SMA Solar Technology AG is a subsidiary of the SMA Group. SMA provides innovative PV diesel hybrid solutions to meet the energy demand and supply efficient power to home, rural areas, and industries. The company is focusing on availing international growth opportunities, and hence, is continuously developing new photovoltaic products and enhancing its existing products. It has added many new hybrid power solutions to widen its product portfolio and provide solutions for both residential and commercial customers. SMA has installed PV diesel hybrid system in countries such as India, Lebanon, and Kingdom of Tonga. The company has huge opportunity in exploring Africa and the Middle East region for its PV diesel hybrid solutions, as these regions are the fastest growing markets for telecommunications. In late 2015, SMA America partnered with Farm from a Box to develop an off-grid toolkit for food production. The toolkit comprised 10 high-efficiency solar modules, an SMA Sunny Island 6048-US off-grid inverter, SMA Sunny Boy 3000TL-US inverter with Secure Power Supply, SMA Sunny Web Box remote monitoring solution, SMA Smart former transformer and distribution box, and deep-cycle batteries for energy storage. The array is supported by a 3,000-watt generator.
Siemens AG provides hybrid power solutions as a part of renewable energy under its energy business vertical. The company provides technology-based solutions depending upon load and locally available renewable resources (wind or solar) and economical, reliable, and environmental energy. Siemens partnered with other hybrid solutions provider such as Danvest, which would help the company to explore more markets and industries. Recent partnership with Danvest helped Siemens to explore the mining industry market which is a potential market for hybrid power solutions. The company’s “one stop shop” would help clients to meet their energy requirements. In 2015, Siemens partnered with Danvest Energy and Eurus Energy to provide hybrid power solutions to the Australian mining industry. This project was worth USD 300 million and generated 30 MW power for mine sites.
