“To get things moving faster, we just took them into our own hands.“
The environment and nature have changed massively in recent years. As a father and enthusiastic outdoor fan, I can’t close my eyes to it. Changes of this magnitude require answers that cannot simply be found with regulation and political prohibitions. We are firmly convinced that the future success of the energy system transformation is based on innovative, decentralized business models. Working together at Fraunhofer, Gerrit, Tobias and I have discovered that we are thinking in the same direction and that we have the right know-how and skills to stop leaving the challenges of the energy system transformation to the slow processes and structures of large corporations. Now is the right time to go ahead and develop economically viable concepts for the future of energy together with our customers.
