Continuity and Visionsince 1977
The merger of skytron® energy with Wuseltronik, a 1977 spin-off of Berlin Technical University, has evolved into three decades of unique expertise in the use of solar energy. It's not without reason that we pride ourselves in being "pioneers of energy".
Pioneering spirit, continuity and long-standing experience, all combined with our vision for trendsetting power plant technology – this was and is our motivating force and has driven the development of our integrated monitoring and control system for photovoltaic power plants.
To date, more than 7.3 GWp of solar power generation installed worldwide relies on our monitoring and control solutions.
Upwards trend continued!
2016 Liberta Partners, a Multi-Family Office, is the new owner of skytron® energy. The aim is to support skytron energy with its product portfolio, services and software so that skytron energy cannot only maintain but expand its position as the worldwide technical leader in its sector. skytron energy has installed monitoring and control systems in more than 1,000 plants with a total capacity of 7.3 GWp.
2014 First Solar acquires skytron® energy – skytron energy continues to operate under its globally known brand as a subsidiary of First Solar. The acquisition opens a wealth of prospective growth and development opportunities for both companies to provide innovative, reliable solutions and expertise to power plant owners.
2012 We celebrate 35 years of our pioneering spirit with more than 3,3 GWp of installed capacity
2011 AEG PS acquires the remaining shares in skytron® energy, with skytron energy staying an independent business unit. skytron energy thus profits from AEG PS' global footprint. More than 2 GWp of installed capacity relies on skytron energy.
2010 skytron® energy GmbH enters into partnership with AEG Power Solutions, enabling the expansion of our range of services offered to provide service, maintenance and components for photovoltaic power plants across the world
