Bernhard Voll, M.Sc.Eng.
After a successful career of 22 years in public utilities and the wind farm development industry Bernhard started his own consultancy firm in December 2008. Zephyros, the Greek God of the West Wind was chosen as name representing the roots of this company in Wind Farm Development. After the first very successful years, Bernhard decided to change the company structure and business model from a Consultancy Firm to an Energy Solution and Asset Optimisation Service Provider better reflecting the core competencies, mission and passion of our business. This also allowed for the addition of Energy Efficiency and Electrical Safety Services, a core business area of Blue Diamond Energy Solutions. Back in Germany we now - due to time restrictions - focus on renewable energies, especially wind and solar PV.
