Solar photovoltaic (PV) company Solarcentury has appointed Frans van den Heuvel as its new CEO.
He was previously CEO of Dutch solar photovoltaics company Scheuten Solar. He has also led ProxEnergy, a solar installation company and developer of smart-grid products and services.
The Dutchman brings more than 13 years industry experience to Solarcentury, which specialises in the design, manufacture and installation of solar electricity for buildings and solar parks.
Solarcentury chairman Jeremy Leggett said: "Frans... has led huge growth in exactly the markets Solarcentury is targeting: building-integrated and building-applied solar, plus solar parks. He joins us at a time when solar prices are falling fast globally, meaning substantial markets will open up in the next few years; as a McKinsey report highlighted only last week."
Mr van den Heuvel, CEO, Solarcentury added: "In this volatile industry, it is of major importance to continue to adapt to the ever-changing market situation. Although it is a tough time for many in the industry, there are also many opportunities."
