Hans-Werner has a long and wide-ranging experience in the field of renewable energies. After graduating in physics in 1983, he cancelled his dissertation on solid state physics to devote his time to alternative energies. In 1986 after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, he summoned colleagues from his university to found an institute for radiation measurement. Furthermore, he began working for better energy systems.

For the last 20 years, his main focus has become bioenergy. As head of the bioenergy department of ABO Wind, an international project developer for renewable energies, he was responsible for biogas and wood-fired cogeneration projects. He worked on international projects in developing countries (Ecuador, Mexico and Vietnam). As director of a renewable energy association at Wiesbaden, he is engaged in local grassroot activities.

Knowing that not printed paper but real measures reduce carbon emissions, his aim is to contribute to the local and global energy transition with a comprehensive approach, high technical and scientific experience, economic expertise, communication skills and, - last but not least - patience.
