About us

EMPO-NI off-grid solutions was founded in 2008 and is specialized in development and production of PV-powered MPP controlled solar equipment and entire systems for off-grid applications strictly MADE IN GERMANY.

The headquarter is located in the capital of North- Rhine Westphalia equipped with an excellent infrastructure and is well connected with local and international high-tech companies and universities.

EMPO-NI is extending its range of PV-solar powered, battery less motor drive solutions for productive use and highly robust battery charging equipment.

EMPO-NI develops standard and customized off-grid solutions. Our experienced engineering team has large expertise in power electronics, control techniques, DSP FPGA and software engineering as well as analogue and digital circuitry using latest CAD, simulation and rapid prototyping toolchains. Time-to-Market, reliability of products and a strong focus on customer centric operations form our DNA and create our customer’s satisfaction through our delivered products.

EMPO-NI’s award winning solutions like the first solely PV-powered Solar oil press open new CO2 neutral opportunities to fight poverty by reduction of post-harvest losses and creates local value chains and business models that unprecedentedly return their investment within a year.


A good example how a complex control challenge of a battery less system with a motor drive and precise digital heater temperature control along with a pressing process control has been achieved at full MPP operation.

Talk to our experts for more details, model sizing and how for example our Pay-As-You-Go and GSM based remote control and monitoring solutions can enhance your business.

Our IP54 protected family of Solar Direct Drives („SDD“) drive all kinds of 3-phase induction motors up to 5,5kW. We have developed a wide range of submersible pump solutions based on our outdoor proven SDDs and offer them as a „kit“ SDD + pump, of course in industrial-grade stainless steel quality of leading manufacturers and optimized hydraulic systems from 15m to 400m pump head and 0,37kW to 5,5kW of power.

Focussing on productive use our PV-powered highly robust MPPT PV- Solar Direct Drive kits comprise highly efficient IEC standard industrial flange or stand foot motors. These PV-solar Drive kits easily replace existing motors in all kind of standard applications like grinders, compressors, hammer mills, blowers, milk machines, pelletizers etc. and make these PV-off-grid using a minimum of PV-panels only.

Consider our Pay-As-You-Go and GSM based remote control and monitoring solutions can enhance your business with those unique kit solutions.

We are continuously further developing solutions especially for cooling applications like ice machines and solutions for cold storage containers, all MPP controlled, highly efficient and robust, without the need for batteries.

Our family of PV-panels with integrated battery charge controller from 8V up to 60V „SOLmini“ are the most versatile and customized product that has proven a 100.000 times its robustness and reliability from the North pole in weather observation stations to golf carts in Abu Dhabi or home supplies the mountans. We are working to extend more EV or light propulsion solutions.
