Easy calculation on your solar savings
ožujka 11, 2012
SONNENKRAFT has developed a new and easy calculator for photovoltaic systems that produces electricity as well as the solar thermal systems that produce hot water and room heating. The calculator estimates your monthly energy savings and generates a report that you can show to a professional installer afterwards.
“The new calculator has a self explaining interface, and you do not need to be an engineer or a professional installer to use it. In a matter of minutes you can calculate your potential savings in consumption and furthermore you get a recommendation of what kind of solution you should invest in,” says Magnus Wallin, Managing Director; SONNENKRAFT Solar Systems GmbH.
The calculator is easy to work with and without technical complications. At the same time you get a very accurate result because the calculator is location based and takes the weather conditions of your particular area into account. All you need to have ready is your current energy consumption, basic information about your existing energy system, number of people in the household, and if you wish to the solar solution to supply you with hot water, room heating or electricity – or all three of them.
“The technology behind solar energy solutions is very complex, but we want it to be easy to understand for everybody, because solar energy is an important source of energy both now and in the future,” says Magnus Wallin.

SONNENKRAFT Successful with International Focus

With the successful expansion to the United Kingdom and Switzerland SONNENKRAFT is now represented by its own companies in nine countries. Combined with the national partnerships in the remaining markets SONNENKRAFT has the most extensive market coverage in Europe. In the United Kingdom photovoltaic energy has had great success due to political focus and subsidy programmes, and now the time for solar thermal energy has come.
“In the United Kingdom the Renewable Heat Incentive programme for solar thermal energy is expected to be implemented shortly. This will boost the demand in the market. Especially because consumers already are familiar with solar solutions from photovoltaic energy,” says Magnus Wallin, Managing Director of SONNENKRAFT International.
In Switzerland it was recently decided to abandon nuclear power and become independent from it within 25 years. This decision has created a completely new market situation for alternative resources such as solar energy. Since solar energy is by no means foreign to Swiss consumers, the outlook is great.
“Solar energy in Switzerland does not have nearly the same level as in Austria, but it truly has the potential of Austria, the solar energy leading country of the world. Replacing nuclear energy with other sources means that there will be a great opportunity for our solar business. But it is also a very complex market because of the political system and multicultural character, so we will put in a strong effort in order to obtain our goals,” says Magnus Wallin.
