The first product from Sonnenbatterie for the North American commercial market is based on a 30kW and 24kWh building block creating energy storage systems from 24kWh to 240kWh, which will be used for demand charge reduction for commercial and industrial customers.
Ryan O'Keefe, Senior Vice President of Business Development for Ideal Power, commented, "We are delighted to work with Sonnenbatterie, the recognized leader in delivering the latest storage solutions in Europe. As they make their entry into the North American market where peak demand management is a growing issue, Ideal Power was the clear choice to integrate with their system."
According to Mr. O'Keefe, "The relationship is a major step for both companies, providing an opportunity for further growth and global inroads. We see it as a perfect partnership, marrying the foremost European storage solution with our groundbreaking technology."
"The U.S. market is ready for Sonnenbatterie's easy to install, reliable and cost-effective energy storage system," Boris von Bormann, CEO of Sonnenbatterie USA said. "We have diligently researched power conversion partners and Ideal Power's technology proved to be the most efficient and reliable available and since it is much smaller and lighter than other power conversion systems we evaluated, it made our choice easy as our Sonnenbatterie systems are designed and engineered with exceptional quality."
Sonnenbatterie leads the German market in lithium-ion energy storage systems for residential customers wanting a reliable system for self-consumption. Sonnenbatterie also offers applications for backup power, enabling energy independence with alternative energy sources to reduce electricity costs for the U.S. market. For commercial customers, Sonnenbatterie's system will help reduce demand spikes that lead to costly peak load charges and takes advantage of varying tariff rates.
