With the Sunny Boy Storage range of battery inverters, you can add battery storage to either a single phase or a three-phase PV system. Households in Australia are billed for their energy using net metering across all three phases of the grid. That means, the net energy purchased across all three-phases is what is billed, and it does not matter how energy is distributed across the phases.
It’s not always obvious how to choose the size of the battery (kWh) or the rating of the battery inverter (kW). These choices, along with your specific household energy usage, have a large influence on the cost and benefit of a new battery storage system. In this blog, we will show you examples from SunnyDesignWeb.com that illustrate the effect of different battery and inverter combinations for a typical household.
The new Seethalerhütte is at an altitude of nearly 3,000 meters in the glacier region of Dachsteingebirge, Austria. A sustainable concept and logistic expertise was required to create a suitable energy supply.
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.
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.
Charging your electric vehicle at home helps you save time and money— especially when the charging process is intelligently integrated into your home energy system. At the 3rd E-Mobility Plugfest at the Audi plant in Brussels, communication between the charging infrastructure and other energy generators and consumers was put to the test.
(Update 4/2/2019 – multibattery functionality) Starting in June, the powerful SMA battery inverter Sunny Boy Storage 3.7/5.0/6.0 for private homes...
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.
