Schneider Electric Solar Business, a global leader in solutions for the solar industry, is pleased to announce that their Conext Core XC-NA ES (Energy Storage) Inverter is now CSA certified to UL1741 and CSA C22.2 no. 107.1, making it one of the first high power bidirectional inverters suitable for use in the North American market.
Schneider Electric unveiled the Conext Core XC ES earlier this year at Intersolar EU in Munich, Germany. The new Conext Core XC-NA ES central inverter for energy storage applications is built for grid-tie operations to address the needs of the North American storage market, and is based on the proven Conext Core XC-NA PV inverter.
Its high efficiency (peak 98.6%) and fast response time makes it suitable for a variety of utility scale energy storage applications including ancillary services, renewable smoothing and firming, energy shifting, peak shaving, and electricity rate optimization. The Conext Core XC-NA ES is also available as an integrated solution and compatible with Schneider Electric’s monitoring and control system, Conext Control.
“We are thrilled about our CSA Certification for the Conext Core XC-NA ES inverter,” said Arnaud Cantin, VP of the Power Plants Line of Business for the Solar Business of Schneider Electric. “The flexible features of our energy storage inverter make it suitable to address grid-interactive requirements in Puerto Rico and the USA, including Hawaii. In addition, it is compatible with a variety of advanced battery storage chemistries, including li-ion, flow, molten salt, aqueous sodium, and aqueous lead acid, making it a flexible option for different energy storage projects.”
