The contract starts on 1 January 2012.

The Hamburg-based solar expert green­tech and the pho­to­vol­taics spe­cia­list meteo­con­trol offer, as coope­ra­ti­on partners for Hamburg Energie Solar, an energy solution that is tailored spe­ci­fi­cal­ly to the requi­re­ments of public uti­li­ties. The agree­ment with Hamburg Energie Solar Betriebs GmbH includes both the manage­ment and the pro­fes­sio­nal moni­to­ring of the solar port­fo­lio of the energy provider for a total of 24 systems with almost 12 MWp of pho­to­vol­taic capacity, located on leased rooftops and free-fields in and around Hamburg. In the metro­po­li­tan region in par­ti­cu­lar, there are rooftop instal­la­ti­ons at loca­ti­ons such as Hamburg airport, Uni­ver­si­ty Hospital Eppen­dorf or the roof of the stadium of the St. Pauli football club.

Muni­ci­pal energy pro­vi­ders expect a pro­fes­sio­nal business manage­ment concept for port­fo­li­os that include both smaller rooftop systems and larger free-field systems. Our concept is aligned pre­cise­ly with these requi­re­ments and offers high quality and con­ve­ni­ent con­di­ti­ons”, says Ingo Rehmann, CEO of green­tech GmbH & Cie. KG. Dr. Henrik te Heesen, Director of Tech­ni­cal Manage­ment of meteo­con­trol GmbH, confirms this state­ment: “Based on our many years of expe­ri­ence in moni­to­ring and managing pho­to­vol­taic systems of all sizes, the concept of green­tech and meteo­con­trol allows Hamburg Energie Solar to rely on com­pe­tent and reliable partners. Regular main­ten­an­ce of all tech­ni­cal com­pon­ents and checking the resul­ting values ensure optimum per­for­mance and func­tio­n­a­li­ty of solar systems for their whole lifespan”.

At the signing of the service contract in mid-December 2011, green­tech and meteo­con­trol empha­sis­ed their interest in a con­ti­nued close coope­ra­ti­on. Both com­pa­nies intend to further develop and sell ope­ra­ti­ons manage­ment concepts jointly, espe­ci­al­ly for muni­ci­pal energy pro­vi­ders. Clients thereby obtain effi­ci­ent complete solu­ti­ons from a single source. The com­pa­nies expect to get sustainab­le client loyalty as well as a signi­fi­cant growth spurt out of this coope­ra­ti­on.
