SOLARWATT, premium supplier of photovoltaic systems, is continuing its expansion strategy and expanding its sales to Northern Europe. This includes UK/Ireland, Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Denmark . In recent months, cooperation agreements with sales partners have been launched in all countries. SOLARWATT is already active in Great Britain with a growing team. In the Scandinavian countries, the company also plans to have its own sales personnel to support partners on site.

In addition to the proven glass-glass modules and the EnergyManager, MyReserve batteries are also sold in these regions. "In Northern Europe, the demand for efficient photovoltaic solutions continues to grow. People in the Scandinavian countries in particular are very environmentally aware. Sweden, for example, wants to generate one hundred percent of its electricity from renewable energies as early as 2040 - and they are well on their way to achieving this goal," says Detlef Neuhaus, CEO of SOLARWATT. According to Neuhaus, electric mobility is already an important driver in these regions to focus more on renewable energy sources.

Installers‘ certifications are already in progress

Since last year, the Dresden-based company has been building up an extensive partner network in the new markets and holding roadshows and training courses on site. In Northern Europe as in all markets, only those who are certified for the installation of SOLARWATT products are allowed to install and commission them. The Dresden-based company is consistently focusing on the sale of complete photovoltaic systems for its expansion. "Because the sun does not shine as frequently in the UK, Ireland, and Scandinavian countries as in southern Europe, it is particularly important here that all components of the PV system are perfectly coordinated and work together efficiently. This is one of our greatest strengths. And that's why we as a system provider see great opportunities here, which we want to capitalize on with a strong team," says Neuhaus.
