The company Sunlight is designing an autonomous and fully controllable electric power system that uses Renewable Energy Sources, photovoltaic and wind. The system will be able to monitor and control the inverters that are used, the operation of the batteries, the Renewable Energy Sources and it will have the ability to optimize the energy management.

We also had the chance to visit the production line and we learnt about the production of the batteries that are made for military purposes.
