Reinforcement for GP JOULE

Reußenköge, 15. April 2016.  Dr. Fabian Sösemann will head the newly created “Energy Supply” division at GP JOULE GmbH with immediate effect. His main area of focus will be on advancing modern products and solutions for business customers, local communities and private households to enable them to use renewable energies regionally, directly and intelligently. In this way all relevant sectors – electricity, heat and mobility – can be linked up effectively.

 “As an acknowledged expert in the fast-growing energy industry, Dr. Sösemann suits our team perfectly”, states GP JOULE founder and managing director Ove Petersen. “He is an absolute expert for all aspects of customer-oriented energy distribution and is intimately acquainted with developing new business models.  As a legal expert he is also a specialist for all matters concerning energy industry law.” 

Up until now Dr. Fabian Sösemann was responsible for directly marketing EEG electricity (EEG = German Renewable Energies Act)  at Grundgrün Energie GmbH. His responsibilities included designing products and processes concerning energy industry law as well as developing contracts with regard to marketing renewable energies. 

Dr. Fabian Sösemann was also a designing member in the Federal Ministry of Economics task force which developed a model of regional guarantees of origin for directly marketed electricity.  Prior to this he worked at the Becker Büttner Held law firm in Berlin, which specialises in energy-related topics.    

“Without a doubt GP JOULE is one of the innovative drivers in the area of renewable energies. Intelligent concepts such as the STROMLÜCKENFÜLLER (electricity gap filler) in which powerful hydrogen electrolysers and biogas technology are combined into an efficient interim storage prove this impressively. I consider it a great privilege to be able to contribute creatively in such a company”, says Dr. Fabian Sösemann.    

Apart from technical solutions, GP JOULE now also offers the opportunity of combining the benefits of consistent sector coupling – i.e. of electricity, heat and mobility from renewable energies for the first time in its new business area CONNECT.  Commercial enterprises or local communities can profit from attractively priced electricity tariffs and implement suitable infrastructure solutions in the areas of mobility and storage. This makes it possible to market renewable energy regionally, directly and intelligently.

In this way the entire energy value chain from production, distribution to usage remains under one roof. 100% renewable energies, locally generated and used on site – this is the CONNECT approach which aims to bring the benefits of renewable energies to all areas of life.
