No company alone can master the complexity resulting from the decentralization and digitalization of the energy supply. Close cooperation among specialists from different fields is vital for creating a sustainable, reliable, low-cost and highly convenient energy supply.
A political consensus at the international level is still a long time coming despite the great urgency for effective climate protection. We should therefore now assume more national responsibility and quickly introduce a carbon tax. Other countries such as Great Britain, Sweden and Switzerland have long since done so.
Holistic energy monitoring for photovoltaics, diesel gensets, hydropower, CHP & Co.: This tech tip shows how to incorporate a Modbus TCP energy meter into your system with SMA Data Manager M powered by ennexOS.
Centralized or decentralized? Which design is best suited for large-scale solar systems? Answers can be found in a new whitepaper.
Solar system lowers energy costs and promotes environmental goals: Sunny Tripower CORE1 solar inverter from SMA is easy to install on a flat roof.
It’s been a year since the residents of the Efficiency House Plus homes in Hügelshart, Germany, moved in. They have already experienced one hot summer and their first winter. So how have these innovative, low-energy homes featuring their own PV systems, battery-storage systems and heat pumps fared during this time?
Invest and keep operating, or dismantle it? Ideally, this is a question that operators of PV power plants only have to ask when a plant is nearing the end of its planned productivity period.
The European elections once again made it clear that climate protection is becoming a central issue for more and more people Even after the elections, effective countermeasures by politicians are not yet in sight. This means that it is all the more important that companies take the initiative.
With Yammer, we have launched an enterprise social network (ESN) at SMA. This means that we use not only e-mail, chat functions and the telephone but also communities to discuss job-related issues within the company. A workshop with our Yammer admins and community manager Katharina Krentz from Bosch identified additional potential for lively communities.
Regular maintenance of large central inverters is important to ensure maximum efficiency and long-term profitability of the entire PV project. In order to make preventive maintenance work and acute corrections to individual components as easy as possible, SMA presented a new app for electricians at Intersolar 2019. (Video)
