Previously, Steinberg worked for several years as a senior international sales consultant at Solarpraxis AG in Berlin. He has worked in sales for various renewable energy technology providers since 1995. “Thanks to dynamic increases in population and economic growth, the MENA region is experiencing a rapid surge in the amount of energy being consumed, which makes it an ever more interesting location for solar energy,” explains Steinberg. “Our local presence and comprehensive market knowledge make us an important partner for customers all over the world looking to become active in the region. Given its geographical proximity to Europe, the market is particularly attractive to European companies.”
