SMA Solar Technology AG is a global leader in the development, production and sales of solar inverters and, as an energy management group, offers innovative key technologies for future power supply structures.

Technologically, the inverter is the most important component of a PV plant. It converts the direct current generated in the photovoltaic cells into alternating current compliant with the grid requirements for self-consumption or feed-in to the power distribution grid. As an intelligent system manager, it also monitors both the PV array and the power distribution grid.

SMA develops and manufactures highly efficient PV inverters for all installation sizes and power classes and for any grid specifications worldwide which perform important grid management functions, which are becoming increasingly important as electricity production from renewable sources grows, these include intelligent energy management at a household level, grid integration of solar power and connecting storage facilities for more effective use of renewable energy.
