PV Power Plants: Reducing Investment Costs, Sharing Risk

In the competition with conventional energy carriers, solar power prices are falling dramatically. It is a difficult situation for project developers and investors who install and operate large PV power plants. In tenders and auctions for new power generation capacities, they are awarded contracts only if they guarantee very low prices and high reliability in the supply of electricity. To support them in this, an international team has developed the SMA Profit+ Solution.

Sunny Design Pro: Cross-Sector Energy System Planning

Whether for heating, cooling or running electrical machinery and appliances, a whole range of components are involved in the consumption of energy both in factories and inside your own four walls. The same applies to the generation of energy with heat pumps, CHP plants or a PV system. Other components include battery storage systems, which store energy that can be drawn upon as and when required. Imagine if you could simulate and calculate in advance a complex system of generators and loads from different energy sectors.
