ABB are about to release their new hybrid inverter featuring lithium ion batteries from Panasonic. Labelled REACT the Renewable Energy Accumulator and Conversion Technology unit will invert a standard PV system and store renewable energy for later use.
The unit will come with either 3.6 or 4.6kWhrs of battery capacity with an expected ten year lifespan. The solution is expandable and features web monitoring out of the box.
REACT is expected to hit Australian shores by late 2015 and will be available through Ecoelectric and other ABB partners.
