Our contribution to climate-friendly energy generation
The largest source of energy available to mankind is the sun. Year after year, a radiant energy of about 1.5×1018 kWh or 5,461,000 exajoules hits the earth’s outer atmosphere. This is approximately ten thousand times the world’s current primary energy consumption (2018 approx. 580 exajoules).
With our subsidiary sbp sonne, we have been active in the field of renewable energies for over 35 years. We design, develop and implement innovative solar technologies – and thus make a significant contribution to climate protection. Today, sbp sonne is one of the most experienced engineering companies for solar technology worldwide and manages specialized and innovative development projects worldwide.
