Talk community Interview: Joerg Gmeinbauer

Joerg Gmeinbauer, Vice President, Global Sales & Strategic Markets, Bureau Veritas

What do you see as the biggest opportunity for the energy industry?

The energy sector has been going through huge disruptive change during the last 20 years. But by putting climate protection first, the industry has set an unprecedented example of global leadership and has shown that a whole industry can change course just within less than a decade. Electrification through decarbonisation and decentralisation will remain at the center of attention for the decades to come. The biggest opportunity for the industry is to build on the cost competitiveness low carbon generation was able to build in recent years and take digitalisation from first movers to full industry-wide implementation.   

What do you see as the biggest threat to the energy industry?

Populism, protectionism and political interference to protect parts of the industry that are not worth protecting.

What are the key topics you will highlight at this year’s EUW?

Digitalisation is a buzz word often used without proper knowledge and widely misunderstood. Still it is now at the core of the energy transition. PGE and EUW will be a good place to debunk some of the myths and have good conversations to take digitalisation to a next level.
