As part of its expansion drive, glass-glass solar modules company Solarwatt has announced key personnel changes and the establishment of a UK office and warehouse. The setting up of Solarwatt Technologies Ltd by the German photovoltaic systems provider follows its recent success and reflects its strong ambitions in the UK market.
Daniel Adamsbaum joins Solarwatt as Sales Manager, North; Neal Goddard is Sales Director for the region, working with Pol Spronck who will be Managing Director of the UK company.
“We have worked hard to get to this point and it’s great to confirm we are making big progress” said Mr Spronck. “Building on existing sales collaborations in the UK, Solarwatt is particularly keen to partner with other premium installers across the UK.”
Neal Goddard added that it’s been a huge summer for the company with the announcement of the Battery flex storage system it has developed with BMW, underpinning the versatility of its products for EVs as well as energy for home and work.
According to the industry association SolarPower Europe, the UK is currently considered the third largest photovoltaic home storage market in Europe with a storage capacity of 38 MWh. Last winter alone, total PV capacity also rose to more than 14 GW – enough solar power to supply around three million households. Nevertheless, the experience of Germany, with 53.0 GW in 2020, shows there is still a lot of room for installed capacity growth in the UK, across solar PV, storage and other associated technologies within Solarwatt’s offering.
Despite the effects of coronavirus, Solarwatt achieved sales growth of 100 percent in the UK last year. As a result, a new warehouse in England will soon be unveiled, further improving Solarwatt’s ability to provide a fast and efficient delivery service to its growing UK customer base.
Solarwatt’s UK office will be located in Surrey, close to the M25, M3, M4 and Heathrow Airport.
In July Solarwatt announced the supply of complete PV systems for 15 schools for Essex County Council to reduce emissions, helping the education authority to meet UK net-zero targets and bring significant cost savings so as to invest in other facilities and services.
