SMA Energy Data Services - Basis for the Energy Industry

The platform for energy data

Potential benefits of data from PV systems for improved integration of solar energy in utility grids and markets

The energy supply of the future

The energy supply of the future is digital, decentralized and renewable. Instead of a small number of centralized large-scale PV power plants, increasing numbers of decentralized, renewable energy sources are feeding power into the utility grids. This development creates new challenges for grid operators, energy traders and marketers. Precise projections and forecasts regarding grid feed-in and consumption are therefore becoming increasingly important for reliable grid integration, needs-based grid expansion planning and marketing of electricity from renewable energies - especially in the light of rising self-consumption and the use of battery-storage systems.

The professionally prepared data from SMA Energy Data Services represents an ideal solution here. Worldwide, more than 900,000 PV systems* of all sizes send data from low and medium voltage to our Sunny Portal online monitoring portal via SMA inverters. On that basis, we can provide comprehensive, current PV system and grid status data for many countries, control areas and markets.
