Hamburg — Skopos Impact Fund acqui­res a stake in JES GROUP GmbH, a company specia­li­zing in solar energy. With the help of this invest­ment, JES GROUP intends to acce­le­rate the expan­sion of rene­wa­ble ener­gies in private house­holds and at the same time realize new inno­va­tive solu­ti­ons for the fight against climate change.

The aim is to become the market leader in photo­vol­taic instal­la­ti­ons and the most inno­va­tive energy service provi­der in Germany. In order to bundle the exper­tise, the JES GROUP will in future unite the indi­vi­dual compa­nies JES AG, HK Solar­tec GmbH, Solar Express GmbH, HL GmbH and Holtz & Part­ner GmbH as an umbrella company. With curr­ently more than one million square meters of occu­p­ied roof area in the B2B sector and 1300 reali­zed photo­vol­taic systems in the B2C sector alone in the last 18 months, the JES GROUP can alre­ady draw on a great deal of know-how in the photo­vol­taic sector.
