Die Energie für Morgen. JETZT! Dieser Kernsatz hat für unser Unternehmen zentrale Bedeutung. Wir wissen: Die Energiewende – die unverzügliche und vollständige Umstellung der fossilen Energieerzeugung auf eine CO2-neutrale Energiewirtschaft – ist unvermeidbar, wenn wir die Lebensgrundlagen für zukünftige Generationen sicherstellen wollen. Mit unseren Produkten und Dienstleistungen auf dem Sektor der Erneuerbaren Energien ermöglichen wir Bürgern – egal ob Privatpersonen oder Gewerbetreibenden – die Teilhabe an ebenso ausgereiften wie profitablen Lösungen für die regenerative Energiegewinnung. Dafür stehen wir. Und dafür stehen wir ein. Für unsere Kunden – egal ob Privatpersonen, Bürgergesellschaften, Energiegenossenschaften oder Landwirte und Gewerbebetriebe ­ – sind wir ein erfahrener Partner, der ein EE-Projekt sicher und zuverlässig beherrscht. Wir stehen als Rat- und Impulsgeber bereit, der stets über Änderungen von regulatorischen Rahmenbedingungen informiert ist und die daraus resultierenden wirtschaftlichen Potentiale nutzbar macht. Wir streben eine langfristig erfolgreiche Zusammenarbeit mit Kunden und Partnern an, die auf gesellschaftlicher Verantwortung fußt und sich auf die Überzeugung stützt, dass nachhaltig erfolgreiche Projekte dringend nötig sind, um die Energiewende herbeizuführen.

The energy for tomorrow. NOW! This core sentence is of central importance for our company. We know: The energy turnaround – the immediate and complete conversion of fossil energy production to a CO 2 -neutral energy industry – is unavoidable if we want to secure the basis of life for future generations. With our products and services in the renewable energy sector, we enable citizens – regardless of whether they are private individuals or traders – to participate in solutions for regenerative energy generation that are as mature as they are profitable. For our customers - regardless of whether they are private individuals, civil society, energy cooperatives or farmers and commercial enterprises - we are an experienced partner who can handle an EE project safely and reliably. We are available as advisors and initiators who are always informed about changes in the regulatory framework and make use of the resulting economic potential. We strive for long-term, successful cooperation with customers and partners that is based on social responsibility and the conviction that sustainably successful projects are urgently needed to bring about the energy transition. The idea that drives us is a life in balance with natural resources and a CO 2 -neutral economy in which everyone uses only renewable energy. We see our mission in promoting the energy transition effectively and profitably for everyone, and we provide interested citizens with a sophisticated range of services. Your advantage: Our experience and our competence. We are proud of what we have achieved since our inception in 1995. Right from the start, we design citizen-oriented RE projects and drive the energy transition forward. Our projects are well-planned, seriously calculated and designed with foresight. Projects that we tackle have high chances of being implemented because we have learned what is important. In technical, commercial and legal terms. We behave prudently and risk-aware. Only after a comprehensive analysis do we give the "go" for a project. For example, in the case of upcoming roof renovations, we meticulously determine all risk factors that could impair the operation of a PV system on this roof in the long term. Our "healthy" self-interest is always to consistently lead projects to success. Also because we are involved in numerous projects ourselves. We think through projects in every phase and have all the necessary professional resources in our company to master technical and planning challenges without conflicts of interest.

My name is Glorymar Hernandez, but I prefer to be called “Glory”. I was born in the capital of Venezuela, Caracas, and grew up amid the crowds of the city, the tranquility of the Andean mountains and the joy of the Caribbean coast. A mixture that has taught me to enjoy wherever I am, that aroused my curiosity to know the world, and that has helped me to adapt, with relative ease, to changes. I have a degree in Philosophy, my research works are in Philosophy of Language. Since 2019 I have been working as a Spanish teacher. I decided to start teaching my mother tongue thanks to my experience learning other languages. I had the opportunity to live for a year in Ireland, where I went to learn English and, currently, I am in Italy, where I have had the opportunity to learn Italian. These experiences allowed me to realize that, although seeking perfection when trying to “speak like a native” is the ideal, what really matters is being able to communicate, make ourselves understood and be open to the experience of knowing other cultures and understand that there are many different points of view. Professionally, I have had the opportunity to work in different contexts such as banking, outsourcing consular procedures, and teaching at university level. The biggest lesson I learned from these experiences is that I am not an office person. I prefer to own my time and have the freedom to work wherever I am. For this reason, I have decided to dedicate myself to teaching Spanish online and to enter the digital world. I consider myself a very curious and versatile person, that is why in my free time I enjoy handcrafting (such as sewing or knitting), volunteering, being in contact with nature, and trying to learn new things, like playing the guitar. Regarding my geographical preferences, the beach and the mountains are my main refuges, because I can escape from the noise of the city and connect with myself. That is why I would like to be able to live with my husband on a mountain, not far from the sea.

