FREMONT, Calif., Oct. 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enphase Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: ENPH), a global energy technology company and the world's leading supplier of microinverter-based solar and battery systems, today announced that it has entered the solar markets in Sweden and Denmark through an expanded agreement with German-based climate tech startup 1KOMMA5° to offer Enphase® Energy Systems™, powered by IQ8™ Microinverters and IQ™ Batteries. Enphase and 1KOMMA5° had previously entered into a strategic agreement to extend Enphase’s footprint in Germany and other European markets in 2022.
“Enphase has established itself as a leader in home energy management across Europe, and we are thrilled that 1KOMMA5° will now offer Enphase’s industry-leading IQ8 Microinverters and IQ Batteries in Sweden and Denmark,” said Jannik Schall, chief product officer and co-founder of 1KOMMA5°. “The Enphase devices will be seamlessly integrated into Heartbeat, our proprietary energy IoT system, and become part of our virtual power plant. The Enphase integration is a win-win-win, from reliability to safety to warranty.”
Enphase IQ8 Microinverters manage a continuous DC current of 14 amperes and are designed to support the latest higher-powered solar modules to maximize energy production. The three new microinverters – IQ8MC™, IQ8AC™, and IQ8HC™ – feature a peak output power of 330VA, 366VA, and 384VA, respectively, and are designed to seamlessly pair with a full range of solar modules up to 560W DC. All IQ8 Microinverters activated in Denmark and Sweden come with a 25-year limited warranty.
The Enphase Energy System with IQ Batteries offers configurations ranging from 3.5kWh to an aggregate 42kWh and can be upgraded throughout the lifetime of the system. Enphase delivers an enhanced solar-plus-battery solution which does not expose installers or homeowners to high-voltage DC. Enphase IQ Batteries feature Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) battery chemistry, which provides a long cycle life and smooth operation through excellent thermal stability. Enphase IQ Batteries accommodate over-the-air software upgrades for enhanced longevity and come with a 15-year limited warranty in select European countries, including Sweden and Denmark.
“1KOMMA5° has been a great partner and we’re excited to expand our relationship in two countries with tremendous renewable energy potential,” said Dave Ranhoff, chief commercial officer at Enphase Energy. “The rollout of IQ8 Microinverters and IQ Batteries will give homeowners resilient, reliable, and safer energy solutions, backed by a comprehensive warranty with full 24x7 customer support for an exceptional customer experience.”
