ENERTRAG appoints Dr. Tobias Bischof-Niemz as Member of the Management Board for Projects International & Technology

The Supervisory Board of ENERTRAG SE has decided to expand the existing three-member Management Board and appoint Dr. Tobias Bischof-Niemz, currently Divisional Head of New Energy Solutions, to the Management Board. With this appointment, ENERTRAG recognises its successful international growth and technological pioneering role in renewable power plants, particularly in the design and construction of the urgently needed green hydrogen infrastructure in Germany and worldwide.

Dr. Bischof-Niemz is already responsible for the company's international activities and sector coupling approaches. His vision of innovative and sustainable energy solutions has played a key role in positioning ENERTRAG as one of the leading companies in the field of renewable energies.

Dr. Tobias Bischof-Niemz has more than 15 years of experience in the renewable energy industry and an impressive track record in managing complex international projects. As a proven expert in his field, he has been working for ENERTRAG since 2017.

Before joining ENERTRAG, Dr. Bischof-Niemz successfully established and managed the South African National Research Council's (CSIR) Energy Transition Centre, which today has 90 employees. He also served as a member of the advisory council to the Minister of Energy in South Africa. Previously, he worked as a senior consultant for the Boston Consulting Group in Frankfurt a.M. Dr. Tobias Bischof-Niemz studied engineering and energy policy in Darmstadt, Berkeley and New York.

Dr. Bischof-Niemz is enthusiastic about his new role: "It is an honour to be appointed to the Management Board after several intensive and eventful years as Divisional Head. ENERTRAG has established itself as a trailblazer for renewable energies; I look forward to continuing this journey in my new position and building on ENERTRAG’s frontrunner role."

Jörg Müller, Chairman of the Supervisory Board, founder and majority shareholder of ENERTRAG, emphasises: "We are convinced that Dr. Bischof-Niemz, with his extensive experience and expertise, is the ideal candidate for the board position “Projects International & Technology”. His commitment to sustainability and his successful track record in the design and implementation of renewable integrated power plants that combine electricity, hydrogen and heat generation make him a key figure for the further development of ENERTRAG on a global level."

Over the past 20 years, ENERTRAG has grown into a large medium-sized company with over 1,000 employees. ENERTRAG is driving forward the energy transition in nine countries on four continents. Renewable integrated power plants, which not only produce electricity on demand, but also heat and green hydrogen, have emerged from traditional onshore wind energy development. ENERTRAG's energy projects have become more numerous, more complex and larger in recent years.

With the strategic expansion of the Management Board ENERTRAG is further strengthening and expanding its position in the field of German & international energy solutions.
