Europe Goes Solar Eh? Canadian Solar (CSIQ) To Present EP Cube for Residential Energy Storage at Intersolar in Munich

Canadian Solar Inc. (CSIQ) today announced that it will unveil its new three-phase EP Cube and EP Cube Twin Peak at Intersolar in Munich, Germany, from June 19-21, 2024. This expansion of the EP Cube residential energy storage line aims to boost home storage adoption across Europe, meeting diverse residential needs.

The three-phase EP Cube offers a maximum output power of 12 kVa, ensuring continuous operation of high-power electrical appliances during grid outages. The new EP Cube Twin Peak adds scalable and customizable options, with capacities ranging from 10 kWh to 60 kWh, compatible with both retrofit and newly installed PV systems. This flexibility allows homeowners to tailor their energy storage solutions to their exact needs. Equipped with a hybrid inverter, the EP Cube supports high-spec solar panels with a maximum of 24 kWp and up to 4 MPPT inputs, enhancing solar energy storage efficiency.

EP Cube prioritizes safety with lithium-iron-phosphate (LFP) batteries known for their excellent thermal and chemical stability. The battery system has passed IEC certification and is housed in an IP67-rated enclosure. At Canadian Solar’s exhibit, visitors can see a coffee brewing demonstration powered by an EP Cube submerged in about two feet of water, demonstrating the EP Cube’s superior performance under extreme conditions. This setup represents the EP Cube’s wet soaking test and is not indicative of standard installation practices.

Numerous EP Cube installations have already been completed in Europe, and the EP Cube is now available to customers in Germany, Spain, Italy, and the UK through Canadian Solar’s trusted network of distributors.
