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?

Combined with intelligently managed battery-storage systems, photovoltaics provides a reliable supply of electricity around the clock exactly where it is needed. At the same time, it is helping support grids. With the costs of solar energy and batteries decreasing, nothing stands in the way of their increased expansion.
Holistic energy monitoring for photovoltaics, diesel gensets, hydropower, CHP & Co.: This tech tip shows how to incorporate a Modbus TCP energy meter into your system with SMA Data Manager M powered by ennexOS.
Centralized or decentralized? Which design is best suited for large-scale solar systems? Answers can be found in a new whitepaper.
Invest and keep operating, or dismantle it? Ideally, this is a question that operators of PV power plants only have to ask when a plant is nearing the end of its planned productivity period.
