Fronius Storage Solutions Is Growing


In 2018, Fronius Solar Energy will be launching a new Fronius Energy
Package. This comprises an inverter, the Fronius Checkbox and a storage unit
from LG "“ the ideal solution for price- and quality-conscious system owners.
Fronius is also continuing its research in the field of energy sector
integration, and plans to commission a pilot system in which green hydrogen
will be generated from solar energy in the second quarter of 2018.

In order to make the vision of 24 hours of sun "“ a future in
which 100% of the world's energy needs are covered by renewable sources "“ a
reality, system owners must be able to store solar energy efficiently, thus
making it usable at any time. Fronius's range of storage units offers tailored
solutions that meet the specific needs of the customer. "We provide users with
a wide range of options and supply them with a system that meets their exact
requirements," explains Martin Hackl, Head of the Business Unit Solar Energy at
Fronius International GmbH. The Fronius Ohmpilot consumption regulator for hot
water preparation is an affordable first step into the Fronius world of storage
units. This intelligent energy management solution uses surplus energy to
activate and coordinate consumers such as heating elements, heat pumps or
infra-red heaters.

Fronius Energy Package upgraded with LG battery

To make storing solar energy even easier, Fronius will be
offering its Energy Package in combination with the LG Chem RESU H1 battery as
of this spring. This complete package is extremely cost-efficient compared to
other systems, with no compromises on operational reliability. The system will
be available almost everywhere in Europe and Australia.

Energy Package with Solar Battery offers a high degree of
modularity and a reliable emergency power mode

Already successfully established on the market, the Fronius
Energy Package with Fronius Solar Battery has a modular design and can be
easily upgraded as required. Operators of photovoltaic systems also benefit
from the reliable, three-phase emergency power mode, which supplies the
household with energy even in the event of a power failure.

Hydrogen opens up new possibilities

Hydrogen technology also plays a key role in making the
vision of 24 hours of sun a reality. This technology makes it possible to
further integrate the electricity, heat and mobility sectors and thus drive
forward the use of renewable energies and the associated decarbonisation of our
energy system. "We have already conducted intensive research in this field and
are developing suitable solutions," emphasises Thomas Ruehrlinger, Business Development
Hydrogen Solutions. Fronius is currently building a pilot system at its
premises in Thalheim in which green hydrogen will be generated from solar
energy. This will then be available for refuelling cars equipped with fuel
cells at the site. Furthermore, surplus hydrogen can be converted back into
electricity and heat, making seasonal storage possible. The use of such
infrastructure solutions will be particularly attractive to commercial
enterprises, businesses and municipalities in the future.

Outlook for the coming year

"We have a lot planned for 2018," concludes Head of the
Business Unit Martin Hackl. "In addition to expanding our range of storage
units to include the Fronius Energy Package with LG storage solution, we are
also working hard to ensure solar energy is used even more efficiently. In the
field of energy sector integration, in other words combining electricity, heat
and mobility, we are offering our customers comprehensive system solutions that
allow them to use their self-generated energy to the fullest extent possible."
With the Fronius Smart Meter and Fronius Solar.web, users also benefit from
clear system visualisation. This means that components can be better matched,
and the overall system can be made more energy-efficient. "Our research efforts
in the field of hydrogen and e-mobility complete our offering," adds
