We are AE

About us – or the much better question:
Why are we actually doing this?

For us the answer is clear: There is no reason NOT to do it.

Thanks to many intelligent people with a lot of passion and even more know-how, we are in a position to implement a decentralized energy system for the first time in an economically efficient way. Energy from many for many. We have created software solutions that enable companies – both established and new players in the energy industry – to fully develop their economical and ecological potential. But we go even further. We are driven by the desire to create a sustainable world worth living in for future generations – not only environmental, but also economical. This is what we stand for. And this is why we want to help you shape the future of energy.

But we go further. We are driven by the desire to create a sustainable world worth living in for future generations – not only in terms of the environment, but also economically. That is what we stand for. And that is why we want to shape the future of energy with you.

The team

The PEERS introduce themselves

Dr. Karsten Schmidt

Managing Director, CEO & Founder

“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.

Gerrit Ellerwald

Managing Director, CFO & Founder

“We take away the last arguments of all skeptics not to tackle the energy revolution.“

You could say I’m a little crazy about starting businesses. After working as an in-house consultant for E.ON and BMW, I took my first steps towards independency and self-development: with Grünspar, I helped set up and manage a start-up from its founding to its sale. Several investments and projects with different start-ups followed. It’s easy for me to tackle things quickly and flexibly and to break new ground. We have created a similar environment at Ampeers Energy: Democratic & participative management style, fun at work, personal responsibility, team work, goal-oriented, modern and fair. In our view, this is the best starting point to make a contribution to the success of the energy system transformation.

Tobias Müller

Head of Operations, Founder

“I wanted to do something on my own!“

My conviction has always been: With a lot of passion and personal commitment, many unthinkable things can be done. In addition, I have developed the opinion that sustainability and economy must go hand in hand for a better future. After personal experience in the energy industry, among others with our current partner Polarstern, it was clear to me that the future of energy lies in decentralised and digital business models. And if you can develop and implement these together with great colleagues like Karsten and Gerrit, then you shouldn’t wait any longer to tackle this great opportunity.

“To be able to make a real contribution to our future on this earth with your daily work is incredibly motivating.”

AndrÉ Lacina

“Energy revolution means not only “green”, “regenerative” and “efficient”, but also “smart”, “progressive” and “digital”.”

Erika Schuller

Brand Management & User Experience Design

“It is not enough for resources to be renewable, they must also become economical.”

Lucas Recknagel

Therese Klarner

Product Owner & Back-End Developer

“Intelligent energy networking well thought out and future-oriented – this is exactly what I want to work on. Here at AE I have found the perfect breeding ground.”
