If you are planning to attend Solar Power International then get ready to see the future of solar right in front of your eyes at SMA Booth #3837. SMA is a proud Megawatt sponsor at this year’s event, which takes place in Salt Lake City from September 23 to 26. Read below for our full list of activities as we’re planning on providing you with a great SPI experience!
Distributed energy resources with storage are being aggregated and managed by SMA using ennexOS, the award-winning cross sector energy management platform.
Distributed renewable energy resources bring a variety of benefits to the electrical grid. However, they also increase complexity due to their intermittent nature. The addition of battery storage can help offset that intermittency while allowing system owners greater self-consumption of their onsite power generation.
But with this distributed network of renewable energy storage systems, how do utilities manage an effective flow of electricity throughout their network while maintaining price and grid stability?
The solution is the Virtual Power Plant enabled by SMA technology.
If a power outage or other emergencies like tornadoes or hurricanes hit your home, you can keep the refrigerator running and the lights on with backup power from by the SMA Energy System.
In Part I of this blog series, we provided details on how homeowners can maximize energy consumption with the SMA Energy System. In Part II, we elaborate on the options for protected loads and whole home backup power.
With the SMA Energy System, homeowners are able to achieve both whole home backup during power outages and efficient energy management when reducing energy bills requires more than just a PV system.
In Part I of this blog series, we will provide details on how homeowners can maximize energy consumption with the SMA Energy System. In Part II, we will elaborate on the options for protected loads and whole home backup power.
