Software company, Solarschmiede, is expanding this month, having hired three new managing directors. Rudi Haas will be taking over the engineering department. Solarschmeide says he was instrumental in setting up the department in the last few years. Harald Zeich who was previously active as a developer and project leader at the company. His department develops individual software and license programmes to plan solar energy systems. Finally, Felix Schneider, sales director of the Munich-based company since 2009, will become head of management and thus stands shoulder-to-shoulder between the software and engineering departments. The new management has long-term experience from both photovoltaics and software development.
Solarschmiede consider this to represent a logical step for the continued expansion of the company following positive development in the last few years. Solarschmiede plans to expand its portfolio, including services in every step of a solar plant’s life cycle – from yield reports to commissioning with thermography to performance assessments. In particular, sales will become international for custom software and licensing programmes. For this purpose, Solarschmiede will be exporting its services and software solutions not only to Europe, but also to China, India and the USA.
The previous managing directors and company founders Mike Zehner and Nicolas Karg will remain with the company. They are resigning in order to dedicate themselves completely to software development and the scientific fields of photovoltaics at Solarschmiede.
