Over the past two decades, Huawei has brought ubiquitous connectivity into Africa. In the future, Huawei will fully leverage the convergence advantages of digital and power electronics technologies in three scenarios: Utility, Commercial & Industrial (C&I), and Residential; bringing leading technologies and continuous innovation, lifecycle product safety, long-term and stable local operation to customers and partners.

Mr. Xia added, “Facing the booming market prospects of the PV industry, Huawei Digital Power will continue to deepen its ecological strategy, adhering to the principles of "shared benefits as the bridge, integrity as the foundation, and rules as the guarantee".” Huawei will establish a partnership system based on "trust, profit, simplicity, and growth," growing together with partners and winning in the new era of Digital Power.

At the summit, Huawei also showcased its new C&I 150KTL inverter, which will bring improved energy yields, simplified delivery, and enhanced O&M experiences to C&I customers. For residential users, Huawei will release the new LUNA2000-7KWH S1 product, which provides a premium backup experience in terms of device safety, aesthetic design, and power consumption.

Alongside partners from South Africa, Kenya, and other countries, Huawei also revealed the impressive Q1 2024 sales numbers for its 100KTL, 200MWh, and 2MWh products.
