The Good Energy Company at Intersolar 2024 The future as an Independent Power Producer

Iqony Sens presents itself for the first time with an expanded business division at the world's leading trade fair for the solar industry


From project developer to one of Europe's leading producers of renewable energy: the newly established Renewables division of Iqony, the green growth area of the Essen-based STEAG Group, presented itself for the first time at Intersolar, the world's leading trade fair for the solar industry in Munich. On 1 June, the solar and wind businesses were merged to form Iqony Sustainable Energy Solutions (Iqony Sens).


"Combining our many years of experience and strong positioning in the solar industry with Iqony's wind expertise enables us to respond even more efficiently and effectively to the challenges of the market," says André Kremer, Managing Director of Iqony Sens and previously responsible for the solar business at Iqony. Joël Wagner, also Managing Director of Iqony Sens and previously responsible for the wind business, adds: "The aim of the new business unit is to utilise synergies across the entire wind and PV value chain more effectively and to increasingly position ourselves on the market as an Independent Power Producer (IPP) across all technologies.

Lively interest in reorganisation

The reorganisation met with keen interest from customers, partners and service providers at Intersolar. "As an integrated system operator and energy producer, we will develop and market even more projects for our own portfolio in future," emphasised André Kremer. In addition to project development, the generation of renewable energy and the supply of electricity to households and companies will then also take centre stage.

The Iqony Sens stand in Hall A4 was extremely well attended on both days of the exhibition. In numerous expert discussions, the Iqony Sens team was available to visitors for professional dialogue, current industry insights and technical questions. One of the main topics was the future of the solar industry and, in particular, the opportunities and challenges in the development of new business models.


Renewables join forces

Intersolar takes place annually as part of The smarter E Europe, Europe's largest trade fair alliance for the energy industry, at the Messe München exhibition centre. The focus is on renewable energydecentralisation and digitalisation of the energy industry as well as cross-industry solutions from the electricity, heating and transport sectors for an intelligent and sustainable energy supply. 

"It became clear at the exhibition that the industry is increasingly moving closer together across technologies. In addition to the specialist topics for solar, wind-specific aspects also played a major role - from asset management and system optimisation to services relating to the planning and marketing of green wind power," emphasises Joël Wagner. This increasing convergence of renewables, including battery energy storage systems, offers great potential and is an excellent basis for the new Iqony Sens.
