happybirthday4

Using Shadows Effectively

OptiTracGlobalPeak_SMASolar

The technology everyone is talking about right now is power optimizers. They are electronic components that work directly in the PV module to ensure that the maximum amount of DC power can be extracted from each and every solar panel. This is particularly advantageous when modules are in the shade, as the optimizers can “save” as much as 25% of the energy lost through shading. Joachim Laschinski, technology expert at SMA, explains what the phenomenon of shading actually entails and how SMA has solved this problem.

Bula! [“Ciao” in lingua delle Fiji]

SMA_solarpower_Kadavu_Fiji

Quando si parla delle isole Fiji si pensa subito alle meravigliose spiagge di palme e alle acque cristalline in cui fare immersioni.  Noi abbiamo pensato anche all’energia: energia che ha contribuito a garantire un approvvigionamento elettrico più rispettoso dell’ambiente. Finora la produzione di elettricità nelle tre isole Kadavu, Lakeba e Rotuma, che si trovano ad una certa distanza dall’isola principale, era affidata unicamente a generatori diesel. Ora, con l’aiuto del nuovo SMA Fuel Save Controller 2.0, viene immessa anche energia fotovoltaica nella rete elettrica. Ciò garantisce una maggiore sostenibilità per le isole dell’arcipelago.

Bula! [Fijian for “Hello”]

SMA_solarpower_Kadavu_Fiji

When you think of Fiji, you first think of vacation, wonderful beaches with palms and crystal clear water with perfect spots for scuba diving. We also thought of energy: Energy that could help build a more ecological electrical power supply. The existing power supply on the three separate islands of Kadavu, Lakeda and Rotuma around the Fijian mainland had been fully based on diesel generators. Now the SMA Fuel Save Controller 2.0 is helping to integrate solar energy into the power grid. That guarantees more sustainability on these islands.

SMA Donates Inverters to School in Cambodia

building

Whether it’s a sewing machine, computer, lamp or fan: from now on, all electrical devices in the Koh Krolor school will run on solar power. In the poor agricultural region of Battambang in northwestern Cambodia, electrical energy is a luxury that is not available to everyone or in sufficient quantities. The 10 kWp PV system now installed at the school is intended to give children there opportunities for a better education to ensure a better future.
