 Joerg Gaebler
Job Title
Principal Advisor Indo-German Energy Programme

Joerg Gaebler is an energy specialist who holds a Master of Science in Renewable Energy from the Technical University of Vienna, and dual citizenships of Germany and the US. In 2009 Gaebler went for the second time in his life to the US to establish his solar business as CEO of Wagner Solar, a solar pioneer with 35 years of history. “At that time you could see no solar panels on any roof, neither commercial nor residential” he remembers. But in 2008 the US government launched a special promotion law for solar and the boom started. And Gaebler and his company became part of it by establishing 85 large scale projects with an investing volume of US$ 8.7 million. So what should be the next challenge? International consultancy in project management? This is how he decided to lead the Solar Team in GIZ India.
