New name, improved concept.

The first alumni meetings, now under the name IBC Solar Training & Networking Event take place on 4th May in Johannesburg and Cape Town. As many of our alumni especially appreciate maxx’ connection to the PV industry, we have decided to assign the alumni meetings to our new wholesale company IBC Solar. Even though there is a new company, Kinesh and Alex from the old maxx wholesale team still take care on the alumni in South Africa. Like before, there will be meetings on the PV Manager, latest SMA components like the new Sunny Boys, new legislation like the PV GreenCard by SAPVIA and many more topics!

maxx-solar academy and IBC Solar still work together closely so that we can benefit from each other’s strengths and make these advantages accessible to our alumni.


As the academy is growing in the whole of Southern Africa, we are also planning to extend the alumni meetings to the new locations Namibia and Zimbabwe! Our partners there, Young Africa Namibia and Solsquare and Sunergy in Zimbabwe are well established in the PV industry and have interesting topics to share. We will keep you updated on all events.
