According to the company, the Birmingham-based office will focus on the distribution of photovoltaic components, in addition to the construction of both rooftop and ground-mounted solar systems.
Jens Schnoor, head of the components and systems division, will take on the role of managing director. He comments: "The British market is of particular interest to us: the feed-in tariffs are attractive, there are a number of large open spaces and the hours of sunshine are comparable to Germany."
He goes on to say that the company is hoping to have completed its first large-scale open space projects by the middle of this year. Furthermore, it is planning to "significantly" expand its distribution operations.
Gehrlicher Solar, which also has subsidiaries in Brazil, France, Greece, India, Italy, Spain, South Africa and the U.S., has been selling photovoltaic components through selected partners in the UK for around two years.
