With the smart module technology TS4, SMA and Tigo Energy for the first time offer PV system operators to equip individual PV modules with additional functions. For example, when trees or dormers cause partial shading, only the modules that are affected need to be equipped with an optimizer.
Equipped with two Sunny Central 2500-EV inverters the new Medium Voltage Power Station is ready for use in utility-scale PV power plants worldwide. Boris Wolff, Executive Vice President of the Business Unit Utility at SMA, takes you on a tour around and inside the turnkey Medium Voltage Power Station, which offers highest efficiency at a low specific price.
An ever increasing number of manufacturers with high brand recognition are offering solutions for decentralized power supply. One of them is Daimler AG. The automobile group has even recently established a separate subsidiary for the development and sales of its stationary energy storage units, Mercedes-Benz Energy GmbH. The company’s “new star”, a battery storage system which can be seamlessly integrated into the SMA Flexible Storage System, attracted much interest at Intersolar Europe.
ees Award Goes to Sunny Boy Storage: “Cost-Effective Solution for Storing Self-Generated Electricity”
The Sunny Boy Storage 2.5 for high-voltage batteries did not only win the ees award Intersolar Europe, it also drew a lot of attention at the SMA booth. The AC-coupled battery inverter is suitable for new PV systems as well as for retrofit storage integration in private households.
Crisis in the solar sector? No way! Once again, a visit to the SMA booth is well worth your while. We’ll be presenting exciting new products, from small applications to boost your self-consumption, to innovations for remote off-grid areas, to compact stations for PV farms. In this post, we’ve put together a few highlights for you.
From June 4-6, 2014, Munich became the center of the solar industry. 44,000 visitors flocked to Intersolar Europe to learn more about the latest solar innovations. Follow us through 3 days of Intersolar and experience the show through the eyes of SMA. Didn’t get to make the trip over? Don’t worry, we captured the most important moments and our personal highlights for you on video.
The first wall-mounted, mass-produced PV inverter with an integrated battery can increase the self-consumption of solar power in households by up to 50%. That’s why the product received the Intersolar AWARD at Intersolar Europe 2013. Interview with Martin Rothert, Director of Product Management, and Volker Wachenfeld, Senior Vice President of Hybrid and Storage who had the idea to this innovation.
