KACO new energy, one of the leading global PV inverter manufacturers, has appointed a new Sales Manager for the North of the UK and Northern Ireland. Carl Cook, who has enormous sales experience and an outstanding track record, takes over the sales activities in the aforementioned areas. His work will focus in particular on the further expansion of local business.
”Carl Cook boasts an outstanding knowledge in the solar sector and has excellent connections too. He is a dynamic and result-driven sales professional with years of experience in the growing renewable energies sector“, said Andrew Walsh, Country Manager of KACO new energy UK.
Prior to his move to KACO new energy, Mr. Cook worked for SolarMax as Key Account Manager for UK Channel Sales. Before that, from 2007 to 2012, he was Business Development Manager at Solarcentury. He gained further professional experience with PV marketing and sales at Hanwha Q CELLS.
“I am very glad to contribute to the continuous growth of the solar industry and the company’s significant expansion and brand presence in Britain,” said Carl. The UK has recently gone through a number of policy driven changes meaning that we truly need cost effective, yet quality made inverters and energy storage solutions. KACO new energy has a wonderful portfolio of products for our market.”
The EU is working to reduce the effects of climate change and establish the share of renewable energy. Recently both Portugal and Germany have succeeded in meeting almost all of their power needs by using renewable energy. The UK also has ambitious plans: For one week, between May 3 and May 9, more electricity was generated by solar energy than coal in the Kingdom. Last April the same was true for two days. Cook continues: “England and Ireland have quite favorable insolation values and good conditions for the solar industry. KACO new energy has a promising starting position on this market. Our customers and partners can rely on 100 years of pioneering inverter technology. 8 GW of inverter power sold world-wide speaks for itself”.
On a side note the UK team comments on the Brexit: “In summary, it is ‘business as usual’ – keep calm, keep the faith, and let’s see. Our clients believe that although it is an inconvenience, it will not deter them from buying our products. We are still going out to the market with a positive outlook.”
