The EUROSOLAR (European Association for Renewable Energy Association) in Bonn has been giving the 1994 Solar Award at the European and German level. The award is given to communities, businesses, associations, organizations, architects, journalists and private individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the use of renewable energies imparted.

The Intersolar Award 2013 went to Galaxy Energy!

The Intersolar Award 2013 went to Galaxy Energy!

An innovative overall concept of course the family company Galaxy Energy felt addressed.

Over the last 10 years Galaxy Energy has presented its products at the Intersolar, developed new products and is one of the leading innovation drivers this sector.

To apply for this award on an international level with the in awarded energy concept, was obvious, but to be one of the finalists we didn´t expected, states the managing director Georg Schöll. “We know that our inroof system especially our company building is a great thing but the competition never sleeps. To assert against multi-billion dollar companies looks more like David against Goliath.”

Thus it was even more surprising when on 16 June 2013 the jury-consisting of professionals of several institutions and industry insiders – named the Galaxy Energy company building as the best solar project of Europe 2013.


The absolute saving of fossil energy, a roof which supplies electricity, warmth for heating and cooling systems and daylight through its transparency are only a few of many other matters which convinced the jury.

Unlike many other innovative products presented of the fair, this project has been realized and has been in use for years already. Also this separates the Galaxy Energy building from the other applicants.

“We are proud of our building but first of all I have thank to my family and our staff, because they substantially contribute to realize ideas”, told Georg Schöll while receiving the Intersolar Award 2013.


28th symposium of photovoltaic solar energy 2013:

We have been certified for our new company building!

As every year, the hard core of the solar industry met in Bad Staffelstein, but only one could win the innovation price 2013.

Around 900 experts from the field development/research came together at the 28th symposium of photovoltaic solar energy. Among them were many manufacturers of PV-components and any number of experts from institutions and universities. The whole week long, all the knowledge could be exchanged during the exhibitions, presentations and the following discussion forums.

The PV-market becomes increasingly more difficult, this can be deduced from the political decisions and the high competition amongst each other. This conclusion was not only confirmed by the organizer but also by every single speaker. It´s not surprising that despite the first-time decrease of participants or exactly because of this reason, more companies participated in the innovation competition. Instead of usual 9 – 10, this year arrived 19 applications to be awarded by the elite of this industry as most innovative company.

Necessity is the mother of invention! This is nothing new for Galaxy Energy and the only reason how you can survive on the market is to work on innovations and sustainable products.

On March 7th 2013, the time had come, for the12th time the innovation price were rewarded from the ranks of experts (the jury with representatives of OTTI, Fraunhofer ISE Freiburg, TNC Consulting AG from Switzerland and others). During the laudation it was pointed out that the first place never has never been so coveted and at the same time so clear. The overall concept and the well thought system application down to the finest detail had convinced the jury. With this introduction, Manfred Schöll received the innovation price 2013 for the Galaxy building. Manfred Schöll, after announcing the award: „We are proud to hold against very big competitors with the help of our drive and the Swabian inventiveness.“

“We are on the right way and make a significant contribution as role model, to make the PV industry to be more innovative, qualitatively, beautiful and above all environmental friendly.” told CEO Georg Schöll proud after being awarded for many prizes. “This gives us the motivation to become even better to develop and selling, meaningful and beautiful things, because functionality and appearance must not stand each other’s way up but need to blend into each other. For this philosophy stands Galaxy Energy also in the future with its products and developments. “So the words of praise from the management board at all participating employees at the plant!
