Bremen, 29 June 2017. Today, the Supervisory Board of Energiekontor AG appointed Torben Möller as the third member of the Management Board. Mr Möller initially set up the Repowering division efficiently as head of department. For more than a year, he has also successfully handled the coordination of innovation and competitive measures and the introduction of an agile project management system. Due to his achievements, he became the managing director of several subsidiaries of Energiekontor AG last year.
In his capacity as a member of the Management Board, he will be in charge of project development in the northern part of North-Rhine Westphalia and the field of rotor blade extension in addition to accounting for general tasks. The aim is to further expand and strengthen the repowering business with the increasing age of wind farms and to establish Energiekontor as a pioneer in reducing levelized cost of electricity from renewable energy sources.
“We are convinced that a clear cut in levelized cost of electricity from renewable energy sources is one of the key elements for covering 100 percent of the energy supply with renewables,” Bodo Wilkens, the Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Energiekontor AG states, and continues: “We have full confidence in Mr Möller and his teams and wish him continued success in his new position.”
