As a global renewable energy group, we work closely with our clients and partners to consistently invest in and develop high quality renewable energy assets. Since entering the market in 2013 we have been focusing on expansion in domestic and international locations to initiate the development and construction of solar parks.
We believe that solar PV is the most important renewable energy source and is the key to delivering sustainable investments that provide, promote and protect what matters most. The potential is great and investing in solar infrastructure is economically sound. We are proud to be a part of the international effort leading the way in the clean energy transition to shape the world for future generations and reduce our carbon footprint.
The WIRCON group has more than 60 employees at its German locations in Mannheim, Berlin and Saarbruecken as well as in Sydney, Australia.
WIRCON was founded in 2013, and due to economic difficulties in 2019, the Hopp family became the company’s sole shareholder. With a strong shareholder and a motivated team our recovery process was successful. Our current business strategy is developing forward-looking solutions, out of our headquarters which were relocated to Mannheim in 2020.
Today WIRCON is a stable and successfully acting company backed by its strong project pipeline, with our primary field of activity based across Europe. As a company located in the Metropolitan Region Rhine-Neckar we are also focusing on implementing projects in our home region and throughout Germany. Developing solar parks is more important than ever since the climate and energy crisis is continuing to surge. Solar parks are producing necessary renewable energy in the steps towards change. Together we are now traveling the journey towards a future-orientated energy supply and we enable a secure and sustainable future. Be part of it.
Clean, renewable and affordable solar power is becoming ever more important. Our solar parks are already taking on a pioneering function for a climate-neutral future.
Dr. Jörg Gerike
CEO WIRCON GmbH
We combine our wealth of knowledge from over 960 MW of projects with our commitment to delivering excellence and certainty long-term across our comprehensive service offering. Our long-standing, experienced team works with a growth and entrepreneurial mindset, smoothly bringing together expertise across all industry components from consulting, early stage development, asset analysis, construction management, asset management and operational services.
With a strategic view to the future, we realise our projects in a structured manner at selected locations, whilst working closely in coordination with all stakeholders. We are proud of our growing portfolio, which has seen us realise over 960 MW of installed capacity to date. Among our successful worldwide projects and the construction of several solar parks in Germany, we have led the installation of the world's largest TESLA electricity storage system, located in Gannawarra, Australia. In addition to this, in June 2020 we obtained the planning permission to move forward with the build of the largest solar project in England, “Cleve Hill”, and amongst Europe. The construction will commence in 2021 with an installed capacity that could provide enough affordable and clean electricity to power over 91,000 homes in the local area.
We are focusing on solid growth in Germany in addition to the international market we operate in. Our headquarters in Mannheim works in close cooperation with our subsidiaries based in the UK, USA and Australia.

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase orders or enquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption program.

If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
However, keep in mind that data transmission over the Internet can always be subject to security gaps and therefore complete protection of data against access by third parties is not guaranteed in every case.

We maintain publicly available profiles on social media platforms. The individual social media platforms we use are listed below.
The purpose of our social media profiles is public relations, i.e. to inform customers about our offers, products, campaigns, promotions, company news and to interact with visitors to those social media profiles, as well as to answer corresponding queries. However, our social media pages can be used purely for information purposes without actively providing or collecting personal data.
In addition, the social media platforms offer the opportunity to leave a wide variety of content such as videos, images, public messages and comments (posts) on our company profiles. In the event of unlawful or inappropriate posts and content on our presence (this includes, among other things, posts and contents that violate or infringe the law, hate comments, lewd comments (explicitly sexual content) or attachments such as images or videos, as well as violations of copyrights, personal rights, criminal laws), we are jointly responsible with the platform operator for their deletion. If communication is addressed directly to us (personal private message, letter or email), the operator has no possibility of intervening.
Social media platforms generally analyse your user behaviour comprehensively when you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g., “like” buttons or banner ads). When you visit our social media pages, several actions are triggered. Specifically:
The platform operator is solely responsible for operating their entire IT infrastructure, complying with the data protection regulations and maintaining the user relationship with you if you are a registered user of their social network.
If you are logged in to your social media account and visit our social media page, the operator of the social media platform can assign your visit to your user account. Under certain circumstances, your personal data can also be recorded if you are not logged or do not have an account. In this case, data is collected mainly via cookies that are stored on your device or by recording your IP address.
The personal information collected can be used by the operators of social networks to create user profiles. These store your preferences and interests in order to show you personalised adverts on social media and elsewhere. If you have an account with the social network, interest-based advertising can be displayed on any device you are logged into or have logged into.
Our social media pages are part of our public relations work and are intended to ensure the broadest possible presence on the internet. In addition, we have a legitimate interest in responding to queries from our users and visitors and thus maintaining and promoting customer satisfaction. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may have different legal bases, which must be specified by the operators of the social media platforms (e.g. consent within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR).
When you visit one of our social media sites (e.g. Facebook), we are jointly responsible with the operator of the social media platform for the data processing operations triggered by this visit. You can assert your rights (to information, rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, data portability and complaint) both against us and against the operator of the respective social media platform (e.g. against Facebook).
Please note that despite our joint responsibility with the social media platform operators, we have limited influence on the data processing operations of the social media platforms. Our options are largely determined by the corporate policy of the respective provider.
The data which we collect directly via our social media pages is deleted from our systems as soon as the purpose for its storage no longer exists, you ask us to erase it, you withdraw your consent, or the purpose for data storage no longer exists. This does not affect mandatory statutory provisions, in particular retention periods.
We have no control over the storage period of your data that are stored by the social network operators for their own purposes. For details on this, please refer to information provided by the operators of the social networks (e.g. in their privacy statements, see below). Stored cookies remain on your device until you delete them.
All public posts that you publish on our social media sites generally remain in the timeline indefinitely. You can, of course, delete your posts again if the option is given. As already described above, we reserve the right delete any comments or content deemed to be illegal or inappropriate.
