Comprehensive Energy Solutions

At the forefront of Sigenergy’s innovation is the SigenStor, the world’s first 5-in-1 energy storage system. Unveiled at Solar & Storage Live 2023, SigenStor integrates a Battery PCS, Battery Pack, EV DC Charger, PV Inverter, and EMS into a single unit. Setting new standards in the industry, offering versatility and scalability, catering to various needs with simplicity and safety at its core.

The Sigenstor system is a 5-in-One Home Energy Solution. It starts with the
Sigen Energy Controller, which manages solar and energy storage systems. The system also includes the Sigen EV DC Charging module for fast, green EV charging and supports up to six stackable battery modules, offering an energy capacity range from 5 to 48 kWh. With self-guiding pin connectors between modules, the system allows for simple stacking without field wiring, significantly reducing installation time and effort.

Sigenergy provides four different configurations for the Sigenstor:

  1. Solar + Storage + Charging: Produce, store, charge, and use green energy flexibly.

  2. Solar + Storage: Generate, store, and use green energy for your home.

  3. Storage Only: Optimise utility bills by leveraging variable electricity prices.

  4. Backup / Off-grid: Ensure a reliable green energy supply even during power outages.

With self-guiding pin connectors between modules, the system allows for simple stacking without field wiring, significantly reducing installation time and effort. The mySigen App facilitates a quick and efficient setup process, auto-networking, and scanning to ensure all components are ready within less than 10 minutes. The system's smart features enable self-detection and self-evolution to optimise energy usage and savings. 

Sigenergy leads the way in AI innovation with the mySigen App, a self-developed application that offers users system visibility and interactive, AI-driven smart features. Powered by GPT-4, the app is adept at answering questions and troubleshooting issues. The mySigen App facilitates a quick and efficient setup process, auto-networking, and scanning to ensure all components are ready within less than 10 minutes.
