power-M is a High-quality power supply system for Multi-scenario application Multi-scenario application, flexible for the apartment, house or villa. Huawei demonstrated its aesthetic design skills as always, by bringing to consumers a sleek design energy system with the ultimate aesthetics. Thanks to the All-in-one and modular design, the inverter and battery are perfectly integrated, consumers can flexibly choose the number of battery modules to expand the capacity from 5kWh to maxim 45kWh whenever they want. The Power-M supports seamless switchover between multiple energy inputs, such as Solar, Grid, and Generator. In order to provide a better home usage experience, Power-M has a fan-less construction with sleep-grade noise, the operation sound level is <29dbm. And the unique plug and play design makes for an easy and quick installation in around 2 hours.
LUNA is an intelligent power system integrating smart power generation, smart power storage and smart power consumption. With the Huawei smart module controller, the homeowner can maximize the roof installation capacity resulting in 10~30% more panels installed. The Smart module controller can also significantly increase solar power generation by improving efficiency by 5~30%. To ensure the safety of installers and roof usage, the module-level shutdown function provides a safer roof voltage. The intelligent battery storage ESS can provide 10% more usable energy with the Built-in Optimizer in each battery module. LUNA AI system can accurately predict photovoltaic power generation and household electricity consumption under different climate scenarios based on big data learning of weather and electricity consumption habits. Thanks to the FusionSolar APP, consumers can remotely monitor and manage LUNA anywhere anytime.
What’s more, Huawei brings High-end solution to large villa owners. Thanks to the one-stop solution and premium service, the end users can enjoy an ultimate user experience for a fully integrated luxury power generation villa.
At the end of the conference agenda, Huawei together with local partners held a "lighting ceremony" for the launch with Huawei smart photovoltaic (PV) solutions for all scenarios of the African residential market, together committing to bring green energy into every home and creating a better life experience for the people of Africa.
