ZCell and GoodWe


Home storage of power generated from solar cells is the next big thing in the electricity market. Australia battery maker Redflow is working to certify the most used inverters in Australia.

It has announced that GoodWe's ES inverter has been certified, joining Victron Energy, Redback, and Selectronic inverters.

Redflow undertook extensive testing at its Adelaide-based battery lab to ensure ZCell can work quickly and easily with the GoodWe ES Series inverter charger, a process simplified by the purpose-built ZCell battery management system (BMS).

Redflow chief exectuive Simon Hackett, who oversaw the inverter verification process, said the GoodWe inverter worked perfectly with ZCell. “Certifying the GoodWe inverter to work with ZCell is part of our commitment to making sure that ZCell is a quick and easy battery to deploy,” he said.

The GoodWe ES Series bi-directional energy storage inverter works with both On-grid and off-grid photovoltaic (PV) systems, intelligently controlling the flow of energy. During the day, solar panels generate electricity for use by the house, charging the battery or feeding into the grid. ZCell can release stored energy when needed at night. Additionally, the power grid can also charge ZCell via the inverter when the sun does not shine.

GoodWe Power Supply Technology general manager Min Huang said GoodWe was happy to expand the range of batteries that work with its inverters. “We look forward to seeing many customers using Redflow’s ZCell flow battery with our ES series inverter/charger products,” he said. “We see ZCell as a great new way to store energy with significant technical advantages compared to other battery types."
