1144 castle church – 1671 orphanage – 1848 windmill – 2018 hybrid mass storage: Most of the sites in Varel, a city in Lower Saxony, were built some centuries ago. But this year another one joined them: An intelligent battery mass storage that stabilizes the utility grid and intermediately stores excess energy from renewable energy sources until it is needed. And everyone benefits from this.

Factories located far away from utility grids depend on electricity supplied by diesel generators. For financial reasons, operators often rely on what is referred to as hybrid supply, i.e., a combination of a diesel system and PV system. The core element of the PV-diesel hybrid solution is the SMA Fuel Save Controller. It regulates the electricity supply to ensure that priority is given to cost-effective solar energy.
E-mobility is an important milestone of the energy transition. The majority of car manufacturers already have electric models in their...
An area of two million square meters, 108,000 metric tons of CO2 saved each year and clean energy for more than 50,000 households: the Dominican Republic is now home to the largest PV power plant in the Caribbean. Besides President Danilo Medina Sanchez and other VIPs, Patrick Thomas from SMA was also a guest at the official opening. He believes that solar energy holds great opportunities for the country.
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.
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. Read here about what was happening at our booth.
