August 26 (Renewables Now) - Downstream solar company Conergy is looking to change its focus from being a solar EPC contractor to an owner and operator of solar energy systems, and for this reason has rebranded its business.

On Friday the company changed its name to Blueleaf Energy, which represents “the color of a solar cell and the process of photosynthesis.”

Conergy is a company with a 20-year history during which it installed nearly 2 GW of solar capacity around the world. In the Asia-Pacific region alone, it developed, financed and delivered roughly 500 MW of solar plants.

“We will continue to build upon our global experience in development, finance, delivery and O&M but we are now capable of so much more,” commented CEO Marc Lohoff. He added that the company is now engaged in “a whole raft of solar applications and business models” such as traditional grid-connect solar, energy storage, floating solar and commercial and industrial (C&I) rooftop photovoltaic (PV) systems.
