“I grew up with mountains of coal in the Ruhr area and experienced the pressure of change from an early age. It was a hard transition that we called structural change. To see now what can come from that, what is coming from that, absolutely fascinates me. The energy world of the future is already visible.”— Britta Wöhrmann
We’re currently experiencing a phase of overlapping events that’s historic in its proportions. More than ever before, it has become crucial for us to free ourselves from our dependency on fossil energy imports. Now is the time to pull out all the stops when it comes to rapid decarbonisation in the electricity, heating and mobility sectors, including with regard to the expansion of renewable energies, necessary system flexibility and storage capacities. The challenge is to create efficient and sustainable solutions which are both socially compliant and fair – and to do so within a highly regulated environment.
We’re looking for leaders with skill and strong nerves who can make things happen within narrow time frames. Driving progress while ensuring supply security is the great interdisciplinary challenge.
