Off-Grid Avocados Powered by SMA and Tesvolt

Avocados are more popular than ever as a healthy superfood. The green fruits are demanding when cultivated. The trees, which grow only in hot climates, need a lot of water — but this is often difficult to obtain, especially in warm regions. This plantation in Australia has been completely off-grid for 660 days.

Five Reasons Integrated Energy Is So Important

Integrated energy is considered a key technology for the energy transition. It combines the individual electricity, heat and mobility energy sectors and thus ensures efficient use of renewable energy. This is the only way to achieve decarbonization of the global economy. With the new opportunities provided by digitalization, integrated energy is paving the way for Energy Supply 4.0.

Sunny Design Pro: Cross-Sector Energy System Planning

Whether for heating, cooling or running electrical machinery and appliances, a whole range of components are involved in the consumption of energy both in factories and inside your own four walls. The same applies to the generation of energy with heat pumps, CHP plants or a PV system. Other components include battery storage systems, which store energy that can be drawn upon as and when required. Imagine if you could simulate and calculate in advance a complex system of generators and loads from different energy sectors.

SMA Highlights of Intersolar Europe 2018

This year, Intersolar Europe welcomed more than 50,000 visitors. On each of the days, thousands of visitors scrambled to the SMA trade fair booth. There, they learned about the easy integration of storage systems into energy systems, intelligent energy management and digital solutions for the modern energy world.
