SENEC solar battery wins 2020 New Product Innovation award



Australian first for hybrid solar battery from SENEC

With scores of accolades and awards for previous models, the new SENEC.Home V3 Hybrid solar battery storage system has achieved an Australian first: the first hybrid solar battery to win an award.

The SENEC.Home V3 Hybrid battery is an ABA100 Winner for New Product Innovation in The Australian Brand Awards 2020. This award recognises innovative consumer products that offer a point of difference from their competitors.

SENEC is one of the world’s most popular brands for innovative energy and storage solutions. Following a decade of domestic success, SENEC established in Australia three years ago, becoming a key focus for the German manufacturer.

Having established a retail network throughout the country, SENEC is now poised to become a household name in one of the world’s fastest growing storage markets.

With more than 40,000 SENEC battery systems installed worldwide, SENEC has been repeatedly honoured as a top PV brand for power storage and recently received a prestigious 2020 German Excellence Award.

While SENEC is at the forefront of energy innovation, it is also leading the way in peer-to-peer trading, EV recharging and cloud technology. Plus, for all of the installed batteries worldwide, they have zero critical failures making them also one of the safest.

A ‘My SENEC Portal’ monitors the performance of the system installed giving SENEC installers and the manufacturer detailed backend status updates every five minutes.

The SENEC.App enables users to take control of their power supply, view the performance of their entire system including solar production, and allows them to track their savings as they go.

Patrick Duignan, general manager of SENEC Australia, said one of the innovative features of the SENEC.Home V3 Hybrid is the combination of a PV and battery inverter in one single, easy-to-install system.

“The development of this new hybrid inverter is testament to the continuous improvement process leading to the latest transformerless inverter design that delivers high efficiency. 

“The DC-power from the PV panels is converted to DC-power directly by using a highly-efficient bidirectional DC/DC converter. By using a transformerless inverter to convert the energy from PV or battery to AC-power to compensate the house load, we have significantly increased efficiency thereby eliminating typical transformer losses such as copper and eddy current.

“It is these innovations that no doubt contributed to SENEC winning the ABA New Product Innovation Award,” Duignan added.

The SENEC.Home V3 Hybrid solar battery offers home owners extensive benefits including 90 per cent solar power self-sufficiency, even in blackouts. The combined photovoltaic inverter and battery inverter of this model delivers savings of approximately $3,000 per installation due to its simplified installation and design aggregation.

The V3 comes with a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty and an optional extended 20-year warranty. This is expected to be a major impetus for millions of homeowners with rooftop solar to take the next logical step and add a battery.
