Wildpoldsried 27th June 2018 – In the future, Porsche Holding Salzburg will be distributing the sonnenBatterie and sonnenCharger, sonnen’s intelligent wallbox for electric vehicles, under the brand name of MOON.
Porsche Holding Salzburg is the largest automotive distribution company in Europe and it is active on a worldwide basis in 27 countries. Since March 2011, Porsche Holding Salzburg has been a wholly-owned subsidiary of Volkswagen AG.
“Clean electric mobility can only exist if the energy is clean as well. With the sonnenBatterie and the sonnenCharger, we are now able to offer the right solution to this issue. We are therefore delighted that a strong partner like Porsche Holding is implementing our vision of clean and affordable energy directly with us and that it also wants to offer access to more people,” says Philipp Schröder, Managing Director of Sales and Marketing at sonnen.
“MOON – this is the new brand from Allmobil, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Porsche Holding Salzburg – is aligning itself with charging infrastructure solutions to private and commercial customers and covers all brands of vehicle. In this way, MOON is making it possible to experience the entire e-mobility journey. We are delighted to have found a strong partner in sonnen for the realisation of our vision” says Robert Steinböck, MOON management.
The sonnenCharger is a world-first overall concept for electric vehicles. Thanks to the intelligent charging mode, a maximum share of self-produced solar power can be used for your own electric car. Furthermore, the electric vehicles can be integrated into sonnen’s virtual power plant which is comprised of thousands of sonnenBatteries. The storage pool can compensate for fluctuations in the power grid and renders the uptake of renewable energies from the sun and wind more flexible. In addition, thanks to the charging behaviour of the e-cars, which is beneficial to the networks, the sonnenCharger can serve to relieve regional local networks.
The sonnenBatterie is an intelligent high-tech solar power storage system for your own clean energy supply. For an average household, the sonnenBatterie can provide energy self-sufficiency of around 75 per cent of the energy required annually. The lithium iron phosphate cells used by sonnen are considered to be particularly safe and durable. As such, sonnen guarantees a level of performance of at least 10,000 cycles.
The sonnen group is the worldwide market leader for energy storage and operator of the largest energy sharing platform. As one of the fastest growing companies in Germany and Europe, sonnen has received numerous international awards for its technology. In a ranking of the “Top 50 Smartest Companies 2016” by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), sonnen was listed alongside Amazon, Facebook and Tesla. Investors in the Bavarian company include the US technology corporation General Electric. sonnen already supplies over 120,000 people globally with energy. The sonnenCommunity is an online network based on the blockchain idea for sharing self-generated energy.
