Solyndra Inc. says it has officially opened its European headquarters near Munich, Germany, in Holzkirchen, Germany, in response to the high demand in Europe for its thin-film PV systems.
As managing director and vice president for Europe, Middle East and Africa sales of Solyndra GmbH, Clemens Jargon will be responsible for overseeing the company's sales and service operations throughout European countries with active PV markets, such as Germany, Spain, Italy, Greece and France.
‘The commercial rooftops of Europe are an immense opportunity for the generation of solar electricity and are of growing importance with favorable incentive support in many countries,’ says Dr. Chris Gronet, CEO and founder of Solyndra. Designed specifically for commercial rooftop installation, Solyndra's thin-film PV system features proprietary cylindrical modules which collect more available sunlight and generate significantly more solar electricity from low-slope commercial rooftops than conventional flat-panel PV technologies, the company states.
