For solar or battery projects in the megawatt (MW) range SMA Sunbelt can furthermore support you with additional services in order to turn your project idea into a successful project.
Based on our engineering experience and worldwide network, we can offer you services ranging from integrated solutions to complete turnkey implementation. Especially for innovative solutions in emerging markets, we help to reduce the complexity of your project during the planning and implementation phases.
With more than 2 GW of installed battery inverter power, SMA is the market leader for battery inverters on an international scale according to IHS Reports SMA Sunbelt Energy has deployed over 200 MW of BESS systems in several countries worldwide and can accompany your battery storage project from the development phase till commissioning.
Typical application of our BESS projects ranges from grid ancillary services (frequency regulation, reactive power provision, energy trading, dispatching), energy shifting (AC or DC-coupling), synthetic inertia, colocation of BESS with renewables, peak energy shifting and shaving, (AC or DC-coupling), ramp-rate control, black-start and resynchronization, grid forming, UPS behavior, synthetic inertia, off-grid application, and large-scale island electrification.
Having delivered innovative power supply solutions to many (sometimes very remote areas) SMA Sunbelt Energy GmbH can look back on a long track record for over 200 MW successfully realized BESS projects. We are specialized in delivering customized solar, battery or hybrid power supply solutions with innovative control and monitoring solutions upon customer needs.
SMA has its own 5 MW testing facility, which is packed with many different features and options for testing new system technologies for hybrid power supply systems. The test bench simulates standard hybrid stand-alone grids, the kind used to supply villages in off-grid regions. It also simulates hybrid grids to supply commercial and industrial loads.
With this test center, we not only validate our products but also test specific project application scenarios.
PV inverters, battery applications, diesel-gensets in combination with the public grid can be tested here in regard to their technical behavior before shipment and installation.
