We have extended our range of services: from now on ADLER Solar also offers Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management (EPCM). PV projects from 750 kWp upwards will be managed from A to Z under the supervision of our PV experts. Contrary to the standard EPC, EPCM is limited to steering the project and construction management – meaning there are no further margins on reselling, components or subcontractor services.

In this case, ADLER Solar as experienced PV full service provider acts as the overall project leader while the client is in charge of sourcing required materials as well as subcontractors directly. During this phase, ADLER Solar will consult the client and oversee all rendered third-party services going forward. At the end, our certified PV experts will also accompany the final inspection of the lot plus ensure that your PV system is without fault and corresponds with state of the art technology.

Our EPCM services at a glance:

      • Planning – design planning, yield assessment, coordination with project partners (e.g. network operators), detail planning and definition of service specifications
        • Consulting Contract Management – consultation in re definition of requirements / subcontractor assignment of complementary services, consultation in re purchase agreements for PV components and support with contractual negotiations
          • Project and Construction Surveillance – construction management and quality assurance, overseeing delivery of subcontractors, coordination of commissioning, approval of PV system according to DIN EN 62446

          ADLER Solar has established itself as an experienced service provider within the PV industry since 2008 and brings comprehensive expertise concerning Engineering, PV System Construction, Project Management and Construction Surveillance to the table. You as a client on the other hand will have the security of engineering liability for planning services.

          “A convincing argument for EPCM – and ultimately your ROI – is cost efficiency. Due to the project enterprise’s direct procurement, the EPC margin on components and subcontractor services is waived, thus you save approx. 10% of the realisation cost of a PV project. Plus – next to substantial market acumen – we can support you with contacts to various subcontractors and suppliers”, adds Gerhard Cunze, Executive Partner at ADLER Solar.

          Should you have any inquiries in regards to EPCM, our Head of Engineering Consulting, Falko Krause, is waiting to answer your inquiries.

          Forum Neue Energiewelt in Berlin: Expert Lecture by Sönke Jäger on Friday

          As part of the 18. Forum Neue Energiewelt which takes place November 16/17 in Berlin, Sönke Jäger, CTO of ADLER Solar will share insights and findings within the framework of the overall topic „Quality of up and running PV systems“. During his presentation on Friday 17, he will introduce the results of a recent evaluation of the ADLER Solar modules data base, underpinned by an analysis of 40,000 modules built between 2008 and 2015.

        • The session starts at 10.00 AM.

          What is the quality of currently up and running PV systems, what kind of revenue can be generated and how can you measure it? What kind of case studies and statistics are there regarding the operation of PV modules? Which were the relevant serial errors and what the causes triggering an outage? All this and more will be revealed within the context of four expert lectures, followed by a Q&A session.

          ADLER Solar supports the fair – Germany’s leading conference for an innovative power industry – as a gold sponsor again this year.

        • Sönke Jäger and his team are looking forward to seeing you there!


          Solar Asset Management Europe: Lively exchange and trade insights

          Last week saw the „Solar Asset Management Europe“ in Milan which we supported as a gold sponsor. The trade show revolved around the topic of Optimising PV Systems. Overall, our team was very satisfied with the participation in this international industry event. “Solar Asset Management Europe is an ideal sounding board to mingle with European peers. Especially regarding the topic of Repowering one of our core competencies – we had extremely interesting talks and gained new insights during those two days”, is how Gerhard Cunze, Executive Partner at ADLER Solar, summarised the trade show.

          Repowering was also the key topic at the roundtable discussion joined by Gerald Wotruba, Senior Consultant at ADLER Solar. Next to a general introduction regarding various aspects influencing yield and costs of repowering projects, a successfully completed project in Germany served as a reference. During the following Q&A session, detailed technical solutions using new products as well as adhering to county-specific rules and regulations were explored.


        We look forward to hearing from you!
