Sonnenbatterie has selected Ideal Power's power conversion systems for commercial energy storage solutions.

Sonnenbatterie will integrate Ideal Power’s power conversion systems with its commercial system. The systems use Power Packet Switching Architecture (PPSA).

Ideal Power’s PPSA is claimed to enhance the size, cost, and reliability of electronic power converters. It is capable of scaling across various industries such as solar photovoltaic generation, electrified vehicle charging, and commercial grid storage.

Initial products are due to be delivered this month. The first product from Sonnenbatterie for the North American market will be based on 30kW and 24kWh solution.

It creates energy storage systems from 24kWh to 240kWh. They will be used to reduce demand charge for commercial and industrial customers.

Sonnenbatterie USA CEO Boris von Bormann said: "The U.S. market is ready for Sonnenbatterie’s easy to install, reliable and cost-effective energy storage system.

"We have diligently researched power conversion partners and Ideal Power’s technology proved to be the most efficient and reliable available and since it is much smaller and lighter than other power conversion systems we evaluated, it made our choice easy as our Sonnenbatterie systems are designed and engineered with exceptional quality."

Ideal Power senior vice president of business development Ryan O’Keefe said: "We are delighted to work with Sonnenbatterie, the recognized leader in delivering the latest storage solutions in Europe.

"As they make their entry into the North American market where peak demand management is a growing issue, Ideal Power was the clear choice to integrate with their system."
