With its production facility opened in Carinthian Liebenfels in spring 2019, the company has the most technically advanced and potentially the most powerful production facility on the European continent. The facility is state-of-the-art, the largest production site for solar modules in Europe in terms of capacity and one of the most modern facilities in the world.

2018

Energetica invests in Europe’s largest and at that time the world’s most modern photovoltaic module factory. Future PV innovations are to be developed in an integrated research facility.

2017

Simon is the first self-assembly mini power plant with which anyone can produce electricity anywhere and at any time. Simon can be mounted on balcony railings or set up on walls and patios.

 

2016

Smartflower – the first all-in-one solar system for the garden – comes onto the market. Packaged in an extraordinary design, Smartflower follows the sun’s course using a GPS system which guarantees the highest possible energy yield.

2015

Energetica Group grows by welcoming the Kogler Estate Group.
