Have you ever heard about polystrings? Did you know that PV plants with this special plant design benefit from more energy yield over the course of the day? Sunny Design Web will help you easily design a polystring PV Array. Find out all you need to know about this key but often overlooked feature.
Driving under electric power is already more cost-effective than gasoline-fueled vehicles, says Lisa Spangenberg. As an expert in charging technology, she knows exactly where momentum of the energy transition on the road is still lacking. She also explains why e-mobility is becoming more and more fun.
Since its launch in 2017, the Sunny Tripower CORE1, the first freestanding string inverter, has proven its value with installers for commercial megawatt projects. This is what Serge Communal, Technical Expert and Trainer at the SMA Solar Academy, observed. In daily contact with our (partner) installers, he accompanies them and advises them on technical questions relating to large rooftop projects. In this article, he explains why installers particularly appreciate CORE1.
Chocolate and the sun are actually not a good combination, but the La Ronda chocolate factory in Dubai proves the two can go together very well. The factory is now relying on solar power to manufacture its speciality "Chocodates." The goal is to produce the Chocodates with a zero-carbon footprint.
The energy transition on our roads is booming. Politicians and businesses are promoting electric vehicles; the population is increasingly switched on to environmental issues; and at the same time, more and more electric vehicles suitable for daily use are being produced. However, e-mobility is truly sustainable only when the charging current comes from renewable energy sources. To ensure that you can charge your electric vehicle reliably at all times and, ideally, using solar power generated on your own roof, we developed the SMA EV Charger charging solution. This allows you to convert your solar harvest cost-effectively and climate-neutrally to miles on the road.
Der Moment, der das Leben der Dorfbewohner in Mthembanji veränderte, kam in einem 20-Fuss-Container: Im Juli 2020 startete das afrikanische Dorf ein solares 12-kWp-Mikronetz. Damit konnten 60 Haushalte und Kleinunternehmen erstmals elektrisches Licht einschalten.
Whether washing the dishes, doing the laundry in an eco-friendly way or heating and charging the e-car with solar power – we show you all electrical and thermal devices that you can use for you smart home.
The UK Solar Energy industry is seeing a huge swing in the direction of Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), recently we discussed this with SMA UK’s client Aniron Renewables’ Sesh Diu and Ian Howat.
Solar power production is finally up and running again at full capacity in West Murray, Australia. The generation caps, which were imposed on five PV power plants over a period of seven months, have now been lifted. And this is all thanks to an innovative control software installed on all the inverters in the PV farms. The software was developed by various experts including SMA’s Christian Hardt and Daniel Premm, who worked around the clock to get the job done.
Thanks to the SMA forecast-based battery charging feature, PV system operators can generate higher PV yields and also lengthen the calendar service life of batteries. With our checklist, you can configure your system in Sunny Portal accordingly, ensuring that no valuable solar power is lost in the future while also extending the service life of your devices.
