Intersolar 2016 is over

High visitor interest in future-oriented SUNfarming projects

Intersolar Europe 2016, the largest solar fair of the world, is over. The enthusiastic and continued interest in our products was repeatedly underlined at the trade fair and our SUNfarmer have led many informative discussions about our sustainable, future-oriented projects. The SUNfarming seized the opportunity, not only to present its business to a wide audience, but there were also many concrete business talks for current and future projects with customers and suppliers as well as banks, investors and politicians.

Thomas Silberhorn, State Secretary to the Federal Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development, informed himself in an interview with Peter Schrum, founder of SUNfarming group, on the outstanding developmental chances of our newest product “SUNfarming Food & Energy Project”.
Hans-Josef Fell, former Member of the German Bundestag and together with Hermann Scheer “father” of the EEG, was a guest on our booth. Many years of political commitment in the conversion of conventional energy to renewable energy, connect Hans-Josef Fell and Peter Schrum in his capacity as Honorary President of the BRM (Federal Association for Renewable Mobility e.V.).
With the DKB we have a longstanding and successful cooperation. As a reference project DKB showed this year the SUNfarming solar park in Friedland/Germany, with a total capacity of 23.1 MWp and an investment of 35.1 million euros.
The board of DKB Tilo Hacke and the head of department “business customers” Matthias Etzold, spoke with Martin Tauschke, CEO and co-founder of SUNfarming, on the issues of project development and financing in Germany on ” physical structures ” in 2016 and project financing for clean and cheaper solar power supply for municipalities by SUNfarming solar systems.
“We are very satisfied with the exhibition days! Besides existing customers we were able to make many new contacts that are very useful for us on the path of internationalization of the project business. We will be back next year”, says Martin Tauschke.

SUNfarming Food-and-Energy Plants

Energy, Food and Jobs worldwide

With the PPP-Project “Food-and-Energy” we enhance our efforts not only to ensure for energy security, but also at the same time our solar-microclimate-greenhouse is ensuring a sustainable food supply with a water consumption that is kept to a minimum. Food and Energy Plants are a keydriver in combating unemployment in ressource poor areas, in crisis area and developing countries.


One example:
1 MW Food-and-Energy Plant, erected on 1,8 ha in Southern Africa or the Middle East, delivers in 1 year:
490 000 kg of local produced food, 1700 MWh renewable solar energy, 83000 tons of CO2 savings, 75-100 sustainable jobs and trainings facilities.

Food-and-Energy Plants
SUNfarming is building Food-and-Energy Training-Centres
Students, teachers and community members are trained in intergration of sustainable PV-technology and breeding, modern irrigation, harvest, packaging, marketing and sales in local markets. As a first project SUNfarming is supporting their partner company Alensys AG with the PPP-project “Food-and-Energy” in cooperation with the DEG (Deutsche Investitions- und Entwicklungsgesellschaft mbH) in South Africa

Our goal:
SUNfarming is in contact with countries like Namibia, Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon, and Pastikan to develop projects with an average size of 10 MWp. With the experience of more than 400 MW realised PV-projects worldwide, thereof 70 MW owned by SUNfarming, together with german and international state bodies we certainly have an important contribution in the structural development in developing countries and crisis areas:
– energy security with renewable energy
– food production with water-saving drip-irrigation (hydroponics)
– sustainable trainings and jobs

EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT THE ENERGY TRANSITION. WE ARE MAKING IT.
