For distribution throughout Japan ANTARIS SOLAR is partnering with Tokyo-based PV company NRE. Contact person for ANTARIS SOLAR Japan is NRE’s CEO Tetsuro Uragami, an expert with strong background in photovoltaics and off-grid PV systems. Andrew Moore, ANTARIS SOLAR International Sales Manager, will oversee the overall growth of the ANTARIS SOLAR brand in Japan working alongside NRE.
The official launch of ANTARIS SOLAR’s activities in Japan was held at the PV Expo 2012, the renowned photovoltaics trade fair for the Japanese market.

Japan – High market potential and ideal conditions for use of solar power

Climate conditions in Japan are ideal for the use of solar energy. The country benefits from high energy yield per Kilowatt peak and has high demand for energy especially at peak times, for instance because of extensive use of climate control systems in office buildings.
Thus, ANTARIS SOLAR CEO Gerhard Steinebrunner regards Japan as a very promising and important market: “With our strong focus on quality testing and our market leading warranties on products and performance ANTARIS SOLAR has been successful in Europe, the US, the Middle East and Africa. We are excited to be able to offer our products now also on the Japanese PV market”, Steinebrunner says.
