Refining the SMA Energy app in line with customer preferences

With the SMA Energy app, system operators always keep constant track of their PV system. They can monitor their system, control loads, or charge their electric car with self-generated electric current from the roof. Now a new update is available.

SMA EV Charger solaroptimiert laden

SMA EV Charger mobilizes surplus PV power and relieves the utility grid

The first 18 months of field experience with the charging solution SMA EV Charger have shown in Sunny Portal: more than half of the energy used for charging electric vehicles is provided by solar power from your own roof. It is no longer a secret that this allows you to be on the move in a particularly climate-neutral and cost-effective way. But did you know that it means you can even prevent expensive grid expansion and your contribution to the energy transition becomes even more valuable?

SMA Storage Solution vuelve a encender las luces en Taiwán

SMA Storage Solution turns the lights back on in Taiwan

On March 3, 2022, a serious power outage in Taiwan, happened. More than five million households and 500 industrial businesses were affected. Thanks to the SMA storage solution, however, they were quickly back on the grid and supplied with power. The example clearly shows the importance of storage solutions in grids with an increasing share of renewable energies.

In wenigen Klicks zu höheren Erträgen – Anlagenmodernisierung mit SunnyDesign

PV plant repowering made easy with Sunny Design

Improved performance, better availability of spare parts and use of the latest technologies as well as analysis and monitoring tools – there are many arguments in favor of modernizing existing PV power plants. However, the complexity of such a project scares many system operators off, but a repowering project does not have to be labor-intensive. The SunnyDesign web portal provides an easy way to create a modernization plan for your own PV power plant in just a few clicks.

At work in Uganda: stable power supply for school and hospital

When Dennis Halpape and Alexander Krug journeyed to East Africa for the first time with Kassel-based association TOGETHER – Hilfe für Uganda [Aid for Uganda]  to install a solar system twelve years ago, there was rarely any light to be found for many kilometers in every direction in the region of Kooki after sunset. Today, when it gets dark, there are significantly more lights on in the houses there.

Solar for Schools gets SMA’s Support

Solar for Schools gets SMA’s Support

Young people are key to the planet reaching its sustainability goals. So what could be better than installing solar panels on school rooftops? Schoolchildren can understand the technology involved; watch the installation of the equipment; and monitor the results. And, of course, the schools can reduce their carbon footprint.

Eco safari: refuel with sunlight instead of diesel fuel

The Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, Africa, is UNESCO World Heritage natural site and tourist magnet. Lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos and buffaloes still live in their natural habitat here. In order to preserve the natural environment, Tanganyika Expeditions has relied on photovoltaics for the operation of its accommodations and on e-mobility for the safaris.

Von der Sunny Portal- zur SMA Energy App: Das bringt der Wechsel

From Sunny Portal- to the SMA Energy app: Advantages of switching!

With more than 450,000 downloads, the SMA Energy App is well established in the market. Now after more than one year of parallel operation, the SMA Energy App has replaced the Sunny Portal App. Reason for doing so: After all, PV systems are becoming ever more complex, and the integration of storage and e-mobility is set to become standard. The SMA Energy App combines your private energy transition at home with the change to e-vehicles on the street. We will improve our SMA Energy App following your feedback!
