It is made for off-grid energy production in remote areas, outdoor events, refugee camps or in case of emergency situations.
The SunZilla system combines four unique features: it’s open source, portable, modular and easy-to-use with a plug-and-play approach.
The Energy Kit can be chosen and adapted according to your needs.
SunZilla’s technology is openly available for download. However, the platform is still dependent on proprietary components. Let´s join forces! Help us to open source all included parts.

Pick your energy kit, plug together the modules, and SunZilla is ready to be used without the need for any external help.
SunZilla modules fit perfectly on a standardised Euro pallet. They can be stacked and easily transported by one person.
SunZilla makes you independent from the need to purchase fuels and removes any interdependence from existing grid infrastructure. So you don´t have to go searching for the next petrol station.
SunZilla is your deaf buddy. He is completely silent and does not produce any noise!
Our ambitions go well beyond energy generation, as we envision a range of applications for the SunZilla system (such as water purification, cooling, heating, and telecommunications). We plan to build an open source development community for modules that will make these applications possible.
We want to enlighten people by providing a modular micro-energy solution using an open-source model. We want to decentralize and democratize the energy production and consumption to make people less dependent on the existing unsustainable system.
|With a fully charged battery, equalling conditions of full sunlight radiation, the following application examples demonstrate the flexibility of the SunZilla system:|
|Charging 120 mobile phones||Unlimited :)||￼ 8h|
|Powering 2 fridges with a capacity of 160l||Unlimited :)||> 100h|
|Powering 2 halogen floodlights||Unlimited :)||6h|
|Powering 1 portable cooking stove||Unlimited :)||3h|
|Providing illumination for 20 toilets/showers, or a 3,000m pathway||Unlimited :)||8h|
|Powering a submersible pump with a capacity of 2,000 l/h||Unlimited :)||15h|
|Powering 10 desktop computers with satellite communication||Unlimited :)||10h|

Leonie finished a master’s degree in industrial engineering at the TU Berlin, with a major in energy and materials management. Vivien, Joscha, and Jochen studied renewable energysystems at the TU Berlin. Laurin acquired a master’s degree in electrical engineering at the TU Berlin.
Mutual trust, deep friendships and interdisciplinary working methods have been put to test throughout many volunteer projects on the education for sustainable development, that altogether have proven a healthy well-being of our team. Together we enjoy a wonderful time, which we believe, is reflected in the quality of our purposeful projects. It is an affair of our heart (It is our vision) to shape a sustainable future through creative and committed actions that form the financial basis of our subsistence.
