Sustainable Energy Closes Multi-Megawatt Supply Contract with Prosol Energy Storage Journal

Sustainable Energy Technologies Ltd announced that it has closed on a previously announced multi-megawatt agreement with Prosol Invest Deutschland GmbH (“Prosol”) to supply inverters for Prosol’s Sonnenbatterie ( residential and commercial solar energy management system.

Prosol is the market leader in Germany, with market leading distribution channels, including 15 German regional resellers, four leading European energy and power supply companies, and one global electronics company based in Japan, each of which is branding the Sonnenbatterie line of products.
Commented Christoph Ostermann, Managing Director for Prosol. “We expect to maintain our position as German market leader and a ~40% market share based on a strong distribution network and our superior product, which is trusted by our customers and OEM partners, including market leaders, RWE, E.ON and Kyocera.”

“We are partnering strategically with Sustainable Energy because it has the best “smart grid” energy storage inverter in the market; and because of Sustainable Energy’s commitment to innovation and quality, which are also core values for Prosol.”

Sustainable Energy’s patented technology seamlessly connects all low voltage batteries to the power grid in a single, bi-directional conversion step, eliminating the complexity and component count needed with conventional high voltage solar inverters. Unlike other low voltage inverters, the Company’s inverter has been designed from the outset to meet tough European smart grid connectivity standards (VDE 4105) and is able to do so with conversion efficiencies that are superior to any product in the market.

Commented Michael Carten, CEO of Sustainable Energy: “We are excited about our partnership with Prosol. Sonnenbatterie is a sophisticated consumer product which optimizes the advantages of our low voltage inverter to achieve cost and performance results that are unmatched by competitors. This is an important milestone for Sustainable Energy as we shift our focus to the energy storage sector.”
The first Sonnebatterie products using Sustainable Energy’s inverters will be rolled out to the Prosol distribution network later this month and launched at the Inter-Solar trade show in Munich, Germany from June 19-21, 2013.
