Andreas Kuhlmann, CEO of the German Energy Agency (dena), is one of the keynote speakers for the upcoming Energy Connected conference.

As the head of one of Europe’s leading energy agencies, Kuhlmann brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the conference. Andreas Kuhlmann has been the CEO of dena since July 2015. In this role, he increased dena’s profile as a driver and pioneer of energy transition and climate protection.

Exemplary projects for this include the international innovation initiative “Start Up Energy Transition“, which now brings together around 1,500 start-ups from all over the world, as well as the  “Integrated Energy Transition” pilot study, whereby dena, together with more than 60 partners from business and science, is developing strategies for the future and the achievements of the climate goals.

Andreas Kuhlmann sees the energy transition as one of the most fascinating change processes of the present day, which, in addition to challenges, above all also brings with it opportunities.

With this in mind, he brings his knowledge of diverse national and international projects acquired at the interface between business and politics into the energy and climate policy debate. And he campaigns for more courage and determination in designing the framework conditions that are necessary for the success of the energy transition.

The Energy Connected conference is one of the leading events in the energy sector, bringing together policymakers, industry leaders, and experts from around the world to discuss the latest trends and developments in the field.

With a focus on innovation, sustainability, and digitalization, the conference is an important platform for driving progress and shaping the future of the energy sector.

“We are delighted to welcome Andreas Kuhlmann as keynote speaker for Energy Connected 2023,” says Annie Korsmo, Project Manager for the conference and Head of Ecosystem at Energy Valley.

“His expertise and insights will be invaluable in shaping the conversation around the future of energy and the role that innovation, sustainability, and digitalization will play in driving progress and achieving our goals.”
