ENcome Energy Performance, a pan-European vendor- and constructor-independent service provider for photovoltaic installations, now also expands to the United Kingdom. Different to other countries such as Italy and Spain, ENcome will not be represented by its own subsidiary in the UK, but by its partner Southern Solar, whose team already covers large parts of the country. This approach enables an optimal service for the installations in the UK by professional technicians already from day one.
Southern Solar are specialists in the design, installation and maintenance of solar electrical systems in the South of the UK for more than 10 years. They have built a strong reputation through their high quality and professionalism. This professionalism and experience has also convinced ENcome to partner with Southern Solar as their local partner for maintaining photovoltaic installations in the UK, which will significantly expand ENcome’s portfolio in the near future.
First major frame contracts with renowned UK customers have already been signed at the beginning of 2014. While ENcome coordinates and controls monitoring, reporting, maintenance schedules and failure analysis, the team of Southern Solar ensures the well-known rapid response and repair times on site. But that’s not all. “With the market expansion to the UK ENcome is confronted with new laws, regulation and requirements from authorities. The experts from Southern Solar ensure that we are prepared for those challenges already upfront”, explains Dr. Robin Hirschl, CEO at ENcome Energy Performance GmbH, as an additional advantage of this cooperation. Southern Solar on the other hand benefits from ENcome’s investor tailored monitoring system, ENcome Energy Monitor, ENcomes’ years of international experience regarding the servicing of large photovoltaic installations and the intense contacts to all major component manufacturers worldwide.
With the first Agreements in the UK ENcome expects a photovoltaic portfolio growth of about 50 MW within the next months. Within the first half of 2015 it is expected to operate well above 100 MW on the UK market.
ENcome Energy Performance was founded by a team of three managers that bring together decades of experience in renewable energy business. Well skilled engineers ensure the best yield for every renewable energy park in any grid environment. ENcome offers all services along the asset lifecycle with one single point of contact. Together with subsidiaries and a partner network ENcome covers its service portfolio across Europe.
