Successful participation and speakerslots at 5 well-known RE events

In the last few weeks the Think RE founders were very engaged in attending conferences, fairs and online panels. Due to a busy schedule, events were even joined in parallel.

Over 600 participants at CLIMATE TRANSFORMATION Summit

While using the opportunity of excellent networking with C&I offtakers as well as listening to exciting lectures of industrial companies about PPAs and Power to X Solutions, especially hydrogen, we also presented our renewable energy platform RE Wave on site at RE-Source, taking place from 14–15 October 2021 in Amsterdam. During this large event Think RE CEO Dr. Steffen Hundt even participated in the Energy Trading Week (ETW), which was executed in-person in London or online, and spoke about PPAs future market developments, opportunities and trends during an online panel on 14th October.
Not only an interesting discussion about developments of Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) from the perspective of utilities but also the individual types of PPAs, such as virtual PPAs and furthermore fixed and flor price contracts were discussed. After sheding light on PPA markets in Europe such as UK, Sweden, Spain the ETW panelists agreed that PPAs will also play a major role for utilities in the future.

Speakerslots about Power Purchase Agreements and EU Taxonomy

From October 26th to 27th, Think Re was invited to join the 13. Branchentag Windenergie NRW in Gelsenkirchen, where economic and legal topics found their place as well as municipal or environmental protection questions around wind energy. During a further speakerslot Dr. Steffen Hundt talked  about EU Taxonomy Regulation  including the chances and risks of emissions management for companies.
On 9th November SAENA organized the 4th Information and Networking Event for Stakeholders in the Fields of Energy Research and Energy Innovation - Opportunities for Saxon Stakeholders. Once more we took the opportunity to contribute to the program with an interesting lecture about power purchase contracts from an industrial point of view.

Carrera Racetrack at Think RE Spreewindtage booth and participation at Hasewind Dialogue

Last week the 29th Wind Energy Days seamlessly followed up the popular and successful events of previous years from 10th – 12th November in Potsdam and established once again as an important industry meeting point for onshore wind energy. The Think RE team was on site as exhibitor with an own booth where we had exciting conversations on the subject of PPAs and digitization of PPA sourcing on the one hand and where participants got the possibility to demonstrate their driving skills on a Carrera racetrack under the motto „Electrifying the Streets“. A further highlight of Spreewindtage was the very interesting Hasewind-dialogue about the 1.5°C Target, „Fit for 55“, CO2 pricing and EU-Taxonomie where Dr. Hundt was one of the panelists. A recording of the livestream of the whole roundtable discussion is available here.
After the numerous events of the last few weeks, we draw a very positive conclusion and look forward to deepening the discussions and continuing the project ideas that have already been initiated.
