Storage Solutions From SMA. Clean energy. Anywhere. Anytime.

Renewable energy transition now: store solar power

A PV system with a battery-storage system provides cost-effective and sustainable power generated from the sun around the clock. This frees us from dependence on fossil fuels and rising costs. Large storage power plants can now ensure electricity supply at all times of day or night. Storage systems are a fundamental part of the energy transition and SMA is developing storage solutions for every application and size. For a 100% renewable energy supply. Anywhere in the world.

With SMA storage solutions, you have greater independence from:

fossil fuels and climate-damaging CO2

Reliable and sustainable electricity supply

The PV system and storage system operate in harmony to ensure that solar power can be used even when the sun is not shining. SMA battery inverters provide stored solar energy from the battery at night or when the sky is overcast. In doing so, an SMA storage system illuminates the darkness, even during a power outage.

The energy transition for your home
Climate protection efforts start right on our own doorstep

A PV system with an integrated battery-storage system is your personal contribution to the energy transition. The battery ensures that you can use your self-generated solar power around the clock. The goal is to minimize grid-supplied power by using sustainably generated energy, because with every kilowatt hour of solar power that you use at home, you require less power from the conventional power company.

There are many good reasons:

  • You play an active role in ushering in the energy transition
  • You free yourself from dependence on conventional suppliers
  • You enjoy a reliable supply at all times, even in the event of a grid failure
  • You cut your electricity costs
  • You can sell your solar power yourself

Battery-storage systems are an attractive addition if you are receiving either a low tariff or no feed-in tariff at all for your PV systems. With our storage systems, you can upgrade your PV system and expand it on a modular basis in the future – for example, if you would like to use renewable energy to charge an electric car.

Benefits of storage systems in a single-family home
Reduce electricity costs sustainably without compromising comfort and quality of living

  • Reduce grid-supplied power
  • Contribute personally to climate protection
  • Minimize your power bill

Storage system:

Ile d'Oléron, France, 2019
4 kWp of PV power + 7.6 kWh of storage capacity

The energy transition for companies
Reduce operating costs over the long term and benefit from a green image

With sustainably produced solar power, you as an entrepreneur can make an important contribution toward protecting the environment and promoting sustainability that will lead to a considerable decrease in operation costs. Expensive load peaks are a real problem for small to medium-sized businesses, supermarkets, hotels and agricultural businesses, and quickly lead to high operating costs. A storage system allows for free use of cached energy from the battery at times of high power demand.

This pays off in several respects:

  • You reduce operating costs over the long term
  • You actively contribute to climate protection
  • You score points with customers thanks to the green image
  • You can offer your customers and employees additional, attractive benefits such as free solar power for charging their electric vehicles
  • You can develop new business models through direct selling

Predictable and economical energy supply
Grid security guaranteed at all times

Centralized supply structures are increasingly becoming decentralized during the course of the energy transition. Electric utility companies are confronting some new challenges since volatile renewable energy generation requires compensation power that can be quickly controlled.

SMA storage solutions for PV power plants enable a reliable and affordable energy supply:

  • Grid management services for stable grid operation
  • Optimum integration of renewable energies into the existing infrastructure
  • Avoid expensive utility grid expansion


We are happy to assist you with your PV storage power plant.

Benefits of storage systems for power plant operators:
Help stabilize the utility grid

  • Frequency stabilization
  • Relieve strain on the utility grids through reactive power provision
  • Integrate of renewable energies

Grid-quality solar power
Stable electricity supply even under the most extreme conditions

Whether supplying an alpine hut or an entire village, battery-storage systems reliably provide grid-quality solar power for individual homes, lodges, commercial and industrial enterprises, and even remote islands. SMA storage solutions enable sustainable and economical power supply in regions with low electrification rates.

  • Reliable electricity supply without grid access
  • No more diesel fuel and high transport costs
  • Reduced CO2 emissions
  • Modular expansion at any time

Benefits of storage systems for off-grid regions:
Reduce reliance on fossil fuels and use 100% solar power by day.

  • Reliable electricity supply with European grid quality
  • Reserve power supply
  • Fully automatic synchronization between diesel operation and battery operation
  • Uninterrupted power supply in the event of outage of the diesel generator (hot standby)
