SMA is looking for solar pioneers

07 ตุลาคม 2563

SMA is looking for PV pioneers who laid the foundation for a sustainable, decentralized energy supply with their PV systems many years ago. With their enthusiasm for photovoltaics, they paved the way for today’s energy transition. All PV system operators who installed an SMA solar inverter or battery inverter in the early years of photovoltaics and are still producing solar power today can participate in the photo campaign. SMA will be giving away 15 solar outdoor packages. The closing date for all entries is December 31, 2020. Generate energy using the power of the sun. For a clean environment, to protect the climate. With no emissions. Sustainable, decentralized and global. What is a logical conclusion for getting climate change under control today was something “exotic” for “nutcases” and lone wolves in the early years of photovoltaics. The PV visionaries often received only a shake of the head for their commitment. However, that didn’t stop them from installing PV inverters and modules with a lot of passion and technical skill. Mostly commonly seen were inverters from SMA. After all, in 1991, the PV-WR 1500 was the first series-produced PV inverter on the market. And the string technology developed by SMA in 1995 significantly simplified the installation of PV systems, thus laying the foundation for the continued success of solar technology. In 1995, PV-WR was followed by the first Sunny Boy and by the Sunny Boy TL inverter in 2008, which had well over one million sales worldwide. Participate for a chance to win – here’s howTogether with system operators around the world, SMA now wants to revive the pioneering years of PV in a photo campaign. The competition is open to anyone residing in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, France, Italy, the U.S. or Australia who installed an SMA PV or battery inverter at least 15 years ago and whose PV system is still running today. Simply post a photo with yourself, the SMA inverter and some key information on social media with the hashtag #PVPioneers or send it to SMA via email (pvpioneers@SMA.de) or by post (see Terms of Participation). The pictures will be displayed on a social wall – a digital photo gallery – on the SMA website. A jury will select the 15 most impressive and award them with a solar outdoor package.

Flexible and cost-effective charging: SMA and Audi connect energy management with e-mobility

19 พฤศจิกายน 2563

One advantage of e-mobility is that users can charge their vehicles conveniently at home. Smart solutions coordinate electric vehicle charging with the requirements of other generators and loads in the household. The smart SMA Charge S charging solution combined with the Audi e-tron connect charging system now integrates the all-electric SUV Audi e-tron into the domestic energy management system. If the home is equipped with a PV system, SMA Charge S even prioritizes solar power for charging the vehicle. “SMA Charge S allows SUV Audi e-tron(*) drivers to easily integrate their electric vehicles into the domestic energy management system and use sustainable solar power,” said Dr. Stephan Engel, charging solutions product manager at SMA. “Thanks to SMA Charge S and the Audi e-tron connect charging system, Audi e-tron drivers can charge their vehicles at home flexibly, reliably and in a cost-optimized manner. Just like the other SMA charging solutions, SMA Charge S allows the e-vehicle to be charged with solar power, making e-mobility even more convenient.” “Coordinated networking between the home and vehicle makes the Audi e-tron an integral part of the smart home,” said Ansgar Neudecker, home charging project manager at AUDI AG. “Seamless integration allows owners to make full use of all the smart charging features – from power outage protection and cost optimization through to solar power utilization. For our customers, this is another important step toward sustainable mobility – and it will be followed by many more.” Charge your car when the electricity is affordableSMA Charge S works with the e-tron connect charging system to ensure that the Audi e-tron is always charged with the highest available power that the home connection and vehicle allow. SMA Charge S also takes into consideration the needs of other household appliances, preventing the home connection from being overloaded. Integration into the domestic energy management system allows the vehicle to be charged at exactly the times when electricity is most affordable. Factors such as the planned departure time and required state of battery charge are also taken into account. Another particularly cost-efficient and sustainably way for PV system owners to charge their Audi e-tron is using solar power from their own roofs. Audi customers can view their individual charging statistics and the charge status in the myAudi portal and on the myAudi app. In addition to the charging times and the amount of electricity used, the relevant costs are also presented in detail. Future car owners will find a local partner from SMA’s extensive network of solar power professionals to check and set up the home installation. Alternatively, their local Audi partner will arrange for a home check during which an electrician will provide advice on customizing and optimizing the charging solution.

