A strong team for climate change
As general contractor or general coordinating contractor, we develop holistic energy concepts for municipalities and companies. The integration of photovoltaic systems on roofs or in open spaces enables sustainable regional value creation and decentralised supply. The locally anchored communal energy projects contribute a great deal to the understanding and acceptance of the energy transition and the further expansion of renewable energies among the population. Founded in 2009, we now employ almost 120 people
at four locations. In Traunstein (headquarters), Grabenstätt, Munich and Hamburg.The company is not only a planner and installer, but also an investor and operator of large-scale photovoltaic systems. Climate change is the greatest challenge facing humanity today. We are actively addressing this great challenge with our daily work. Investments made today in buildings and industrial plants will characterise energy systems in 2050.
