Deeply rooted – widely branched

KOCO AG was founded in 2010 as a prime partner for corporates, municipalities and households for all questions concerning clean energies. We consider ourselves as an energy design firm, which analyses the demands of its clients in depth, then converts the findings into recommendations for action and ultimately realises resulting projects through its own holdings and partners. Customised photovoltaic and energy storage solutions in Germany and abroad are part of KOCO AGs range of services as well as integrated systems for data communication, heat pumps, co-generation units and the life long maintenance of all installations.

The main concern of KOCO AG is to contribute to the energy turnaround in Germany and globally – to push it forward.

From the very beginning, conservation of resources and material efficiency played an important role in his operations. When he founded KOCO AG in 2010 he fulfilled his long held vision of using his entrepreneurial experience in the area of clean energies. By founding and investing into additional start-up businesses in the renewable energies sector, he wants to contribute and push further climate protection as the primary goal.
