Germany-Based Sonnenbatterie Opens Atlanta, Georgia, Research And Development Hub

Sonnenbatterie, a Germany-based market leader for smart energy storage systems, opened its new research and development facility in Atlanta, Georgia. The new 5,000 sq. ft. space will house up to 15 engineers who will expand Sonnenbatterie’s current array of next generation smart energy storage devices for homes and businesses.

"Sonnenbatterie has come to symbolize performance, design, and value in Europe, and we aim to develop that same reputation here in the United States," said Boris von Bormann, CEO of Sonnenbatterie USA. “Our new Atlanta R&D facility gives us a unique platform to stay close to our American customers and partners, and deliver to them custom tailored products that are best suited for the US market.”

The new Atlanta facility will be the center for product development, prototyping, and testing for the U.S. market. Sonnenbatterie took over the space from inverter developer SolarMax.

In Europe, Sonnenbatterie is a market leader in Germany and has channel partners in Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Luxembourg and Slovakia. In 2014, the company began operations in the United States in 2014 where it is actively recruiting channel partners to serve as Sonnenbatterie Centers. Recently Sonnenbatterie signed an agreement with Sungevity, the largest privately held solar company in the U.S., for supplying it with storage systems.
