BSW-Solar: About us

With more than 800 member companies, Bundesverband Solarwirtschaft e.V. (German Solar Association) is the interest group of the German solar energy industry. Forming a strong community of companies, BSW-Solar acts as an informant and intermediary between business and the political and public sectors. It represents the common commercial interests of businesses within the solar energy value chain.

BSW-Solar exerts a decisive influence on creating and securing a suitable policy framework for stable growth, and thus on ensuring investment security throughout the solar industry. Our objective is to establish solar energy as a permanent pillar of a global energy industry.

BSW-Solar consists of the Board of Directors, which sets strategic guidelines and a frame for the work of the BSW-Solar Office - led by its Managing Director, Carsten Körnig. The Board is elected by the general meeting. Additionally, there are several working groups in which BSW-Solar members can actively participate to shape the work of BSW-Solar.
