Huawei out to drive use of clean, reliable new energy systems for a greener future

Huawei has set out on a course to drive green and sustainable development in the global PV industry. Towards this end the firm mobilized a diverse assembly of 200 industry leaders, for an unprecedented industry summit in Kenya and unveiled its revolutionary Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) solutions.

“As the world moves toward carbon neutrality, constructing a new energy system is a shared vision. Every organization is seeking for better energy experiences, as well as low-carbon production and life through renewable energy applications,” said Charles Yang, the Senior VP of Huawei and President of Global Marketing, Sales and Services, Huawei Digital Power.

For large-scale energy storage, Huawei is spotlighting its innovation to drive green and sustainable development in the global PV industry. The firm said it stands ready to embark on extensive collaborations with global partners and customers, fueling continuous innovation and the evolution of remarkably competitive Smart PV+ESS products and solutions.

The conference aimed to foster collaboration and knowledge-sharing around innovative energy storage technologies and forward-thinking applications. The event served as a collaborative platform to drive the energy industry forward towards a more robust and sustainable future, with BESS technology taking center stage, positioning Africa and the industry with a bright future on this transformative journey.

Yang added that the challenges currently facing the industry with low equipment reliability and property safety risks point to Huawei’s positioning as a ‘technology product company’ that mitigates these challenges with increased investment in R&D and continuous innovation.

Huawei, he noted, is positioned as a technology & product company, dedicated to forging a greener future and safeguarding the interests of its customers.  By pioneering efficient energy storage solutions and actively addressing the challenges of grid stability amidst renewable integration, Huawei is determined to propel the industry towards a more resilient and eco-conscious future.

John Van Zuylen, CEO of AFSIA Solar, in his remarks, gave a very comprehensive overview of the trends and opportunities in the solar industries. He mentioned that “Over the years we have seen so many projects being commissioned on weak grids, and over the years we have seen the growth and an opportunity for us in the industry to tap into, and these projects are taking part all over Africa” He added that: “More renewable energy on the grids requires more grid stabilization, which is a great opportunity for not just storage, but large-scale storage solutions.”

Ussama Rai, Director of PV & BESS Service Solution, highlighted global trends driving utility scale BESS adoption, emphasizing cost savings of up to 40% achievable through prefabricated design. Muhammed Seedat, Senior PV Solution Manager for Sub-Saharan Africa, emphasized the rise of renewable energy and Huawei’s comprehensive PV and ESS solution, promising seamless synergy and hassle-free post-sales services for customers.

“Unified by our vision, our shared goal is to propel green PV to the forefront, establishing it as the paramount energy source for residences and enterprises alike. Through these concerted efforts, we are not only building a sustainable future but also empowering communities worldwide with resilient and eco-friendly energy solutions,” concluded Yang.
