SMA Commercial Energy Solution​

Manage and distribute solar energy

Manage business loads intelligently

Systematic energy management

Cooling systems, ventilation, lighting and other mechanical loads: SMA Commercial Energy Solution​ combines all the energy flows in your company to create a single, all-encompassing system – and already today makes controlling possible across all energy sectors. As a result, you can actively shape certain elements of your energy supply, and soon you will be able to manage them intelligently. This helps you optimize consumption and achieve your ambitious environmental targets.

Optimally coordinate all energy flows

Here is how it works: SMA Data Manager M monitors and analyzes all the system components and energy flows 24/7. On this basis, you can implement specific measures designed to optimize energy usage – manually or, in the near future, automatically. Replace old devices that consume too much power. Avoid load peaks by starting various operational machines at different times.

Benefits

Up to 50% lower energy costs

In the near future
increase self-consumption of solar power through intelligent energy management

In the near future
harmonize and automatically control energy flows to avoid load peaks

Application example

Managing SMA Commercial Energy Solution​ optimally and avoiding load peaks

  • 04:30

    It is early in the morning and it is all go in the industrial bakery, where the ovens have to be fired up. The PV system is not yet providing sufficient power. This means that a large amount of grid power has to be purchased in addition. A load peak is imminent – and that can become expensive.

  • 04:30

    The solution: The SMA Commercial Energy Solution​ slightly stagger the times at which the ovens are started. Less power has to be purchased in one go and load peaks can be avoided.

  • 09:00

    Late in the morning, the PV system provides more solar power than is needed for operations. The surplus power is temporarily stored in the battery-storage systems for later use, rather than being fed into the grid. After all, your SMA Commercial Energy Solution​ knows that you will need a lot of power again in the evening.

  • 18:30

    It is all go once again in the evening. Lots of appliances – cooling systems, ventilation, lights and so on – are in operation and another load peak is imminent because the PV system is no longer providing sufficient power. But the battery-storage systems are fully charged and so can be used for powering the appliances. No power – or, at the very least, less power – has to be purchased. After all, it is still very expensive at this time.

  • 23:00

    Late in the evening, the battery-storage systems are empty and the PV system cannot supply any more solar power either. But fortunately, the power tariffs are affordable – something that your SMA Commercial Energy Solution​ took into account at the planning stage. This means that your appliances can procure low-cost power from the utility grid.

SMA Data Manager M

The brain of SMA Energy System Business

Info

Together with the Sunny Portal powered by ennexOS, the SMA Data Manager M is the central system of your SMA Commercial Energy Solution​.

SMA Data Manager M

Features

  • It monitors and analyzes all energy flows in your company.

  • Sunny Portal powered by ennexOS supplies it with additional information such as a weather forecast and time-based electricity supply tariffs and, on this basis, creates a deployment schedule.

  • All energy flows are coordinated and controlled so that as much solar power as possible is consumed and expensive load peaks are avoided.
