KOSTAL Solar Electric's aim is to supply our customers with innovative and smart solutions for PV inverters. To safeguard this today and in the future, Werner Palm will focus on business development and new trends in the solar industry from 1 April, 2018. This step means that Werner Palm will continue to have a significant influence on the development of photovoltaics at KOSTAL, as he has done over the past 11 years building up KOSTAL Solar Electric in Freiburg. On 31 March 2018, Werner Palm will hand over his duties of managing KOSTAL Solar Electric to Dr. Manfred Gerhard, who is also responsible for our parent company in Hagen in the same position.
