Batteries are taking on an increasingly important role in decentralized energy systems and constitute the heart of off-grid systems. They can also be increasingly found in on-grid systems, where they can cut energy purchase costs by means of increased self-consumption or peak load shaving. Battery monitoring plays a key role here. After all, PV system operators want to know whether their systems are actually working as intended, because downtime costs money and causes hassle. That is why SMA is offering a comprehensive upgrade for battery analysis via ennexOS.

Was selbst meine Kollegen nicht von mir wissen: Als Teenager war ich Beifahrerin bei Orientierungsfahrten (Schnitzeljagd mit Auto) und habe immer die Pokale als beste weibliche und jüngste Teilnehmer nach Hause getragen – was nicht so schwierig war.

Approximately 1,000 people live in the village of Gutu in Nepal, about 800 kilometers away from the capital city of Kathmandu. There is no public electricity supply. Until recently, everybody shifted for himself: open fires to cook on and smoke in the house, a huge stock of candles or the hum of the diesel generator at the local metal processing company were a part of everyday life. Find out why the village inhabitants have been able to leave all this behind them.
In Australia, over 2 million households enjoy safe and clean energy from PV systems. Spread fears about PV safety are unfounded and used to sell add-on safety products. Comprehensive studies indicate existing PV systems are generally safe, fires are rare, and firefighters are still able to work safely.
The aim of PV system operators is to achieve the highest yield and most efficient operation. However, reality can be rather different. Some Distribution Network Operators (DNO’s) or local connection conditions for residential storage systems require a limitation on the maximum PV feed-in power at the grid-connection point. So, if a PV system produces too much energy, it has to be curtailed and the highly valuable resource, solar power, goes to waste. SMA’s forecast-based battery charging feature helps combat this.
You can incredibly efficiently reduce power consumption in your home using the Sunny Home Manager 2.0 and Edimax radio-controlled socket. The update makes the Edimax radio-controlled socket even more safe. Here you’ll learn why the update is important and what you need to know when updating.
Whether washing the dishes, doing the laundry in an eco-friendly way or heating and charging the e-car with solar power – we show you all electrical and thermal devices that you can use for you smart home.
People are becoming more and more mobile worldwide. A trend that not only presents considerable challenges for transportation planners, but also makes a significant contribution to climate change. How do we shape the sustainable and user-friendly mobility of the future? Annika Kunze, expert in e-mobility and energy solutions for supermarkets at SMA subsidiary coneva, presents her insights and forecasts.
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.
