France-based energy and gas provider, Engie and Germany’s storage system manufacturer, Sonnen have launched a new complete package for the self-consumption of solar power for French residential customers. The package will rely on Sonnen’s MyPower battery solution.
“The French storage market is at the very beginning and therefore offers enormous potential. This shows that more and more people around the world want to shape their energy future themselves and to use our technology,” said Sonnen CEO, Christoph Ostermann.
“This solar battery with a designer look, is flexible with made-to-measure storage of between 2.5 and 15 kWh. It means that a self-sufficiency rate as high as 96% can be reached in certain configurations5. sonnen is installed in more than 30,000 homes worldwide,” Engie noted.
The two companies stressed that power prices rose by around 20% over the past years, and that an interesting incentive scheme is currently open to solar PV projects for self-consumption. According to their joint press release, Engie is currently providing power from clean energy sources to around 1.6 million customers in France.
Engie is active in the residential PV segment through Netherlands-based Sungevity International, the European unit of U.S. residential solar company, Sungevity, which it acquired last year.
