Martin has been working in renewable energy for over 10 years and has extensive experience in developing businesses in the sector, working with installers, developers, product manufacturers and distributors. Martin is also a director of Westmill Solar Co-operative. Since 2010, sonnen has sold over 13,000 sonnenBatterie systems around the world, with core markets in Germany, the US, Italy, Australia and the UK. The sonnenBatterie is an intelligent energy storage system which allows homes and businesses to use solar electricity day and night, whilst also enabling users to change the way that they manage and control their energy. Much more than just a battery, the sonnenBatterie combines technically robust, high quality hardware with cutting edge software intelligence through which sonnen can deliver a range of added-value energy services to consumers. In Germany, sonnen has launched the sonnenCommunity where consumers become producers, and sonnenBatterie owners share their energy. The generated energy surplus of individuals is being fed into a virtual energy pool and being distributed to other members of the community anywhere in the country. In this way, clean energy can become affordable and easily accessible for everyone. The sonnenBatterie is future-proofed to enable the development of the sonnenCommunity model in the UK. sonnen are exhibiting at Clean Energy Live at stand number E26..
