"I am delighted that we were able to recruit Dr Dirk Haft, an extremely competent and experienced personality, to head up IBC SOLAR. This will help open up new perspectives for my IBC SOLAR. I am looking forward to continuing to support the company as a member of the supervisory board."
Dr Dirk Haft:
"Today, IBC SOLAR is one of the most successful internationally active solar companies. Udo Möhrstedt led the company for decades with great pioneering spirit. I want to carry this spirit forward in the company and steer it with agility through the coming times. I would like to thank Udo Möhrstedt and the entire IBC SOLAR team for showing their trust in me."
All signs point to growth in 2024
One of IBC SOLAR's plans for 2024 is to support its premium partners even more with the help of comprehensive digital solutions to make installations even easier. With the aim of growing faster than the market, IBC SOLAR is optimistic about the future.
"Photovoltaics can play all its aces in 2024: It is cost-effective, flexible in terms of size and location, storable and, above all, environmentally friendly. The high growth potential in Germany is not only reflected in the continuing interest in home solutions, but also in the growing demand in the commercial segment," explains Dr Dirk Haft, CEO of IBC SOLAR.
Udo Möhrstedt founded International Battery Consulting, or IBC for short. Later, it became IBC Solartechnik. As one of the pioneers, he thus laid the foundation for the development of solar energy in Germany.
The key players in the energy revolution are networking. Udo Möhrstedt and other solar contractors establish the "photovoltaic solar energy symposium" at Banz Abbey.
Together with colleagues, Udo Möhrstedt converted a total of five VW Polos to electric vehicles. The Electric Fox drove through Upper Franconia at a maximum speed of 105 km/h.
IBC Solartechnik releases the first solar modules under the name Megaline as their own brand.
IBC Solartechnik is given a new name and becomes a stock corporation. The company will operate as IBC SOLAR AG from now on.
The first in-house mounting system for pitched roofs, then under the name Megaline (now TopFix), completed the IBC SOLAR product portfolio.
The first solar park for locally resident citizens was established in Eurishofen in the Allgäu.
To check and ensure product quality, a dedicated open-air test facility was created. On an area of over 3,000 square meters, the modules undergo long-term tests under real environmental conditions.
Modules and mounting systems are evaluated and thoroughly tested in a unique and now independent test laboratory. With the tests in the PV test laboratory SUNLAB, IBC SOLAR continues its high quality standards.
Shortly after each other, the company first introduced a lead and soon thereafter a lithium-ion storage under the IBC SOLAR brand to the market. In addition, the first large-scale storage, in the form of a neighborhood storage, was put into operation.
In the Competence Center, IBC SOLAR offers its installation partners extensive seminars and webinars on innovations, regulatory affairs, products, planning, installation, and expert advice.
With its commitment to the United Nations Global Compact, the company has committed itself to report transparently on activities and to pursue the vision of a resource-saving and sustainable global economy.
40 years ago, Udo Möhrstedt started with a revolutionary vision at the time: He wanted to use the energy of the sun to generate electricity with IBC SOLAR. And we are doing this with a strong vision for the future: "We create energy autonomy & emission freedom through easy access to the infinite energy of the sun - for a world worth living in."
Founder and CEO Udo Möhrstedt moves to the supervisory board on 01 January 2024 and Dr Dirk Haft takes over as Chairman of the Board at IBC SOLAR.
