Rami Al Khalil


He originally started studying law, but then began his long journey as a Syrian refugee. Finally arriving in Switzerland, he quickly learned the language and managed on his own. He worked where he could, sometimes at two jobs in two shifts. His wish is to do an apprenticeship as an electrician and so he came to innovenergy. Since then, he conscientiously assembles salt battery storage systems, tests them and prepares them for delivery.

Ali Salama


There are people who have a not-so-nice past that you wouldn't wish on anyone. Ali Salama is one of these people. His escape from Syria, from rather cruel circumstances, with a stopover in a mass camp in Lebanon, is very touching. He is truly grateful to be in Switzerland. Despite insecurity, he voluntarily left social welfare because he wants to contribute to society and not be on anyone's pocket. He does a great job, is eager to learn, hardworking and very committed. With a sparkle in his eyes, he assists in the assembly of the salidomo©.
