Wildpoldsried, 11th July 2019 - As part of the new DA/RE digital platform, sonnen’s virtual battery will help to shape the future of congestion management. In this, use is made of previously-untapped redispatch potential in Baden-Württemberg’s distribution networks.
Bayreuth, Wildpoldsried, 8 May 2019-Decentralised home storage batteries that are networked via a blockchain and integrated in the energy supply system can stabilise the power grid. The pilot project launched by transmission system operator TenneT and storage specialist sonnen in 2017 has now demonstrated this.
Shell* has agreed to acquire 100% of sonnen, a leader in smart energy storage systems and innovative energy services for households. This follows an investment by Shell in May 2018 and means that post regulatory approval and completion sonnen will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Shell.
