Driving under electric power is already more cost-effective than gasoline-fueled vehicles, says Lisa Spangenberg. As an expert in charging technology, she knows exactly where momentum of the energy transition on the road is still lacking. She also explains why e-mobility is becoming more and more fun.
The energy transition on our roads is booming. Politicians and businesses are promoting electric vehicles; the population is increasingly switched on to environmental issues; and at the same time, more and more electric vehicles suitable for daily use are being produced. However, e-mobility is truly sustainable only when the charging current comes from renewable energy sources. To ensure that you can charge your electric vehicle reliably at all times and, ideally, using solar power generated on your own roof, we developed the SMA EV Charger charging solution. This allows you to convert your solar harvest cost-effectively and climate-neutrally to miles on the road.
The world’s leading trade fair for the solar industry, Intersolar Europe, had to be cancelled this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. With the new event format "Let's talk energy! POWER ON", SMA offered its customers and partners a digital alternative to the Munich trade fair in June. In the livestream, presenter Kimsy von Reischach and top-class experts provided interactive discussions and exciting glimpses behind the SMA scenes.
The world of energy is changing: PV systems are becoming increasingly common on roofs in cities as well as industrial and rural areas and are thus driving the energy transition forward. More and more companies are using PV systems to gain independence from electric utility companies and rising costs. Companies are making an active contribution to climate protection by using their own electricity from the roof. Any company that still has space on its roof or premises should not miss this opportunity.
This supermarket is using solar power and an energy management system and is interconnecting all electricity consumers with producers — the result being low electricity costs and lower CO2 emissions.
Visitors to the Hans-Peter Porsche Traumwerk museum in Bavaria can now charge their electric vehicles with solar power while they marvel at the tin toys, model railways and classic cars on show. A 300 kWp PV system supplies not only the building with electricity, but also the charging stations for electric cars and bikes.
Charging your electric vehicle at home helps you save time and money— especially when the charging process is intelligently integrated into your home energy system. At the 3rd E-Mobility Plugfest at the Audi plant in Brussels, communication between the charging infrastructure and other energy generators and consumers was put to the test.
E-mobility is an important milestone of the energy transition. The majority of car manufacturers already have electric models in their...
People are becoming more and more mobile worldwide. A trend that not only presents considerable challenges for transportation planners, but also makes a significant contribution to climate change. How do we shape the sustainable and user-friendly mobility of the future? Annika Kunze, expert in e-mobility and energy solutions for supermarkets at SMA subsidiary coneva, presents her insights and forecasts.
