The SMA Utility-Scale PV & Storage Forum is Back at SPI!

Building  PV  power  plants  is  a  complex  process  that  carries  risk. That’s  why  so  many  choose  SMA  for their  inverter,  storage,  and  O&M  solutions. SMA understands the entire project cycle, including financial planning, logistics, installation, commissioning and service.

The 2019 SMA Utility-Scale PV & Storage Forum at Solar Power International is on Thursday, September 26, in Salt Lake City. Join us!

SMA Utility-Scale PV & Storage Forum

SMA thought leaders will be there to discuss innovative centralized and modular utility PV and storage solutions. They will also examine risk-sharing scenarios for plant servicing as well as repowering options for underperforming utility plants.

The program will include a variety of utility-scale and storage focused topics, with a wide-range of expertise from SMA:

» Optimizing value through centralized utility solutions

» Flexibility and scalability with modular utility solutions

» AC and DC coupled storage solutions

» Risk sharing for optimal service and O&M support

» Repowering solutions from SMA

We also have a robust offering for the utility-scale segment at our booth #3837!

We will display the Sunny Highpower PEAK3, a modular solution with up to 150 kW for large-scale PV power plants. In addition, we will highlight the new Sunny Central UP, SMA’s most powerful system with an output power of up to 4,600 kVA for large-scale PV plants, and our DC DC converter that delivers greater efficiency for large PV power plants.

The 2019 SMA Utility-Scale PV & Storage Forum starts at 8:30am at the Marriot Downtown at City Creek. Seats are limited. Reserve yours today by registering here!
