OGE opens an office in the capital
- Berlin office launched in October
- Crucial political decisions to set the course for the future
- Cooperation across different industry and value chains is essential
As Germany’s largest transmission system operator, OGE is a firm component of today’s energy system. At the same time, we have set ourselves ambitious targets, not least with our involvement in shaping the way energy is supplied via gas infrastructure – today and in the energy mix of the future. On top of this, we have developed and launched a series of projects aimed at more climate-neutral gases.
Thanks to the literally “interconnecting” role we play, we are well aware of how important it is in today’s complex world for players spanning different industries and value chains to work together to ensure the success of the energy transition. Here, we want to make a contribution to European and national climate goals, particularly by supporting a steady shift to hydrogen.
For us as OGE, it is therefore particularly important to remain in constant contact with a diverse group of actors from politics, business and society – on a local level, but also on a regional and national level. In order to make this contact even more straightforward and efficient, we now have an office in the capital, which got to work in October 2020.
“There are still a number of important political decisions to be made in this legislative period in order for the hydrogen economy in Germany to get off the ground. The statutory and regulatory framework for hydrogen transportation in the existing pipeline infrastructure urgently requires adaptation,” says Dr Jörg Bergmann, CEO at OGE. “Among other things, we aim to use our Berlin office to intensify the dialogue concerning this issue with actors in national politics.”
The manager of the OGE office in Berlin is Tim Bruns.
