All IoT Platform For Energy Management ennexOS Updates at a Glance

Integrated energy planning is a hot topic at the moment, and the ennexOS IoT platform for energy management combines individual energy sectors to create one efficient overall system. We explain how commercial PV system operators can benefit from this. We make regular updates to flexibly adapt ennexOS to current market and customer requirements. We present the latest functions here.

Short-Term Weather Forecasts Save Additional Diesel Power in PV-Diesel Hybrid Systems

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.

ennexOS: How Does SMA’s Energy Management Platform Work?

More and more companies and private households are discovering energy management to reduce their energy costs, to become more independent from electric utility companies and to secure a sustainable energy supply at the same time. For effective energy management, all energy sectors must be linked and their control optimized. Another important factor is the direct integration into the electricity market. To easily implement this, SMA has developed ennexOS. What is the IoT platform for energy management able to do and how does it work?

Reducing Costs and Protecting the Environment: How Does Energy Management Work?

Energy costs are a serious issue for companies because prices for electricity, oil and gas are continuing to rise. It is therefore becoming increasingly important to use energy efficiently for lighting, machinery, equipment, heating, cooling and air conditioning. This not only saves money but also is good for the environment and the company’s image. The best way to achieve the highest possible energy efficiency within the company is focused energy management.

Why maintenance of PV power plants is so important

PV power plants have to reliably provide electrical energy over decades. If the components within the power plant do not work properly, the plant cannot provide maximum energy yield. That is why regular maintenance is indispensable. In regular trainings at SMA, electricians and plant owners can acquire the necessary knowledge.

E-Mobility: Sustainably Shaping the Transformation in Transportation

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.
