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?
“No more fossil fuels on this island.” These were the words of Hollywood legend Marlon Brando. Since April 2019, the luxury private resort on the island of Tetiaroa in the South Pacific has been receiving a near around-the-clock supply of solar power.

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.
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.

Diesel generators that ran for 12 hours a day powered the school located on Lasqueti Island in British Columbia, Canada, from its construction in 1953 until 2016, when a community effort turned a solar dream into reality.
Energy management systems in companies in Nicaragua prevent solar power from finding its way into the utility grid. In this Central American country, no specifications have been defined for the grid feed-in of self-generated electricity. Grid operators fear that the electricity grids could collapse under the strain. For ECAMI S.A., a company that plans and builds renewable energy systems, SMA Data Manager M powered by ennexOS was just what it needed.
1144 castle church – 1671 orphanage – 1848 windmill – 2018 hybrid mass storage: Most of the sites in Varel, a city in Lower Saxony, were built some centuries ago. But this year another one joined them: An intelligent battery mass storage that stabilizes the utility grid and intermediately stores excess energy from renewable energy sources until it is needed. And everyone benefits from this.
The iconic, state-of-the art Mary Pickford Theatre in Cathedral City, California, now includes a self-sustaining renewable energy plant with SMA inverters.
A hotel, a cinema, a health and fitness center and numerous shops and restaurants: These amenities are spread over around 52,000 square meters in Namibia’s largest shopping mall. They are all voracious consumers of energy and are now benefiting from the installation of a PV system with 43 SMA inverters.
