Who are we?

Goldbeck Solar is an international company specializing in the turnkey construction of commercial photovoltaic systems on open space and commercial roofs. Our solutions are reliable, affordable and profitable thanks to our team’s long years of experience.

Goldbeck Solar is a young company that emerged from the merger of two established players in the field of the energy industry. With the vision of a clean energy supply, the entrepreneur Joachim Goldbeck founded the Goldbeck Solar GmbH as a subsidiary of the Goldbeck Group in 2001 and the Solarnet GmbH for special projects. In this structure, solar PV systems were installed on industrial roofs, landfill bodies and open spaces in ten countries.

Buoyed by the positive global developments since 2016 and supported by the Paris Climate Agreement, Solarnet GmbH focused its attention on Latin America and the ASEAN countries, while Goldbeck Solar concentrates on the development of the European market.

Now in 2018, both companies are combining their dynamism and competence, their expertise and experience as global players in the photovoltaic industry as Goldbeck Solar GmbH.
