New Energy Solutions for all areas of application: SMA Solar Technology AG (SMA) will be exhibiting at Intersolar Europe 2017 in Munich as a provider of system solutions, presenting an entirely new, cross-segment energy management platform. The goal is to offer users Energy Solutions based on this platform to get the most out of renewable energies. In this way, private and commercial users can increase their energy yields and reduce their electricity costs even more. Plus, the innovative solutions SMA Power+ and SMA Energy+ bring additional key aspects that offer the highest level of convenience with their new service concepts, intelligent module technology as well as easy storage integration into all applications. A further highlight of the trade fair is the Sunny Tripower CORE1. Nominated for the Intersolar AWARD, this inverter reduces the costs of commercial PV installations by up to 60% thanks to its unique installation principle.
“As a result of the sharp drop in prices, the worldwide PV markets are registering positive developments. We therefore expect many visitors from Germany and abroad,” said SMA Chief Executive Officer Pierre-Pascal Urbon. “With the development of cost-effective storage systems and the Internet of Things, the world for photovoltaics has completely changed. The goal is to sensibly connect photovoltaic systems to storage, heating, air conditioning and ventilation systems as well as e-mobility and to intelligently control them via platforms. Cutting-edge algorithms from SMA make it possible to use a nearly endless flood of data for optimizing energy costs. Our solution is suitable for both new systems and retrofitting existing systems, which is called repowering.”
Generating, controlling and consuming power even more efficiently
At Intersolar 2017, SMA will be unveiling a new platform for private and commercial users that, with its cross-segment energy management, easy integration into new and existing systems and comprehensive connection, offers the opportunity to further exploit the potential of renewable energies.
With the SMA Power+ Solution featuring the integrated SMA Smart Connected service and intelligent module technology for selective deployment, residential PV system operators can both increase their energy yields and reduce their electricity costs. In addition, the new SMA Energy+ Solution integrates battery storage systems into a system and makes intelligent energy management possible using the new Sunny Home Manager 2.0 which integrates electrical household appliances even more easily and optimizes power consumption. Installers benefit from easier installation and lower system costs.
Unique concepts for commercial PV systems and PV power plants
Nominated for the Intersolar AWARD, the Sunny Tripower CORE1 is the world’s first freestanding string inverter for decentralized rooftop and ground-based PV systems in the commercial sector. By combining a unique design and innovative installation method, the 50 kW inverter reduces installation time of commercial PV systems considerably. The new Sunny High Power PEAK1 comes with 75 kW of power and is ideal for use in PV power plants with decentralized architecture. The Sunny Tripower 60 successor is optimized for use in systems based on the concept featuring the central installation of string inverters in large industrial and ground-based PV systems by combining maximum flexibility in system design with significant cost savings.
Efficient storage solutions for all application areas and battery types
When it comes to storage solutions, SMA will be offering a range of battery inverters for all application areas and battery types. These include the new Sunny Island 4.4M, 6.0H, 8.0H with an integrated user interface for on- and off-grid applications, the new Sunny Boy Storage 3.7, 5.0, 6.0 and the new Sunny Tripower Storage for integration of high-voltage batteries into private and commercial on-grid applications. As the central component of the SMA system solution for large storage systems, the new Sunny Central Storage 2200/2500-EV battery inverter allows for integration of a high level of renewable energies into utility grids with maximum grid stability.
Reliable system solutions for centralized and decentralized PV power plants
Operators, EPCs and investors can also experience the benefits of SMA’s top-notch quality and comprehensively tested and certified components for the utility-scale PV power plant sector. This ensures maximum system reliability and long-term availability of system solutions for PV power plants with centralized and decentralized architecture. The new Medium-Voltage Power Station 5500SC-EV with two new Sunny Central 2750-EV inverters as well as a medium-voltage transformer and switchgear in a container is the ideal SMA solution for PV power plants with 1,500 V DC voltage.
