On September 15, 2016, AmCham Germany’s Environment & Energy Committee hosted Dr. Urban Rid, Abteilungsleiter „Energiepolitik – Strom und Netze“, Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Energie, to discuss current energy policies. After a short introduction by Dr. Birgit Ortlieb, Chair of the Committee, Dr. Rid shared his views on policy issues such as the cogeneration Act (KWKG 2016) and the Climate Action Plan 2050. Dr. Rid also addressed more general topics, such as grid expansion, with the committee members.

AmCham Germany thanks Dr. Rid for his time and looks forward to continuing the dialogue in the future.
