[Translate to English:] SMA Commercial Storage Solution

The integrated commercial storage solution

SMA Commercial Storage Solution

Energy efficiency and cost savings for companies

The SMA Commercial Storage Solution enables businesses to increase their energy efficiency and reduce their dependency on conventional energy sources. With this solution, businesses can also reduce their energy costs for the long term and regain control of them. 

Integrated storage solution with comprehensive service offering

The commercial storage solution provides comprehensive support throughout the entire product life cycle. From load profile and ROI calculation with Sunny Design and commissioning support right through to certification training for the system and battery – everything comes from a single source. This unique service package is rounded off by a ten-year warranty on the entire system. 

Flexible and suited to expansion thanks to modular components

The modular design of the components makes it easy to design or expand the configuration with a high level of flexibility. The commercial storage system is already fully equipped for battery backup and backup applications* and functions with and without PV. With the integrated system manager, the commissioning and integration of other SMA components such as PV inverters, EV chargers or sensors is child’s play. 

A variety of storage applications for a sustainable energy supply

The integrated energy management makes a variety of storage applications possible. Increased self-consumption and peak load shaving, or even a combination thereof with multi-use: all of this is leading to commercial customers reducing their energy costs permanently and making them easier for companies to control.

How can I obtain a quote for the SMA Commercial Storage Solution?

You can submit your query via the SMA solar power professional search at www.sma.de/kontakt/fachhandwerkersuche. We will forward it to select solar power professionals who will prepare an offer for you.

From which distributors can I order the SMA Commercial Storage Solution?

You can find an overview of our distribution partners here: www.sma.de/kontakt/handelspartner.

In what sizes is the SMA Commercial Storage Solution available?

There are two basic systems: The small system consists of a 30 kW battery inverter with 32k Wh battery, and the larger system consists of a 50 kW battery inverter with 56 kWh battery. Both systems can be flexibly expanded with further battery inverters or with further storage modules or cabinets on a modular basis.

Can the SMA Commercial Storage Solution also be combined with SMA PV inverters and SMA EV Chargers?

Yes. All SMA components can be integrated via the integrated System Manager. For SMA EV Chargers, monitoring is currently only possible via the ennexOS operating system; full integration is currently being prepared.

How long is the warranty for the SMA Commercial Storage Solution?

The entire storage solution offers a 10-year warranty on the entire system after successful product registration. The battery is covered by a separate performance warranty.

Can multiple SMA Commercial Storage Solutions be combined?

Yes, this is easily possible.

What qualifications do I need to install an SMA Commercial Storage Solution? Are there any special training sessions?

The SMA Commercial Storage Solution may only be commissioned by trained installers. Training via the SMA Solar Academy is required for this purpose. Information about the current training offers can be found here: https://solaracademy.sma.de/en

How do I design my storage solution?

A design can be carried out independently via Sunny Design. For more complex systems, SMA provides support for design with SMA energyconcepts and can create meaningful concepts, including profitability analyses, based on individual consumption data and conditions.

How many devices can the integrated System Manager control and monitor?

Up to 10 devices. These devices can be battery inverters, PV inverters or other Modbus elements such as e-meters, IOs or weather stations.

What does the SMA Commercial Storage Solution comprise?

The SMA Commercial Storage Solution offers comprehensive services over the entire product life cycle. In addition to the hardware (battery inverter, battery, e-meter), this also includes energy management, training courses, design service, commissioning service, a 10-year warranty and on-site service for the entire system including any other SMA components such as PV inverters or SMA EV Charger.

Can I get help with commissioning from SMA?

Yes, SMA offers a commissioning service. The form will be sent with the order confirmation.

For analog signals from the network operator, can I connect a MOXA or WAGO device via Modbus directly to the Sunny Tripower Storage X (without EDMM)?

Yes, this is easily possible.

Can I also buy the Sunny Tripower Storage X battery inverter separately and operate it with my own batteries?

No, this is not possible. The all-in-one service package of the Commercial Storage Solution is based on a consistent strategy: We supply only components that are coordinated, qualified and certified. SMA assumes the system responsibility, system warranty, and offers service for the entire system.

The Sunny Tripower Storage X is therefore not sold individually and must not be operated with other batteries.

Can I expand the battery capacity at a later date?

Yes, this is possible. Within a storage cabinet, additional modules can be added up to six months after commissioning. Additional parallel storage cabinets (up to four) can be retrofitted anytime.

Does the storage system also provide an emergency power function/back-up?

The battery inverter is already equipped with a battery-backup function on the hardware side. The software function is currently still under development. The system can therefore later be used for backup power applications via a simple firmware update and an additional back-up box (for grid disconnection).

Why should a customer buy all components from SMA?

Only SMA offers the entire solution from a single source. This means that you, as a customer, have only one contact person if, contrary to expectations, something does not work in your system. And who knows SMA devices better than SMA? In addition, the 10-year system warranty for the entire system is only available from SMA.

Can I install the storage system outdoors?

No, unfortunately not. The storage system is a classic indoor system.

In which markets is the system available?

SMA already offers the SMA Commercial Storage Solution for many markets in Europe. Your SMA solar power professional or SMA trading partner will be happy to inform you about approved markets.

Why is the Sunny Tripower Storage X so large?

The battery inverter is a true all-round solution and includes a battery boost converter that provides incredible flexibility, even using small battery capacities. In addition, the System Manager as a replacement for an SMA Data Manager M is already included into the device directly from the factory. The 4-wire topology on the AC side also eliminates the need for an additional isolation transformer for backup power applications later on.

Is the Sunny Tripower Storage a hybrid inverter?

No, the Sunny Tripower Storage is an AC-coupled battery inverter. It is therefore particularly well suited for commercial installations where flexibility plays a major role.

Does SMA manufacture the batteries itself?

No. The SMA battery is manufactured based on our specification and consists of high quality NMC cells from the manufacturer Samsung SDI.
