Managing Director, Dutch Sustainable Group
My name is Edwin Arends and I am managing director of Dutch Sustainable Energy group (DSE group).
I’m 44 years old and studied mechanical engineering in the Netherlands. After a career as constructor and engineer for a large water treatment company I started in 2009 with solar. Because of the advanced knowledge in the solar field I am considered to be a solar expert in the Netherlands.
With our former company Arends Techniek we installed more than 3.000 grid connected solar systems in the Netherlands.
In 2013 we received the Dutch Gazelle award from the financial times as being the fastest growing company in the Netherlands.
In 2012 we founded DSE group (Dutch Sustainable Energy group) to started with PV solar installations in Africa. The first installations were built in Egypt.
Since end 2015 we started to be active in Ghana and have installed a number of solar systems already. Also the largest roof top solar project we have installed in Tema Accra.
