Der Moment, der das Leben der Dorfbewohner in Mthembanji veränderte, kam in einem 20-Fuss-Container: Im Juli 2020 startete das afrikanische Dorf ein solares 12-kWp-Mikronetz. Damit konnten 60 Haushalte und Kleinunternehmen erstmals elektrisches Licht einschalten.
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.
The UK Solar Energy industry is seeing a huge swing in the direction of Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), recently we discussed this with SMA UK’s client Aniron Renewables’ Sesh Diu and Ian Howat.
Solar power production is finally up and running again at full capacity in West Murray, Australia. The generation caps, which were imposed on five PV power plants over a period of seven months, have now been lifted. And this is all thanks to an innovative control software installed on all the inverters in the PV farms. The software was developed by various experts including SMA’s Christian Hardt and Daniel Premm, who worked around the clock to get the job done.
Thanks to the SMA forecast-based battery charging feature, PV system operators can generate higher PV yields and also lengthen the calendar service life of batteries. With our checklist, you can configure your system in Sunny Portal accordingly, ensuring that no valuable solar power is lost in the future while also extending the service life of your devices.
More than 53 million metric tons of electronic waste were accumulated worldwide in 2019. That is equivalent to 100 times the weight of the world’s tallest skyscraper, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. This is one consequence of rising consumption, the gradual digitalization of our lifestyles and the diminishing service lives of electrical appliances. But besides materials that are harmful to our health and the environment, electronic waste also contains valuable raw materials that can be sustainably reused.
In the sunny Southwest, students spending their secondary education years at the Albuquerque Academy in Albuquerque, New Mexico follow a school philosophy of achieving knowledge that is actionable. This private college preparatory school offers grades 6 through 12 programs that focus on connecting to the natural world. It is in the spirit of preserving the environment and cultivating innovation that the school relies on solar power.
Bernhard Voll wants nothing less than to make a lasting improvement to people’s lives with PV systems. So it’s useful that the SMA expert for PV power plants has a lot of experience and knows all the pitfalls in the implementation of PV projects. Besides this, he is calling for a look at other fields of application to make more diverse use of inverters. He already has some specific ideas.
Emerging economies hold huge potential for the global energy transition. In countries like Ghana and Vietnam, energy demand is rapidly increasing; the source of this power will be decisive in our ability to limit climate change. But in markets that many investors still see as unknown, how can we ensure that renewable energy projects get the funding they need? Trusted technology plays a crucial role.
