Dr. Oliver Weinmann - new associate partner for cruh21

Dr. Oliver Weinmann has been an associate partner of cruh21 GmbH since January 2023. He has more than 30 years of experience in energy utilities and thus extensive knowledge in the fields of renewable energies and green hydrogen. He has already been on board since October 2022.

According to Oliver Weinmann, cruh21 is working on the right topics: Hydrogen, renewable energies, system view. He says: "A dedicated, motivated team with a lot of expertise has inspired and convinced me. Hydrogen came into my life a few years ago with the realization of the hydrogen filling station in HafenCity, for refueling the buses of Hamburg's elevated railroad and passenger cars. An electrolysis system for the production of green hydrogen is integrated into the plant. The planning for this started in 2008. My first association: the energy turnaround needs green molecules as well as green electrons. And that will be hydrogen. We must continue to strengthen and expand awareness of climate protection and the energy transition in our society in order to successfully implement the transformation process of the energy industry. Being involved in and supporting a wide range of challenges here, as cruh21 is doing, is certainly one of the most exciting tasks."

Dr. Oliver Weinmann was managing director of Vattenfall Europe Innovation GmbH until 2022. The subsidiary of Vattenfall GmbH focuses on the development of new business areas in the field of renewable energies. He studied process engineering at RWTH Aachen University and subsequently completed his doctorate on solar thermal power plants at DLR in Cologne.

In 1992, he started his career at HEW in Hamburg and joined Vattenfall in 2003 as Head of Innovation Management. In parallel, he was Managing Director of Vattenfall Renewables GmbH between 2004 and 2007. In 2010, he was appointed Managing Director of Vattenfall Europe Innovation GmbH.

We wish Oliver a successful start at cruh21 and are very much looking forward to working with him.
