The company Next2Sun GmbH was founded in order to introduce a new type of photovoltaic (PV) system concept. Our team has several years of experience as project developers and plant operators. As long-standing players in the energy turnaround, we are excited about the abundance of possibilities and the almost global applicability of our new concept. Our team operates from locations in Berlin, Freiburg and Merzig.
Together with the parent companies Ökostrom Saar GmbH and Solverde Bürgerkraftwerke Energiegenossenschaft eG, we have brought the Next2Sun mounting system to a marketable stage. Both companies have been successfully developing projects in the field of renewable energies for many years. Next2Sun combines the industry experience and know-how of both companies. The passion for innovative technologies and the ambition to develop a completely new building block in the renewable energy sector is what distinguishes our team. Using innovative energy systems, our experienced employees make a very important contribution to a sustainable energy supply and a clean and liveable environment with commitment and sound expertise.
