WorldWater & Solar Technologies, America’s longest continuing solar technology company, announced today that David Hammes has been named Vice President, Sales and Marketing, for the international engineering company.

WWST engineers and installs commercial and industrial solar parks generating MegaWatts of electricity. It employs cutting-edge solar solutions to replace diesel generators and drive large pumps for irrigation or for municipal water systems – solar technology for pumping, purifying, and desalinating water.
Hammes, one of several new staff additions to WWST, will be responsible for creating corporate sales and market strategy, spearheading business development and supporting WWST’s branding as an international leader in proprietary solar engineering and clean water solutions. He will work closely with WWST’s international partners, including governmental and business leaders, to continue to expand the reach and impact of WWST’s technology.
Welcoming and commending his addition to the WWST team, Dr. Chris Sherring, COO, says, “At a time when WorldWater and Solar is experiencing strong demand in so many regions both internationally and domestically, David is a welcome complement to our long-standing expertise providing energy security, preparedness and resilience worldwide.”
Before joining WWST, Hammes was CEO of Energy Without Borders, an energy efficiency company he founded, and, earlier, head of sales in the Americas for Mage Solar modules, the German manufacturer.
In addition to operating in the United States, Central America, and the Caribbean, WWST has recently opened offices in Saudi Arabia and Morocco and is active in Egypt, Ghana, Namibia, the Philippines and Sri Lanka.
