Die Beziehung zwischen Heimspeicherlösungen und Michael Ebel hält bereits ein Jahrzehnt. Er war von Anfang an für SMA dabei und hat den Markt für einen Rückblick noch mal besonders unter die Lupe genommen. Er gibt Einblicke in eine Entwicklung auf der Überholspur, verrät, was eine gute Partnerschaft ausmacht und sagt, warum die Batterie im Heimspeichersystem von Anfang an mitgedacht werden sollte.

(R)evolution of the home storage system

Michael Ebel has spent the past decade specializing in home storage solutions. As someone who was there right at the start for SMA, he gave us a detailed insight into the market for this interview. He talks about accelerated development processes, reveals exactly what constitutes a good partnership and tells us why the battery in the home storage system should be considered right from the start.

Fit in die Zukunft: Repowering für Solarkraftwerke

Fit for the future: Repowering for PV power plants

Low performance, components increasingly malfunctioning or data security no longer guaranteed? In these scenarios, power plant operators and investors should be urgently looking for information on how to modernize their power plants, even before they are technically due for an upgrade. After all, repowering solutions can significantly increase profitability.

How to design East/West polystring PV arrays

How to design East/West polystring PV arrays

Have you ever heard about polystrings? Did you know that PV plants with this special plant design benefit from more energy yield over the course of the day? Sunny Design Web will help you easily design a polystring PV Array. Find out all you need to know about this key but often overlooked feature.

More sunshine needed in the tank

Driving under electric power is already more cost-effective than gasoline-fueled vehicles, says Lisa Spangenberg. As an expert in charging technology, she knows exactly where momentum of the energy transition on the road is still lacking. She also explains why e-mobility is becoming more and more fun.

Charge your electric vehicle at home

Charge your electric vehicle at home

The energy transition on our roads is booming. Politicians and businesses are promoting electric vehicles; the population is increasingly switched on to environmental issues; and at the same time, more and more electric vehicles suitable for daily use are being produced. However, e-mobility is truly sustainable only when the charging current comes from renewable energy sources. To ensure that you can charge your electric vehicle reliably at all times and, ideally, using solar power generated on your own roof, we developed the SMA EV Charger charging solution. This allows you to convert your solar harvest cost-effectively and climate-neutrally to miles on the road.

SMA Malawi

Malawi village powered up with solar-based microgrid

Der Moment, der das Leben der Dorfbewohner in Mthembanji veränderte, kam in einem 20-Fuss-Container: Im Juli 2020 startete das afrikanische Dorf ein solares 12-kWp-Mikronetz. Damit konnten 60 Haushalte und Kleinunternehmen erstmals elektrisches Licht einschalten.

So geht prognosebasiertes Laden

How forecast-based charging works

Thanks to the SMA forecast-based battery charging feature, PV system operators can generate higher PV yields and also lengthen the calendar service life of batteries. With our checklist, you can configure your system in Sunny Portal accordingly, ensuring that no valuable solar power is lost in the future while also extending the service life of your devices.

SMA Dong Nam Viet

Trusted tech is critical for the global energy transition

Emerging economies hold huge potential for the global energy transition. In countries like Ghana and Vietnam, energy demand is rapidly increasing; the source of this power will be decisive in our ability to limit climate change. But in markets that many investors still see as unknown, how can we ensure that renewable energy projects get the funding they need? Trusted technology plays a crucial role.

Digitalizing regenerative power plants – managing energy intelligently

Digitalizing regenerative power plants – managing energy intelligently

The share of renewable energies in the electricity supply is rising and regenerative power plants such as large PV power plants or battery-storage systems are increasingly coming to the fore in the energy industry. With the SMA Power Plant Manager, these decentralized energy systems do not only meet all the requirements of grid operators, but are also optimally prepared for new energy marketing models.
