September 18, 2015 – The Conext Core XC-NA ES (Energy Storage) Inverter from Schneider Electric Solar Business is now CSA certified to UL1741 and CSA C22.2 no. 107.1, making it one of the first high-power, bidirectional inverters suitable for use in the North American market, according to the company.

This Conext Core is built for grid-tie operations to address the needs of the North American storage market, and is based on the Conext Core XC-NA PV inverter.

Its high-efficiency (peak 98.6%) and fast response time makes it suitable for a variety of utility scale energy storage applications including ancillary services, renewable smoothing and firming, energy shifting, peak shaving, and electricity rate optimization, Schneider Electric said. The Conext Core XC-NA ES is also available as an integrated solution and compatible with Schneider Electric’s monitoring and control system, Conext Control.
