French inverter specialist Imeon Energy has announced plans to open a Melbourne service center, one year after the successful introduction of its products to the country.
Imeon produces hybrid inverters for the residential solar+storage market. The inverters are compatible with off-grid, on grid, smart grid and backup configurations. This allows users to manage their self-consumption and storage of energy, as well as providing AI functions which allow the software to ‘predict, anticipate and learn’, which ‘allows it to improve its overall performance and effortlessly integrate feature updates.
Residential storage has not yet fully taken off – taking November 2017 as an example, of 7944 small-scale generation systems installed that month, just 164 had a concurrent battery installation, according to data from the clean energy regulator. More customers however, are making the retroactive decision to add solar to their rooftop solar setup, and Imeon is the latest of several international players in this market to set up shop in Australia.
In 2017, battery specialists Senec from Germany and BYD from China made the move Down Under, joining storage stalwarts sonnen, LG Chem and Enphase, all of which are well established names already.
