Australian energy storage specialist Redflow Limited has welcomed news that Victron Energy’s MultiGrid 48/3000 battery inverter is now approved for connection to the Australian electricity grid.
The MultiGrid 48/3000 is a version of Victron’s popular MultiPlus 48/3000 inverter enhanced to meet the AS/NZS4777.2:2015 standard for grid connection of energy systems via battery inverters. The Victron MultiGrid 48/3000 inverter is now listed on the Clean Energy Council website at http://www.solaraccreditation.com.au/products/inverters/approved-inverters.html#searchResults.
ASX-listed Redflow (ASX:RFX) produces Australia’s unique ZCell zinc-bromine flow battery which works with a range of battery inverters including Victron, Selectronic, Redback and GoodWe.
Redflow’s Simon Hackett said the availability of the Victron MultiGrid 48/3000 inverter for grid-connected battery systems was good news for consumers. “Victron inverters are easy to configure, they work beautifully with ZCell and they are competitively priced,” he said. “Victron inverters have proved popular with ZCell customers who install off-grid energy storage systems, so AS4777.2 approval makes these inverters available to a much larger market. Victron inverters integrate easily with single-battery ZCell systems and are fully compatible with all major brands of AC solar inverters. This certification builds on the strength of the Victron product line in off-grid scenarios where it has a long pedigree in Australia.”
Founded in The Netherlands in 1975, Victron Energy https://www.victronenergy.com/ built a strong international reputation for its automotive and marine battery inverters. The privately owned company recently entered the solar PV market, leveraging its experience to build robust and reliable off-grid battery inverters which are now certified for use with grid-connected hybrid energy storage systems.
Victron’s Area Manager for Oceania Margreet Leeftink said Victron had sought AS4777.2 certification for the MultiGrid 48/3000 to meet customer demand. “We have an increasing number of customers, in Australia and overseas, who wanted to use Victron inverters with grid-connected systems,” she said.
“This is just our first grid-ready model. We are planning to progressively release AS4777-compliant models throughout our battery inverter range during the rest of this year.”
