With more than 12 years of experience in lithium and a top R&D team, Sunlight entered the lithium market with Li.ON FORCE, the first line of “smart” lithium batteries for electrical Industrial Vehicles (eIVs). The company’s strategic focus on lithium technology is linked with the launch of a new Research and Development Center, headquartered in Athens, with 50 top scientists. The Institute will be focusing on developing lithium and new hybrid energy storage products,seeking to establish the company’s leading role in technological advancements in the global energy storage industry.
Following a sustainable business profile, Sunlight implements the Circular Economy model , whilst operating the most advanced lead acid recycling plant in Europe. The plant, which is one of just two recycling plants to be EMAS Certified, the highest standard of environmental quality in Europe, recycles up to 95% of a lead acid battery with minimum environmental impact.
Through collaboration with its customers, Sunlight supports renewable energy systems around the world, from hospitals, universities in Nigeria and isolated villages in Burundi, to large corporations in Europe.
