SMA Solar Technology AG – Energy That Changes

As a leading global specialist for photovoltaic system technology, SMA is setting the standards today for the decentralized and renewable energy supply of tomorrow. More than 3,000 SMA employees in 20 countries have devoted themselves to this task. Our innovative solutions for all photovoltaic applications and our unsurpassed service offer our customers worldwide greater independence in meeting their energy needs.

Intelligent System Technology for Greater Independence

People living in industrialized countries are using intelligent SMA technology to transform their houses into smart homes. By integrating storage systems, the electricity generated from rooftop systems can be used in the evening as well. Industrial and commercial companies are installing PV systems, together with our highly efficient inverters, on their buildings to reduce operating costs by producing cost-efficient solar power.

In newly industrialized countries with high levels of solar irradiation, large PV power plants equipped with SMA system technology are providing more and more people with rapid access to a sustainable and inexpensive electricity supply – and thereby to greater prosperity and economic development. Industrial consumers who struggle with regular power outages or who have no access to the utility grid at all are no longer dependent on expensive diesel fuel for a reliable and uninterrupted electricity supply. With the SMA Fuel Save Solution, they can turn their diesel generators into photovoltaic diesel hybrid systems, thus saving money and reducing CO2 emissions. 

Comprehensive Service for Affordable Operation

Even after the PV systems are commissioned, our customers worldwide can rely on SMA and our comprehensive range of services, which ensure that their photovoltaic systems are operating cost efficiently at all times.

For over 30 years, SMA has helped hundreds of thousands of people and companies produce and consume energy independently according to their individual needs. In collaboration with our customers and partners, we are helping the people around the world transition to a self-sufficient and decentralized energy supply.
