SMA at this year’s Intersolar Europe
SMA will be presenting innovations for all areas of application in photovoltaics at this year’s Intersolar Europe in Munich from June 10 to June 12, 2015. The key focus will be on comprehensive system solutions for greater independence in the use of energy. In addition to the completely newly developed Sunny Boy 1.5/2.5 for high self-consumption with small PV systems, SMA will also show new developments in domestic energy management with SMA Smart Home.
For commercial businesses, the new system solutions based on the Sunny Tripower and Sunny Island offer greater independence even in the event of grid failure. For large-scale PV power plants, SMA will be demonstrating a new type of container solution at Intersolar Europe for the first time. This combines a 2.5 MW central inverter, a medium-voltage transformer and medium-voltage switchgear as a turnkey solution in a standard container.
