The promotion of Sönke Jäger to the role of CTO also resulted in a restructuring within the sales team

Bremen, 31 May 2017

The German government’s amendments to the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) for 2017 have re-energised the solar energy sector. After a phase of stagnation, demand for photovoltaic plants is now once again on the rise. Alongside this new era of growth, the modules and BOS components used in PV systems are becoming ever-more powerful and complex – and the challenges faced by PV providers are evolving accordingly. To meet these developing needs, ADLER Solar has appointed Sönke Jäger as Chief Technical Officer, and has completed a management-level restructuring in the fields of sales, products and technology. The sales team has also been restructured, and is now split into dedicated areas of competence:

  • Services – managed by Claas Oltmann
  • Projects – managed by Ronny Hager
  • Consulting/sales strategy – managed by Falko Krause



„As we have expanded our offering to include repowering and plant construction, the complexity of our service portfolio has increased significantly. The creation of the new position of CTO is part of our strategy to tackle the new challenges we face, and will enable us to respond to the needs of our customers in an even more targeted way. An industrial engineering graduate and a certified specialist in photovoltaics, Sönke has been employed by ADLER Solar in various leadership positions since 2011, most recently as Technical Director of Engineering Solutions. His well-founded technical understanding, combined with his outstanding knowledge of all aspects of the PV sector and his commercially minded approach, make him the perfect choice for this new position. This step – together with the restructuring, which enables us to focus on specific professional specialisms within our sales team – will put us in a great position as the market grows“, explains Gerhard Cunze, Executive Partner of ADLER Solar.
