Enphase Energy, Inc a global energy technology company and the world's leading supplier of microinverter-based solar and battery systems, announced today that it has started shipping IQ™ Batteries to customers in France, the Netherlands, and Switzerland, further expanding the product’s availability in the European market.
SolarPower Europe released its latest European Market Outlook for residential battery storage and is predicting significant growth across the continent in the coming years. The report predicts up to 11 GWh of residential battery storage could be installed by the end of 2026, which is nearly 5x growth from the 2.3 GWh installed in 2021. Additionally, the Netherlands, France, and Switzerland have all set aggressive clean energy targets to help drive this transition.
“We love that Enphase IQ Batteries can be configured for the sizing of a large or small system, accommodating our customers’ unique clean energy needs,” said Julien Gouin, co-founder of SMART TO, an installer of Enphase products in France. “Enphase’s battery systems and easy-to-use mobile app will deliver world-class reliability, resilience, and control for French homeowners.”
