ENVELON recently opened an automated facility that specializes in solar panel production at its headquarters in the Bavarian town of Hamlar.
The move increases ENVELON’s solar façade panel production capacity up to a total of 300,000 square meters per year. The move is also a significant investment in the Grenzebach Group’s headquarters in Germany – ENVELON has been part of Grenzebach Group, which has more than 20 years of experience producing photovoltaic systems, since 2021.
“We are proud of this forward-looking step,” says Grenzebach CEO Steven Althaus. “With its photovoltaic façades, ENVELON can make a major contribution to the energy transition in Germany, Europe and overseas. This will help effectively combat climate change, which is an urgent necessity for all of us – and set the course for the future direction of our company.”
The facility’s opening comes as demand for solar panels increases in China and the U.S. ENVELON says that increasing technical efficiency and expanding public funding are essential steps for the further development of this sector.
“In Germany, we still often only consider traditional roof-mounted photovoltaic systems,” says Hans-Peter Merklein, general manager of Grenzebach ENVELON GmbH. “But to transition to a sustainable energy and heating sector, we need to exploit all potential a decentralized energy supply offers.”
