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!

Warum es sich lohnt, das PV-Kraftwerk zu modernisieren

How modernizing your PV power plant pays off

When the inverter’s service life suddenly came to an end, low performance was threatening the profitability of Guntram Grieseler’s solar power plant. He decided to modernize his plant with innovative SMA string inverter technology. As a result, Guntram Grieseler’s plant is now producing even more energy than before. Here’s how it was done.

COP 26: Again not a big hit

COP 26: Again not a big hit

Even after the end of the UN Climate Change Conference, we are still a long way from achieving the 1.5°C target that is urgently needed if we are to avoid the most devastating effects of the global climate crisis. According to calculations by the IEA, even if all the pledges made in Glasgow are actually kept, which is by no means certain, the Earth will still heat up by at least 1.8°C. That is clearly too much. But even though the results of COP26 are disappointing, there was also progress in some areas.

COP26 – die letzte Chance

COP26 – The Last Chance

It has been six years since the world’s nations agreed to limit man-made global warming to significantly below 2 °C in the landmark Paris Agreement. Since then, there have been many announcements and promises. But we are still waiting for concrete steps and effective measures to curb the climate crisis. It is crucial that COP26, the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow next week, finally brings a breakthrough. Before it is too late.

After the parliamentary elections: drive climate protection forward, strengthen industry

Germany voted. The exploratory talks regarding the formation of a new German Federal Government are already ramping up. The demonstrations by the Fridays for Future movement in which more than 600,000 people participated in 470 locations last Friday impressively underlined once more that climate policy must occupy a central role in the negotiations. If the fight against the climate crisis is to be effective, the new Federal Government must not simply settle for “more of the same.” We need faster and far more substantial expansion of renewable energy sources.
