Driving under electric power is already more cost-effective than gasoline-fueled vehicles, says Lisa Spangenberg. As an expert in charging technology, she knows exactly where momentum of the energy transition on the road is still lacking. She also explains why e-mobility is becoming more and more fun.
Since its launch in 2017, the Sunny Tripower CORE1, the first freestanding string inverter, has proven its value with installers for commercial megawatt projects. This is what Serge Communal, Technical Expert and Trainer at the SMA Solar Academy, observed. In daily contact with our (partner) installers, he accompanies them and advises them on technical questions relating to large rooftop projects. In this article, he explains why installers particularly appreciate CORE1.
Chocolate and the sun are actually not a good combination, but the La Ronda chocolate factory in Dubai proves the two can go together very well. The factory is now relying on solar power to manufacture its speciality "Chocodates." The goal is to produce the Chocodates with a zero-carbon footprint.
SMA is looking for PV pioneers who laid the foundation for a sustainable, decentralized energy supply with their PV systems many years ago. With their enthusiasm for photovoltaics, they paved the way for today’s energy transition. All PV system operators who installed an SMA solar inverter or battery inverter in the early years of photovoltaics and are still producing solar power today can participate in the photo campaign. SMA will be giving away 15 solar outdoor packages. The closing date for all entries is December 31, 2020.
