Deutsche Kreditbank (DKB) Visits SUNfarming Agri-Solar

On May 22nd, 26 advisors from DKB Bank visited the SUNfarming Agri-Solar Training and Research Center in Rathenow.

These bankers, agricultural experts, and technical engineers are specialists from Germany’s largest bank for renewable energy financing. Due to new legislation, particularly the Solar Package 1, they showed great interest in Agri-Solar.

Edith Brasche, Managing Director for SUNfarming Project Development, and Peter Schrum, founder and main shareholder of the SUNfarming Group, presented the innovations and research facility in Rathenow. They explained the unique features of Agri-Solar with glass-glass modules and SUNfarming's rainwater distribution techniques.

Since farmers are supplied directly by SUNfarming for the construction of privileged 2.5-hectare APV systems, this business field becomes an attractive financing area for DKB Bank with EEG security.


Intersolar Europe 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.
