Our Utility Solutions
Utility scale battery storage features:
- Peak Shaving
- Discharge at times of peak demand to avoid or reduce demand charges.
- Load Shifting
- Shift energy consumption from one point in time to another to avoid paying high energy
prices. Where applicable, this price optimization accounts for solar or other on-site
- Emergency Backup
- Provide intermediate backup power to your business in the event of a grid interruption.
This function can be standalone or tied to solar.
- Demand Response
- Discharge instantly in response to signals from a demand response administrator to
alleviate peaks in system load.
SMA Utility Power System
Proven technology with new application areas for PV systems – the SMA Multicluster System 12 is now suitable for operation on the utility grid as well. In Germany, it complies with the applicable conditions for connection to the low-voltage grid of VDE-ARN 4105: With the battery inverters Sunny Island 6.0H or 8.0H and the NA-Box 12, commercial self-consumption and batterybackup systems of up to 100 kWp can be set up. On an international scale, the Grid-Connect-Box 12 can be used to form self-consumption and battery-backup systems with an output of up to 138 kWp. The new Multicluster-Box 12 is suitable for TN- and TT-grids thanks to the integrated grounding contactor. In areas with very unstable utility grids, a diesel generator can also be connected. For off-grid regions, the Multicluster-Box 12 allows powerful solar off-grid systems with up to 138 kWp to be set up – ideal for commercial enterprises and village power supplies in rural regions. Flexible For off-grid, on-grid and back-up applications For power range of 30 to 138 kW For TN- and TT-grids. Easy to use Integrated AC distribution for Sunny Island, generator, PV and loads (MC-Box 12) Retrofittable grid connection (NA-Box 12, Grid-Connect-Box12) Better serviceability Safe and reliable Fulfilles German VDE-AR-N 4105 Integrated residual-current device Active anti-islanding.
