THE AEG BRAND: A RICH HISTORY, A BRIGHT FUTURE
A brand that made the history of energy In the late 19 th century, Berlin entrepreneur Emil Rathenau had an early intuition about the huge potential of electricity. He acquired the license to the electric bulbs invented by Edison, and founded a company which he then named “Allgemeine Elektricitätsgesellschaft” (General Electricity
Company), or “AEG”. It was 1887. Since then, AEG rose to become the largest German electrical company with a worldwide reputation. From the solar bulbs up to power plants, AEG became a leading brand for the production, distribution and application of energy with industrial and domestic appliances, greatly contributing to the electrification process worldwide. It was however in 1907 that an imprint was given to AEG which was meant to last until today. The architect and designer Peter Behrens, the father of industrial design, revolutionized the approach to the company’s production. AEG electric appliances were designed to make the life of
consumers comfortable, and conceived as innovations to anticipate their needs, all while offering a distinctive aesthetic experience. As a brand, AEG rose to embody the concept of “perfect in form and function”– an ideal that shapes AEG products also today.
AEG: pioneer in solar PV energy
Innovation was always at the core of the AEG brand. AEG pioneered technological research and application in industries as diverse as railway, power supply, radio and television. Always an idea ahead, the company was also the forerunner of the photovoltaic era. The solar technology developed by AEG-Telefunken factories in Wedel enabled the launch of Azur, the first German satellite, in 1969; and it was AEG solar modules that, in 1983, equipped the largest solar park in Europe in the island of Pellworm, in the North Sea – still in function today. And the Hubble telescope, which has been exploring the depths of the universe for 30 years now? It was first powered by AEG solar blankets.
A brand shaping the future of solar energy
Since 1994, the AEG brand and its rich tradition are powered by Electrolux Group in Sweden. True to the brand’s nature of anticipating consumer needs, Electrolux expanded the reach of the AEG brand into the solar PV energy landscape.
In 2015, Germany-based Solar Solutions Group was entrusted with the production of cutting-edge solar technology for commercial and for private use.
