Back in March, we reported on the launch of a new web portal, ProjectForum4t2: “the world’s first professional online marketplace for trading solar photovoltaic (PV) projects”. Now the portal’s developers have announced new enhancements to the service.
The ProjectForum4t2 online marketplace for solar PV projects is designed to “bring clarity and structure to the currently complicated market”, say its developers. To this end, they have recently made changes to the site, expanding the regional focus and modifying the offer structure.
After successfully concluding its market launch, the first months of the professional online marketplace for solar projects were characterised by the development of business relationships with users, posting and processing of initial offers, and the fine-tuning of processes.
Part of this enhancement process has involved expanding the regional data. Now, in addition to vendors from core-markets such as Italy and Germany, project developers and general contractors from France, Spain, Greece, and Bulgaria are discovering the advantages of the online marketplace. “We are surprised about how fast the concept of an efficient and transparent commercial platform has convinced potential customers from other European PV markets,“ said Karsten Kreissler, Founder and General Manager of ProjectForum4t2. ”However, we apply the same diligence when checking the access conditions of market participants during our regional expansion efforts, which means that we cannot accommodate everyone.”
Differentiation of offers
As requested by many users, from now on the company will also determine commission payments based on the type of an offer. “As a basic principle, there is no cost to the vendors when using the online marketplace," said Dr. Gerwin Dreesmann, Senior Partner of ProjectForum4t2. “The commission payments paid by the buyer and based solely on success will be adjusted to the actual transaction values, which will result in reduced commission payments for acquiring mere PV project rights.”
The main motivation of the ProjectForum4t2 team is to develop photovoltaic energy in the medium-term to a standard solution in the global energy supply using successfully implemented projects.
The team of ProjectForum4t2 has many years of proven experience in the development, planning, and implementation, as well as financing and management, of photovoltaic power plants. The team behind ProjectForum4t2 has worked for well-known companies, such as the Conergy Group, SunEdison and BP Solar. In addition, many team members also have experience working in small startups with a strong focus on project development.
Project Forum 4t2 GmbH is based in Hamburg, Germany.