Electronic Waste: Recycling Beats Disposal

22 ตุลาคม 2563

Electronic Waste: Recycling Beats Disposalby Matthias Schaepers, 11. Aug. 2020 More than 53 million metric tons of electronic waste were accumulated worldwide in 2019. That is equivalent to 100 times the weight of the world’s tallest skyscraper, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. This is one consequence of rising consumption, the gradual digitalization of our lifestyles and the diminishing service lives of electrical appliances. But besides materials that are harmful to our health and the environment, electronic waste also contains valuable raw materials that can be sustainably reused. Currently, only around 17 percent of the electronic waste accumulated worldwide is recycled each year. The rest is mostly either dumped at landfill sites or incinerated. Sometimes it disappears via dubious routes and is sold via intermediaries to countries where the disposal standards are very low. There are many good reasons to minimize the amount of electronic waste and increase the recycling rate. One important aspect is the risk posed to health and the environment. Electronic waste can contain highly toxic substances. Some devices contain mercury, lead, cadmium, arsenic or beryllium. Incinerating these materials instead of disposing of them properly can result in serious harm to health. We are familiar with the images of children from developing countries that burn our electronic waste in order to get to the valuable materials. Recycling is worth it However, at the same time, electronic waste contains many valuable materials. By way of illustration, these are the quantities of valuable raw materials contained in one million cellphones: around 35 kg of gold, around 350 kg of silver, around 15 kg of palladium and around 15 kg of copper. So it is worth using the many valuable materials found in waste to manufacture new electronic components. That reduces not only the amount of waste, but also demand for raw materials. And let us not forget that raw material extraction often has negative effects on the environment and human health. Thus, recycling also protects sensitive ecosystems, reduces the amount of energy consumed in the transportation of raw materials and prevents human rights abuses in newly industrialized countries. Recycling starts with product design As consumers, what we do with our electronic devices after utilizing them is in our own hands. However, it is at least as important that manufacturers are also aware of their responsibility. And that begins right from the design of the electronic devices. That is because the point at which the device becomes electronic waste and how the materials it contains can be recycled are determined at this early stage. The average cell phone is used for around 18 months. Even if such a thing as planned obsolescence, meaning devices breaking down after a short useful life, is not permitted by law, some providers even incorporate precisely this sort of thing in their strategy. Consumers then frequently think that they are buying devices at particularly favorable prices. Buying high-quality products that last longer as a result is clearly the better alternative. This is because in this case, the manufacturers focus on counteracting resource wastage by extending the useful life. This is a crucial aspect for SMA. The quality and longevity of inverters are taken into account right from the design stage. After all, the calculation is very simple: devices that can be used for twice as long mean that only half as much electronic waste is generated. Another important topic is reparability. Today, many products can no longer be repaired at all. This means that when they suffer even the most minor damage, entire devices often have to be thrown away. Reparability means that companies are responsible for designing their products in such a way that they can be easily repaired and maintained. This is an important point that SMA also takes to heart. For many years, we have been taking faulty inverters back, repairing them where possible and putting them in our warehouse with replacement devices. In turn, this ensures that customers immediately receive a recycled replacement device if service is needed. In addition, SMA is increasingly offering assembly replacement on-site. This avoids the need to dispose of entire devices. Only the defective component is replaced. Design for Recycling If products are designed such that repairs can easily be carried out, they can also be recycled more easily after use. This is referred to as design for recycling. SMA has set itself some ambitious targets in this regard. For example, 90 percent of the components in each of our products is to be recyclable by 2025. At the same time, we are working on steadily increasing the percentage of secondary raw materials that we use in our inverters – and reducing the percentage of critical materials. After all, they are not only questionable in relation to the production and use of electronic devices. Obtaining and disposing of these materials is also problematic. They often prevent components from being recycled. This means that they conflict with our aim, which is to return as many materials as possible to the material cycle as secondary raw materials once our inverters reach the end of their useful lives. And what can I do? Any device that is equipped with electronics in any form does not belong in the household waste but should go to a recycling center. Disposal is free of charge there. Workshops for people with disabilities often accept electronic devices, too. You can donate old electronic devices. There is a variety of organizations that collect old cell phones, for example, and then use the proceeds to support environmental projects. Old electronic devices do not belong in drawers or in the attic. Opt for durable, high-quality products. In the long term, that is also the most cost-effective way. Check whether your broken electronic device can still be repaired. There are repair cafés, for example, that can help with this. There are many products, such as children’s toys, with small electronic functions that are not really necessary. Make a conscious decision not to buy them. Determining for how long we use electronic products and which products we really need is in our own hands. Recycling is important, but it is only the very last step. Up to that point, we should use the product as well and for as long as possible. About missionN Matthias Schäpers is SMA’s Sustainability Officer and Climate Protection Ambassador for Kassel of the Hessian Ministry of the Environment For years, there have been calls for a shift toward sustainable development in order to achieve the agreed climate targets. Scientists unanimously agree that the longer we wait, the more extreme the corrective steps will have to be. This demand is about nothing more and nothing less than what should go without saying – leaving future generations the same living conditions that we have benefited from. We are rightly demanding that government create the appropriate framework conditions for this.But does this fit in with our own behavior? We often act in exactly the opposite way, sometimes consciously, but largely unconsciously and out of habit. Our lifestyle therefore often has effects that we do not even know about. Businesses also need to play their part and take on more responsibility. They can influence the conditions within their production areas, the supply chain and the use of their products, both during and after use. They can encourage their employees to use resources in a more sustainable way, while also making use of their employees’ potential. Many employees already consider it essential to choose a company that takes sustainable behavior seriously and promotes it. The aim of my blog, missionN, is to provide you with valuable information and inspiring suggestions on the topic of sustainable behavior at work and at home. In doing so, I will also actively report on the commitment to sustainability at SMA. You can find more information in the Global Waste Monitor 2020

