Wildpoldsried, 30th May 2018 - sonnen and the Bavarian Homeowners’ Association have initiated a collaboration for the members of the association. The more than 80,000 homeowners will now benefit from preferential prices when purchasing a sonnenBatterie.
Worldwide, more than 30,000 households are already enjoying the benefits of private energy generation by means of a sonnenBatterie; the majority of these being homeowners. In Germany, using photovoltaic and power storage systems, homeowners are able to provide up to around 75% of their annual energy on a self-generated basis. In the sonnenCommunity, they can even connect with other members and share their energy.
sonnen is pleased to announce the closing of its latest financing round of €60 million, led by Shell Ventures and significantly supported by all existing investors. The investment enables sonnen to expand its strategy of rapid international growth and to further enhance its pioneering position as the “utility of the future.”
Wildpoldsried, May 23, 2018 - As a world leader in smart, residential solar storage solutions, sonnen will be able to leverage this financing to strengthen its lead and accelerate growth in markets such as the United States and Australia.
sonnen makes use of excess green energy, which would otherwise be lost as a result of the curtailment of PV or wind power plants, making it possible to relieve common bottlenecks on the regional distribution networks. Each kilowatt-hour used for this will receive a digital fingerprint via blockchain.
Wildpoldsried, 3rd May 2018 - With the "Flex Platform", in Germany, sonnen is presenting a completely new approach, by which excess green energy can be utilized by a network of sonnenBatterie systems.
Like many German consumers, Christine Lacher, a nurse, and her husband, Reinhard, a factory supervisor, are careful when it comes to energy use.
Wind and solar energy are disrupting a century-old model of providing electricity. What will replace it?
GE Ventures bought a stake in Germany’s Sonnen GmbH to boost its presence in the fast-growing market for battery systems built to store solar power.
I will be happy to help you with media inquiries.
