PV² Energie is a project developer specialized in photovoltaic roof and ground-mounted systems, and in the engineering of biomass. The company plans, builds, finances and operates solar plants on open spaces as well as on roofs of industrial, commercial, agricultural or public buildings. PV² Energie also has significant knowledge of the wind and biomass energy sector. In 2005 the two shareholding associates Chris Hannen and Phillip Küpper initiated project planning and execution of projects in the area of renewable energy. Thus, by the end of 2010 numerous solar and wind power stations had been erected. In March 2011 the two entrepreneurs founded PV² Energie GmbH. It was the vehicle for incorporating the growing business activities – both domestic and foreign – within the framework of a joint stock company (GmbH). Due to the huge potential of renewable energy in the Philippines, PV² Energie opened its subsidiary in Manila to bring German expertise into the country and cater to the growing local solar energy market. Since early 2014, PV² Energie started operating in the Philippines and has since developed solar energy projects for Philippine companies. With the opening of the Philippine subsidiary, Brenda Baylon joined the management team as shareholder and General Manager of PV² Energie Philippines Inc.