Dubai’s chocolate manufacturer switches to solar power

19 ตุลาคม 2563

Dubai’s chocolate manufacturer switches to solar power by Asonele Kotu (guest post), 19. Oct. 2020 Chocolate and the sun are actually not a good combination, but the La Ronda chocolate factory in Dubai proves the two can go together very well. The factory is now relying on solar power to manufacture its speciality “Chocodates.” The goal is to produce the Chocodates with a zero-carbon footprint. Making chocolate is a costly and energy consuming process. The practice of sustainability has always played a key role in La Ronda’s vision, which relates to the entire value chain and reconciles economic, social, and environmental concerns: no genetically modified ingredients, both UTZ- and fair-trade-certified chocolate, energy-efficient LED lighting in the modern production and storage facilities, and now a climate-neutral solar power supply as well. Taking sustainability further The factory has a processing capacity of 5 tons per day with a chocolate praline size of 10 to 16 grams. A PV system installed on the roof with a total capacity of 650  kilowatts peak generates 950 megawatt hours of solar power per year, covering around 70% of the entire production energy demand. Twenty-three Sunny Tripower 25000TL-30s and the SMA Cluster Controller ensure that 100% of the valuable solar power can be used in production. Banking on e-mobility La Ronda aims to capitalize on the global trend to e-mobility as well. The charging stations and solar parking lots will be made available for private electric vehicles as well as for suppliers and visitors in the future. Chocodates will become sustainable in every respect. La Ronda LLC  with headquarters in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, was founded in 1992 by Fawaz Masri and is part of the Notions Group. The main product is called “Chocodates” – dates filled with roasted almonds and coated with chocolate. Dates are a symbol of both wealth and health in Arabia.  La Ronda employs more than 300 people and exports to approximately 35 countries worldwide.
