IBC SOLAR, a leader in photovoltaic (PV) systems, will be attending the PV EXPO 2015, Japan’s largest international exhibition for the PV industry. From February 25 to 27, the German solar expert presents its services at a joint booth (E27-5) with the Japanese company Yokohama Kankyo Design (YKD). Besides, IBC SOLAR has the honour to send a keynote speaker on behalf of the German Solar Association for the trade show’s technical conference.


As a strong PV player with a long tradition in the Japanese market, YKD has proofed to be the ideal partner for IBC SOLAR. The cooperation includes project development as well as EPC (Engineering, Procurement, and Construction) services.


The successful cooperation between IBC SOLAR and YKD has lead into an partnership for project business in 2014, which offers benefits for both sides: YKD brings in a strong local network and long years of experience in the development and construction of PV projects under local business conditions. IBC SOLAR delivers the technical know-how, German engineering skills, and high-quality components. Thanks to its global experience of over 30 years, the German system integrator has profound knowledge in offering reliable and profitable large-scale PV solutions even with declining feed-in tariffs whilst meeting highest quality and engineering standards.


“We are really looking forward to being part of this important trade show in Tokyo,” says Udo Möhrstedt, founder and CEO of IBC SOLAR. “The trustful cooperation with YKD proofs once again that the philosophy of our company is matching the main values of Japanese business culture 100 percent. We aim at strengthening the successful relationships with our local partners to further promote our activities in the market and to drive forward our international growth strategy.” Next to strengthening its project activities, IBC SOLAR is presenting its services in distribution business for the first time in Japan.


At the PV EXPO in Tokyo, Jörg Marius Ebel, Board Member of the German Solar Industry Association (BSW) and Vice President of Public Affairs at IBC SOLAR, will address “Perspectives of PV Market, Policy & Grid Integration in Germany” in its keynote speech on February 27, 10 to 12 a.m.at PV EXPO Technical Conference.
