The share of renewable energies in the electricity supply is rising and regenerative power plants such as large PV power plants or battery-storage systems are increasingly coming to the fore in the energy industry. With the SMA Power Plant Manager, these decentralized energy systems do not only meet all the requirements of grid operators, but are also optimally prepared for new energy marketing models.
The SMA 360° app helps PV solar power professionals with their everyday work. That includes servicing. Thanks to the app's comprehensive service, customers see solar power professionals as solar experts, and they can thus successfully set themselves apart from competitors.
Professional support for solar power professionals in the fields of planning, operation and service. With the new SMA 360° app, solar power professionals will always have their digital universal tool at the ready.
PV system operators and installers receive fast support when they need it via our new SMA Online Service Center. You can use this to contact our Service team, look at the status of your service cases and access information on products, innovations and software updates.
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.
Over 800 million people in the world have no access to an electricity supply. A sustainable solution is available in the form of off-grid systems. These produce renewable energy from sun, wind or water in the exact places where it is needed. SMA off-grid systems are extremely robust and can therefore be modernized, even when the batterie´s lifecycle ends. Replacing old lead-acid batteries now with modern lithium-ion technology increases the efficiency and service life of the off-grid system.
Clean electricity supply around the clock without expensive grid expansion – no problem for PV systems combined with battery-storage systems. Intelligent system technology ensures the smooth interaction of PV systems, batteries, the utility grid and loads. SMA storage system expert Dr. Aleksandra-Sasa Bukvic-Schäfer explains why the right battery inverter plays a central role in every storage system.
There may never be enough solar power in the household for your own personal energy transition. The Sunny Home Manager 2.0 provides some practical help in this respect. It automatically distributes the power from the roof within the household according to where you need it at that time: for washing the dishes or doing the laundry, integrating a heat pump or charging your electric car. It doesn’t get any simpler or greener than this. A new update is now making the Sunny Home Manager 2.0 even smarter.
The world of energy is changing: PV systems are becoming increasingly common on roofs in cities as well as industrial and rural areas and are thus driving the energy transition forward. More and more companies are using PV systems to gain independence from electric utility companies and rising costs. Companies are making an active contribution to climate protection by using their own electricity from the roof. Any company that still has space on its roof or premises should not miss this opportunity.
More than 70 percent of all PV systems connected to the grid now have a battery-storage system. Why? Because more and more cost-effective batteries ensure that solar power is also available after sundown. Anywhere in the world. Even in your home?
