NX Fusion Plus: An Holistic Approach to DC-Coupled Storage

Monday, September 11
1:30 PM - 2:00 PM
Location: Storage Central: Booth 1235

We developed NX Fusion Plus as a fully integrated system to efficiently and cost-effectively generate, store, and dispatch energy for customers with long-duration applications. By integrating a 30-year, less than 0.1%/yr degradation DC-coupled Vanadium flow battery (VFB) with our NX Horizon single-axis tracker and advanced data acquisition & control technology, the solution offers the lowest LCOE for energy-on-demand with industry-leading system efficiencies.
Unique to NX Fusion Plus is the distributed architecture of both tracker and battery. NEXTracker provides trackers in modular, independent rows, while Avalon's VFB ships wet and fully integrated, such that it is a true drop-in-place, plug-and-play system architecture that can scale from behind-the-meter C&I systems typical of the California agricultural sector, all the way through to global utility scale projects. Unique amongst PV and storage systems, NX Fusion Plus installs rapidly, has very long life with minimal degradation, and leading LCOE for long duration applications. We invite you to come hear NEXTracker CTO Alex Au and Storage Integration Director, Josh Weiner discuss this application from 1:30-2pm on Sept. 11 @ SPI 2017.

Alex Au


Alex Au leads NEXTracker’s technology and engineering, driving the creation of the NEXTracker120 and SPT products and now the NX Horizon and NX Fusion. The NEXTracker co-founder has over 13 years of PV product development experience, ranging from residential to utility scale applications. As director of advanced technology R&D at Akeena Solar, he helped to invent the Andalay AC module. At SPG Solar he led the SunSeeker G3.2 tracker design, reducing cost by more than 30% compared to previous versions. Au is listed as the sole inventor for the first PV tracker designed to stow for high wind speeds up to 155 mph, and he holds design patents on the Andalay rack and framing, the SunSeeker tracker, and the NEXTrackerSPT. He studied mechanical engineering at California State Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo.
