At the beginning of December, leading representatives from the fields of solar, storage technology and the digital economy met at the Digital Solar & Storage conference in Munich, an event organized by SolarPower Europe. This was the first time the event had been held and it provided an impressive insight into the digitalization of the energy supply.
Digitalization will enable new opportunities and business models across the entire energy sector. In order to use the full potential, we will need innovative technological solutions. SMA CTO and COO Jürgen Reinert explains what impact this will have on system technology.
All over the world, digitalization is revolutionizing energy production and supply – and will drive the continued growth of solar PV and other renewable energy sources. What will the energy supply of tomorrow look like? Jochen Schneider, EVP Energy Services at SMA, has some answers.
Our central inverters are designed to generate solar power in PV power plants under very different technical and climatic conditions across the globe. In this 360° video, we show you where and how our Sunny Central inverters are produced.
Recently Willem Westerhof published a study on cybersecurity threads regarding PV inverters, in which SMA was mentioned. Unfortunately, the claim has caused serious concern for our customers. We would like to stress that SMA does not agree with this article, as some of his statements are not correct or greatly exaggerated.
Please be assured that the security of our devices has highest priority for SMA in all respects and that we do everything we can to protect our inverters and communication products against cyber-attacks. We already assessed the mentioned issues on a technical basis and work intensively on the correction. The stated potential security issues only affect older SMA products and only a very few products in our portfolio.

Reducing energy costs, using storage systems and predominantly the digitization of the energy industry were the hot topics at Intersolar Europe 2017. SMA’s new system solutions and its ennexOS energy management platform offer the right answers to every question. Here is our review of the trade fair.
Intersolar Europe 2017: come ottenere il massimo dall’energia grazie alle nuove soluzioni proposte da SMA
Lo sfruttamento dell’energia solare nel settore privato, commerciale e industriale non è mai stato così allettante: SMA, nella sua nuova veste di fornitore di soluzioni, ha presentato ad Intersolar Europe 2017 a Monaco di Baviera, soluzioni di sistema innovative adatte a qualsiasi applicazione.
Can’t make it to Intersolar Europe 2017 in Munich but still want to see what SMA will be showcasing at Europe’s leading trade fair for the solar industry? Our colleague Sebastian Seidl gives you an exclusive virtual tour of the almost finished trade fair booth.
Decentralized, digital, networked – in the new energy world, various players constantly exchange information to ensure that clean electricity is always available to and affordable for everyone. But how secure is this system? Prof. Bernd Engel, an expert in sustainable energy systems at the Technical University of Braunschweig, and Marek Seeger, Information Security Manager at SMA, discuss the risks and opportunities of the digital energy revolution.
