Innovation through research
As early as in 1999, KACO new energy launched one of the first series-manufactured inverters without a transformer. This made KACO new energy a pioneer in the field of transformerless inverter technology, which yields higher degrees of efficiency. Another example of the company’s innovative power is the early introduction of three-phase monitoring. This method ensures multiple measurements, thus preventing unnecessary inverter disconnection from the grid.
Investments in research and development are key requirements for KACO new energy to maintain this position. Therefore, KACO new energy has established designated research teams in Kassel, Germany, and Neckarsulm for the further development of inverters up to a power class of 100 kW, as well as a team in Seongnam in South Korea for the development of solar inverters of higher power classes.
Committed to mankind
KACO new energy wants to allow the less privileged people in this world to share the company’s success. We are engaged in different projects aimed at people – directly and personally. We do this because we are of the conviction that it is a human imperative. If we are all linked by a sense of mutual responsibility for one another, then we will make life on this planet richer and more liveable. First and foremost for those among us who are blamelessly trapped in living situations that they often cannot overcome with their own strength.
A few of the organisations and projects that we support:
- “Target” – Organisation led by Rüdiger Nehberg that seeks to stop female genital mutilation
- “Große Hilfe für kleine Helden” (Big Help for Little Heroes) – paediatric clinic foundation in Heilbronn, Germany
- “Peter Maffay Stiftung” (Peter Maffay Foundation) – assistance for traumatised children from around the world
KACO new energy is also committed to engaging in political work that furthers the use of photovoltaics. The company invites politicians for regular plant tours and to exchange views. The Senior Management takes part in panel forums and engages in public political discussions.
KACO new energy’s company culture is a very special one. All employees participate in the company’s profit. The company offers free organic food in winter and free soft drinks in summer. Regular foot-races take place, in which company members train for marathon runs. In addition, all employees are invited to work out in the in-house gym for free.
