Global thinking, local production:
Fixing energy access the Berlin way

SunCrafter is a German technology startup with a background in solar engineering. Working as solar technicians, contracted to run quality controls on industrial solar farms, we have been astounded by the quantity of solar modules that go to waste over solely economic reasons.
As it became cheaper to exchange a whole set of modules instead of repairing the one that failed, we decided to counter this unhealthy trend. Through our cutting-edge technology we strive to:

Provide reliable, affordable
off-grid energy solutions

Reuse existing resources to fight
energy poverty and climate change

Debugging off-grid solar

Off-grid solar power is the number one hope for the global mission to power the world without consuming the earth. However, to make this concept applicable to everyone, some things need to be fixed.

"Off-grid solar is way too maintenance-heavy"
Our innovative technology allows us to strap solar power off all breakable parts and components. Thus, we reduce operational costs to a bare minimum, making our systems suitable for last mile customers.

“Investor-oriented strategies do little to achieve the goal of universal electrification”
Meeting the expectations of financial investors can quickly turn a social business’ focus from those customers most in need to those most easily served. To avoid this pitfall, SunCrafter is making sure revenue streams are diversified through a hybrid business model approach, covering overhead costs in Europe instead of African or Asian territory.
"Powering the world means contributing to climate change"
Powering the 1 billion people worldwide in an eco-sustainable way does not only require zero-carbon generation technology, but also carbon neutrality in production and disposal of those technologies. SunCrafter retrofits decommissioned solar panels, giving them a long-lasting second life.

Refining the business

SunCrafter makes off-grid solar electrification simpler, cleaner and more affordable than it has ever been. But while our goal is to electrify the very remotest communities, earning money from the poor not only compromises the cause – it would be unsustainable in every way.
This is why we decided to build a framework for a sustainable and organically growing business elsewhere, creating a hybrid business model catered to cross-subsidize its components.

“As we are operating a running urban business, we gain not only experience, but confidence, security and valuable partnerships.”
