Founder and CEO

Gerhard Rabensteiner completed his studies of business administration in Graz, Austria, and has been working successfully in the industry since 1985. After 15 years at Philips Electronics, he has been dedicating his career completely to solar energy for more than 16 years since then. Six of these years were spent as the managing director of GREENoneTEC Solarindustrie GmbH, where he made a decisive contribution to making the company into one of the leading international providers in the solar thermal energy market.

In 2006, Gerhard Rabensteiner was a cofounder of KIOTO Clear Energy AG. Since then, he also served as member of the board of the company, most recently responsible for the photovoltaics division. As co-founder (in 2010) and managing partner of KPV Solar GmbH, he has continued the exciting path of solar energy and soon expanded the firm to become a leading international EPC contractor. During 2016 Gerhard enhanced the merger of KPV Solar and PV-Invest. He and his family have also made private use of the power of the sun for renewable energy generation for already more than 25 years.

Gerhard Rabensteiner is a solar energy manager by conviction.
