SMA Solar Technology AG (SMA) was presented with the “Solar PV Inverter of the Year” award in the “Solar PV Equipment Suppliers” category at the Global Solar & Storage Awards of Excellence Program Presentation held during the Fifth Annual Global Solar + Energy Storage 2019 in Seoul, South Korea. Among the fourteen awards categories, SMA was recognized for its excellence in Solar PV Equipment Suppliers.
“The installed capacity of SMA inverters has reached more than 75GW in over 190 countries and SMA has undertaken more than 3.5GW power plant operation and maintenance services”, the award jury commented on its decision. “As a leading global specialist in photovoltaic system technology, SMA is setting standards for the energy supply of tomorrow. SMA’s portfolio contains efficient PV inverters, as well as holistic system solutions for PV systems of all power classes, intelligent energy management systems and battery-storage solutions.”
“We feel very honoured to receive this award”, said Adele Zhang, APAC Marketing Director at SMA. “With our comprehensive solutions, we contribute to an energy supply from renewable energy sources. Large-scale PV power plants are increasingly part of the energy supply and the demand for higher voltages and higher power outputs increases continuously”, Adele continues. “In this respect we are very excited to introduce a 1,500 VDC inverter to the PV market. The new SMA Sunny Central UP provides an output power of up to 4,600 kVA.”
SMA’s Sunny Central UP inverters were recognized by PV inverter experts as the leading PV product innovation which delivers the largest capacity in the 1500V DC central inverters market. The central inverter offers the advantage of 17% to 54% fewer inverters. The Sunny Central UP will bring benefits to the customers with significant cost reductions on transportation, installation, commissioning and service. In addition, reducing self-consumption by a total of 53% will lead to a considerable decrease in operation costs.”
