SMA America is hosting a special event for solar professionals, particularly those focused on utility-scale storage and solar, that will highlight cutting-edge solutions for utility-scale projects. The Utility-scale Storage & PV Forum will take place July 12, 2017, at the Hotel Zetta in San Francisco.
The forum will address challenges and solutions for high-penetration PV networks as well as the value and uses cases for storage, and will highlight SMA’s new large-scale storage solution, the Sunny Central Storage 2500-EV-US. The program will include a wide-range of expertise presented from SMA and Siemens Energy Management Solutions.
“There is a great need for utility-scale solutions with integrated storage in today’s evolving solar mar-ket,” said John Susa, executive vice president of sales for SMA America. “We value the opportunity to discuss these topics with our customers and stakeholders, and we hope they’ll attend this forum and come away with additional knowledge and a better understanding of opportunities in the current landscape.”
The Sunny Central Storage 2500-EV-US is SMA’s power conversion system for large-scale battery stor-age systems. These systems enable the integration of large amounts of intermittent renewable ener-gy into the utility grid while maintaining grid stability. Sunny Central Storage is compatible with differ-ent types of leading battery technologies.
The forum will begin at 8:30 a.m. and run until 1:30 p.m. In addition to educational sessions, the event will provide valuable industry networking. The event is so cool and exclusive that it’s already at capacity. Be on the lookout for the next SMA
