SMA Exhibiting at Intersolar 2017

Intersolar began in Pforzheim in 1991 as a small but dignified exhibition with a total of five (!) exhibitors, moved to Freiburg in 2000 and has been held in Munich since 2007. The leading international trade fair for the solar industry, with offshoots in North and South America, India and the Middle East, attracts tens of thousands of visitors annually. It will open its doors in Munich again this year on May 31 with the latest trends, exciting developments and pioneering technologies. Over the three days, more than 40,000 visitors are expected to visit approximately 1,200 exhibitors to learn about photovoltaics, energy storage and renewable heating, as well as products and solutions from the field of smart renewable energy.


SMA will be meeting them at booth B3.210 in hall 3. Our product managers will introduce you to a few of the exhibition’s highlights. Further you’ll get a first impression of the new SMA Energy Solutions.

Reduces installation costs – stands on its own

“With the new Sunny Tripower CORE1, SMA is proving its leadership in innovation once again. With this 50 kW inverter for commercial systems, we are setting new standards in installations on flat roofs and ground surfaces. The freestanding inverter allows a commercial system to be installed up to 60% more quickly and simultaneously reduces the total cost of ownership considerably. Therefore, the CORE1 has also been nominated for the Intersolar Award.”



3. Sunny Highpower PEAK1

Combined benefits – central installation with string inverters

“This inverter is the successor to the Sunny Tripower 60 and is based on the system concept featuring the central installation of string inverters in large industrial and ground-based PV systems. With 75 kW of power, the Sunny Highpower Peak1 is ideal for use in PV power plants. Thanks to this system concept, customers have maximum flexibility in system design – combined with significant cost savings.”



4. MVPS 5500SC-EV

For PV power plants worldwide – because complete is simply a good thing

“The 5500SC-EV Medium Voltage Power Station is a fully integrated, turnkey solution in ideal block size for large-scale PV power plants. Building on the tried and tested MVPS container technology, SMA has now developed the optimal solution for large-scale PV power plants, in a compact, 40-foot format with all components in one container. Inverter, medium-voltage transformer and switchgear are perfectly matched and type-tested for maximum system safety at minimal cost.”

Battery power times three – ideal for all PV storage systems in the residential sector

“With the new multi-string battery inverters, it is possible for the first time to connect up to three different high-voltage batteries. For connecting larger batteries, the three DC inputs can also be connected in parallel. Uniquely, all new Sunny Boy Storage inverters offer integrated emergency power. In addition, the system can be expanded to supply the entire household with fully automated automatic grid transfer switch. Thanks to AC coupling with proven qualities, the new Sunny Boy Storage is ideally suited to new and retrofit systems, for all households with annual electricity consumption of 3,000 to 12,000 kWh and for PV systems from 3 to 12 kWp.”
