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?
The world of energy is changing: PV systems are becoming increasingly common on roofs in cities and rural areas and...
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.
Regular maintenance of large central inverters is important to ensure maximum efficiency and long-term profitability of the entire PV project. In order to make preventive maintenance work and acute corrections to individual components as easy as possible, SMA presented a new app for electricians at Intersolar 2019. (Video)
Worldwide several million households enjoy safe, clean and cost-efficient energy from PV systems. Despite this, some online media sources claim that PV systems cause fires and put firefighters at grave risk. These articles spread fears about PV safety and are sometimes used to sell add-on safety products like module shutdown devices. Fortunately, these fears are unfounded.
