"The GoodWe C&I inverter offer is a perfect match for the demand from this rising market”
With a flurry of news about new projects and a pressing need for diversifying energy industry, Ukraine has become in a very short period of time one of brightest PV market of Europe. The recent decision of the country to replace its feed in tariff regime for large scale renewables with an auction mechanism aimed at driving down costs, simply confirms the strong commitment of Ukraine for solar in the long term and brings certainty to market players.
It is against that backdrop that GoodWe participated last week as an exhibitor at the SOLAR UKRAINE 2019 which was held during the 9th of April to 12th at the Kyiv Expo Plaza Exhibition Center. During this exhibition GoodWe showcased inverters of the series DNS, SMT, MT, EM, ET, catering for the demand for the Residential, C&I and energy storage sectors of Ukraine, all of which have experienced a strong demand since the country expressed its long term and strategic decision to go solar.
The DNS is a single phase, 2 MPPT, 3-6kWs residential inverter that on account of its compact design and unique combination of technical advantages has achieved a great success across different markets.
The SMT is the perfect rooftop inverter for mid-size C&I installations; this is a three-MPPT, three phase 25 to 36kWs inverter that due to its wide MPPT range and output voltage of 180V, offers a stronger return on investment. This inverter achieves a 98.8% efficiency and weighs only 40kgs.
The MT is truly a GoodWe star product and the success that this C&I inverter has conquered over the past year is absolutely remarkable. This is a 4-MPPT, three-phase inverter available on 50 to 80kWs. In addition to its high efficiency of 99.7% and MPPT range from 200 to 1000V, that ensure a very early generation, this inverter has a long list of strengths, such as monitoring at the string level, smart fan cooling, wide interface options, data logger compatibility, PLC communication and a vast set of safety protections.
GoodWe also presented at this exhibition two of its most successful hybrid inverters, the EM (single-phase, compatible with low voltage batteries) and the ET (three-phase, compatible with high-voltage batteries) that are highly respected in the industry (outstandingly winner of the TUV All Quality Matters Award) due to their long durability (in countries such as South Africa, many of these models are installed and the feedback has remained very positive in all respects all over the years), strong functionality and comprehensive high value.
The GoodWe products on display attracted many inquiries from local customers that were able to appreciate the high value that the GoodWe technology offers. The majority of the visitors that approached GoodWe's booth, referred to the great potential of inverters such as the SMT and MT for large C&I projects, that now are starting to become very common in that country. The customers also saw on the ET inverter a very good fit for those isolated areas of Ukraine where the power supply, due to various reasons, tends to be less stable or simply because it helps users to manage in a better way their electricity consumption.
The relationship between GoodWe and Ukraine is thus deepening and the company will keep working hard to remain close to the local market, which now can be better served from GoodWe's GMBH team, based in Germany.
