SMA Commercial Energy Solution​

Heat with solar power

Heat with solar power

Make heating with fossil fuels a thing of the past

SMA Commercial Energy Solution​ ensures monitoring of your operational heat supply. You can now manually integrate power-consuming heating systems such as heat pumps, CHP and boilers into your energy systems and supply them with self-generated solar power from your PV system — directly from your roof or from the battery-storage system. In the near future, it will be possible to control this automatically.

Increase your self-consumption of solar power

If you use an energy system based on renewable energy — a heat pump, for example — you can heat your business without causing CO emissions and never have to pay another gas or oil bill. With a thermal storage system, you can store additional solar power that you can use to heat your building or water. This helps increase the share of solar power that you consume yourself. This is the most cost-effective use, since your cost for using additional power is higher than what you receive for the grid feed-in of power.

Application example

How SMA Commercial Energy Solution​ can prioritize self-generated solar power for operating your heat pump or CHP plant.

  • 06:30

    It is early morning and the sun is already shining. Your PV system initially supplies the heat pump with solar power so that you have enough heat and hot water.

  • 07:30

    When the required temperature has been reached, the process of charging your battery-storage systems begins.

  • 12:00

    The sun continues to shine. Throughout the entire day, the electrical appliances in your company are supplied with solar power directly from the roof.

  • 14:00

    By the early afternoon, your PV system is generating more power than needed. A proportion of this surplus solar power is stored temporarily in the battery-storage systems.

  • 20:30

    The rest is used for operating your heat pump. But not all the heat generated is currently required, which is why the heat is stored temporarily in a thermal storage system.
