Phaesun Off-Grid News - February 2016

Solar Winter School 2016: Solar traders of tomorrow!
For the first time, the SRH University of Berlin started an advanced training course for solar entrepreneurs with the focus on Off-Grid systems. The course addressed solar installers from all over the world, mainly from countries with a poorly developed electricity grid. It  conveyed both technical and economic contents during the two weeks’ training programme in Berlin. This first course is now completed by a practical experience phase where the participants work in solar companies. Furthermore, the course includes an extensive online training programme. Phaesun engineer Russom Semere lectured on the system sizing of Off-Grid systems and solar  water pumps. The 12 participants came from 8 different countries and contributed their own experiences in lively and exciting discussions.

15 Years phaesunized!
Episode 2004/2005: Getting established

It was 15 years ago that the cornerstone for Phaesun was laid in Memmingen in the Allgäu. We use this anniversary year to tell about the Phaesun background and history episode by episode!
In 2004, the team in Memmingen and Asmara had already gained an international reputation. The company concept has been consolidated: In addition to the single components trade, Phaesun also concentrates on the execution of projects. The first experienced solar technician to join the Memmingen team is Jürgen Großer who is concerned with system sizings and installations. Apart from an increasing number of European and African distribution partners, more and more internationally renowned component manufacturers rely on Phaesun which e.g. leads to an exclusive partnership for the distribution in Europe with Sundaya. The team in Memmingen is constantly growing while storage capacities run out so the move to new office and store- rooms is due. For the first time in 2004, Phaesun takes part in the Intersolar exhibition in Freiburg/Germany. Please find pictures of the episode 2004/2005 on the Phaesun Facebook-page here.