Soltech group is a total supplier of energy and solar cell solutions. With oversight over the entire value chain, from development to installation, we can transform all types of properties to more sustainable and self-sufficient energy producers. We have grown to become Sweden’s leading total supplier provider of integrated energy and solar technology from nothing more than an idea that was born at the Royal Institute of Technology. We develop, sell, install and improve everything from roofs and façades with fully integrated solar cells to charging posts and batteries. By being accountable for the entire value chain – from development to installation. But our challenge far transcends national borders. Hoping to have the greatest impact on climate, we have expanded to the place where the problem is greatest — China. Here we are helping the country’s factories replace traditional energy sources with renewable energy.Soltech Energy’s investment in China is conducted in Advanced Soltech Renewable Energy (Hangzhou) Co. Ltd., ASRE, its wholly owned local subsidiaries and Longrui Solar Energy (Suqian) Co. Ltd. The business model consists of financing, installing, owning and managing solar energy installations on customers’ roofs in China. The customer does not pay for the plant, but instead undertakes to purchase the electricity that the plant produces during a 20-year agreement. Ongoing revenue comes from the sale of electricity to customers and from various forms of grants per produced kilowatt-hour (kWh) of solar electricity. The goal is to have an installed capacity of 1000 megawatts (MW) in 2023, which is fully connected to the electricity grid in 2024. Soltech has high goals and will achieve these to a large extent through an aggressive acquisition strategy that will take the Company out into the Nordic region and eventually also into Europe. Soltech will focus on companies within solar energy as well as roofing, façade, battery / charging and electricity industries as well as companies with smart energy solutions for control and steering.

My name is Luis Guillermo Castro Martin. I am a philosopher specialized in philosophy of mind and language. In particular, I am interested in the nature of consciousness, and the way in which we experience and interpret the world. I started my studies at the Central University of Venezuela in 2006, where I obtained a bachelor’s degree in philosophy (2011) and a master’s degree in logic and philosophy of science (2015). In 2012, the university offered me a position as a professor of philosophy and I taught several courses there until 2017, when I enrolled in a PhD program at the University of Genoa, Italy. I have also published several papers in philosophy journals and participated in various international events. In 2020, while writing my PhD thesis, I realized that I had been immersed in philosophy for too long and decided to use my experience to rejoin the real world. In my years studying philosophy, I have learned many things, but the most important is that the world is what we make of it, there is no ultimate truth, no final word. We create our reality. Knowledge has somehow separated us from others and nature, perhaps it can also reunite us. Although I was born in Venezuela, my family is a blending of different nationalities and traditions. I have lived and studied in different countries, which are all part of who I am and what I want to be. My actions define me, not my nationality or my origins. I do not believe in borders or limits; they are only in our minds. The sensation of not belonging can be liberating, once we realize that, by not belonging somewhere, we belong everywhere. I speak three languages (Spanish, English, and Italian) and I enjoy learning from other cultures, as well as transmitting the values of my own. I also enjoy music, sports and nature. I am the author of “Fragments of Mind” on Substack. A space for thinking outside the box, while discussing philosophical matters.

Taking our past into the future with Carolina Reviglio! Carolina enjoyed a carefree childhood in the Piedmont countryside. With many cousins and friends, the passion for culture was instilled from an early age. Surrounded by beauty and art in the family mansion Cimena, expertly curated by her grandmother namesake, Carolina. On the paternal side of the family, her Venetian grandmother was equally influential. The unique character and rich culture of Venice, epitomizes Carolina. While travelling often, she feels most at home, in the isles of Venice. Schooled in Italy and the United States, lived in provinces throughout the length of Italy, Carolina considers herself truly Italian, with an international vision. “My country is rich in heritage, but poor in the pocket to keep it so. It saddens me to see so many buildings in a state of disrepair.” She has honed the skills of renovation and interiors of historic buildings, since 1987. Learning by trial and error, spurned on by failure and ultimate success, Carolina has grown and prospered. Now is the time to give back. Helping artisans of all disciplines to find work and ply their trade with pride. Matching projects to professionals and vice versa. As Heritage Doyenne, Carolina’s primary contribution to this unique initiative, is to encourage the participation of Heritage Ambassadors. This cause is yet another open avenue, to take our past into the future. By intertwining culture and heritage, to create more synergy. “Only once we fully understand where we come from… and truly appreciate our heritage… can we imagine a fabulous future filled with the richness of our past. Life is ours to design!” ~ Carolina Reviglio
