NEWCOMERS summary case study report: The sonnenCommunity

NEWCOMERS Project Grant agreement No. 837752

The sonnenCommunity was launched in 2016 as a virtual community of all sonnen GmbH product or service customers. The sonnenCommunity aims to enable members to ‘declare independence’ and make traditional energy suppliers ‘obsolete’ by covering up to 100% of their electricity needs through a combination of self-consumption and community supply coordinated as a ‘virtual power plant’. To achieve this sonnen GmbH links and controls the decentralised and privately-owned storage units of those members who chose to participate via their SonnenVPP software. This also helps to stabilise the grid.
