Thursday, May 11, 2017 / ESCP Europe Berlin (Heubnerweg 8-10, 14059 Berlin)

Please note that the discussion will be held in German.

Since EY and ESCP Europe started the “Klartext Energie” discussion forums in 2012, pressure on the energy industry has been rising. In addition to energy economics and sustainability, IT and digitalisation issues have become more important. “Disruption” is looming, and it is yet unclear who will be able to establish new business models in time. Smartphones, portals, the Internet of Things, Big Data and blockchain technologies lower market entry barriers in the energy sector. This has consequences for the suppliers, consumers can profit, and new business opportunities for start-ups are opening up.

In our 7th “Klartext Energie” panel, we welcome proponents of new and innovative business models (Thermondo, Venios, Nutreon), wind developer PNE WIND AG, who are facing pressure to change as well as generating it, and the Agora Energiewende think tank. The “Klartext” team Prof. Sylvie Geisendorf (ESCP Europe), Michael Riedel (EY) and Thomas Christiansen (EY) is looking forward to a lively discussion.
