Sonnen has launched its 4.6kW sonnenBatterie 10 product in the UK and Ireland following its initial launch in Germany last year. The battery offers a modular design, allowing for it to be expanded from 11kWh to 22kWh, with the possibility for expansions of up to 198kWh for small businesses or homes with larger electricity needs. Lithium-iron-phosphate is used for the sonnenBatterie 10, the same as its other sonnenBatterie offerings. Wenzel Brühl, director of European Markets at sonnen, described the system as “more than a battery”, stating it is “a smart high-tech solution” that is well-proven and reliable, stating it will help homeowners store energy from existing solar panels and help future proof as demand increases with the addition of electric vehicles (EVs) and heat pumps.
