Clean Energy Associates Expands in Europe as War in Ukraine Accelerates Demand for Renewable Energy

14 Jul 2022

Clean Energy Associates is continuing its expansion in Europe with the hire of Jörg Althaus, a leading solar engineer and longtime senior executive at TÜV Rheinland, to help lead its Engineering and ESG services practice from Cologne, Germany. 

Clients striving to buy the best solar and energy storage equipment while meeting zero-carbon and ESG milestones will benefit from Althaus' decades of technical, operations, and business experience in solar and energy storage, said Andy Klump, CEA's founder and CEO.

"We're thrilled to be able to welcome an internationally recognized expert such as Jörg Althaus to our team in Europe," said Klump. "The EU has always been a large renewable energy market, and continues to be a leader in zero-carbon energy. We've been investing in and building a very experienced team there for some time.

"In response to the war in Ukraine and sanctions on Russian oil, natural gas, and coal, we're seeing a further surge in demand for renewable energy, and fresh policies to support this buildout," Klump said. "Consequently, we're doubling down on our commitment to providing developers, utilities, and corporate clients with engineering services and the best support for their ESG policies, as well as the investment confidence in their supply chain decisions. CEA's strong reputation for supply chain security and quality assurance oversight has been the foundation for our strong working relationship for many European clients over the past 14 years, and we're pleased to extend our service offerings."    

CEA now has over 200 team members who support work in 65 countries.
