Digital SMA Let´s talk energy! POWER ON event impresses customers and partners

The world’s leading trade fair for the solar industry, Intersolar Europe, had to be cancelled this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. With the new event format "Let's talk energy! POWER ON", SMA offered its customers and partners a digital alternative to the Munich trade fair in June. In the livestream, presenter Kimsy von Reischach and top-class experts provided interactive discussions and exciting glimpses behind the SMA scenes.

Solar Storage – A Declaration of Independence for Your Home

Record solar yields in Europe: The summers of recent years have been extremely profitable for PV system operators. While nature suffered under the unrelenting heat of the sun, millions of PV systems were busy producing green power. And this is how PV system operator Vincent Illian is becoming increasingly independent from electric utility companies – right in the heart of Germany.

Photovoltaics Is Becoming the World’s Most Cost-Effective Energy Source

Less than USD 25 per megawatt-hour of solar power — these kinds of prices are not uncommon any more in sunny regions. Thanks to its continuously falling costs, photovoltaics is on the right track to becoming the world’s most cost-effective source of energy. It thus totally makes environmental and financial sense to build new PV systems rather than continue to rely on conventional power plants.

The strategy consultancy Oliver Wyman states in a study that the coal phase-out could lead to an enormous increase in electricity prices and endanger the security of supply. For economic reasons, gas-fired power plants must now be increasingly used.

Climate Protection: Disappointment but Also Reason for Hope

Despite the valid criticism, the two important climate events that took place last week – the presentation of the German Federal Government’s climate package and the results of the UN Climate Action Summit – represent a start, at least in some areas. It is now a question of maintaining pressure to give us a chance of achieving the 1.5-degree goal.

Climate Change Protests: More Urgent Than Ever

Even though there has been a lot of negative news for the climate in the media in recent weeks, it is still worth taking to the streets for more climate protection. Tomorrow's global climate demonstrations are supposed to demonstrate: The time for talking is over, now we need decisive action.
