At the end of April, Peter Schrum, the main shareholder of the SUNfarming Group, and Holger Schönherr, SUNfarming project manager, were invited to the Energy Ministry in Albania to introduce SUNfarming Food & Energy concepts.
During this trip, SUNfarming Albania was founded, which will combine its business activities in Albania with local cooperation partners.
Minister Balluku was very interested and expressed her support for the realization of Food & Energy in Albania
For years, the SUNfarming Group has been committed to promoting children's, youth and competitive sport in canoe racing. The general meeting of the Potsdam homeland association of our managing partner Martin Tauschke voted by a large majority on 17 May for the implementation of the SUNfarming Direct Electricity Concept without own investment, together with a subsidy for the roof renovation from the one-off lease.
The financial possibilities of many sports clubs are just sufficient to secure the daily training and competition operation, also thanks to a high honorary commitment. For refurbishments due, there is usually no or not enough capital available. The SUNfarming Direct Electricity Concept significantly relieves the sports club - the one-off lease payments under the roof lease cover a large part of the roof renovation costs due and, in addition, reduce the electricity costs by 10% for the kilowatt hours consumed in the following years. The investment of the solar system takes over the SUNfarming, so that there are no costs to the clubs here.
"I am pleased that I can give my home club the opportunity of the SUNfarming Direct Electricity Concept with roof renovation subsidy via SUNfarming. With a planned installation of 475 kWp, we can provide the association with approx. 50% of the annual electricity consumption of approx. 60,000 kWh, which is 10% cheaper than the current procurement costs. The excess solar energy is fed into the public grid. The implementation of the project is planned for the second half of this year, "says Martin Tauschke, Managing Director of SUNfarming GmbH. There are still many canoe and other sports clubs not only in the state of Brandenburg, which face similar challenges. Of course, SUNfarming also offers the same concept to them - please contact us.
Martin Tauschke thanks his Potsdam hometown club and wins the silver medal at 200m in a one-kayak at the weekend - a double success for SUNfarming and the Potsdam Canoe Club.
"The long-term financing instrument with low capital costs enables us to expand our working capital financial leeway and drive our expansion in Germany and abroad. The fresh capital offers us the opportunity to further expand our portfolio of solar plants in Germany, Europe and Africa, "says Martin Tauschke, Managing Director of the SUNfarming Group and BPG IPP. "In particular, we will have the opportunity to further develop our innovative Food & Energy concepts and implement our first large-scale projects in the near future," continues Martin Tauschke. However, the SUNfarming Group will continue to focus on the realization and investment of classic solar systems with fixed feed-in tariffs on roofs and unused open spaces, especially in Europe. The company's own PV portfolio is also to be expanded by acquiring existing plants.
As every year, the interest in our products and projects has been great and our SUN farmers have had many concrete discussions with local and international partners from Europe, Africa and Latin America in order to initiate projects and to further develop current projects. In addition, contacts with suppliers and technical production partners and banks as well as international financing institutions were expanded. The DKB (Deutsche Kreditbank AG) and the ING Bank visited our stand, as well as the international banks FMO (Dutch Development Bank) and the World Bank subsidiary IFC, to discuss the development of relations in the financing of German and international projects of the SUNfarming Group.
Delegations, among others from Angola, Brazil and the Congo, learned in conversations with our expert project managers about the outstanding developmental possibilities of our product
"SUNfarming Food & Energy".
"The demand for on-roof PV systems for commercial and industrial plants with an installed capacity of less than 750 kWp has risen sharply. From December 2018 to February 2019, we completed 9.14 megawatts. Together with the ground-mounted systems with less than 750 kWp, we have a volume of approx. 20 MW in Germany alone, which we realized in our own investment in the last six months, "explains Martin Hinneburg, Head of Purchasing and Calculation.
"We are very satisfied with the fair days! In addition to existing customer care, we were able to make many new contacts, which will be very helpful to us on the path of internationalization of the project business. We will exhibit again at Intersolar next year, "says Martin Tauschke, CEO of SUNfarming.
