The international managing director of the German Solar Association, David Wedepohl, has been elected chairman of the strategy advisory board of the Export Initiative for Energy of the German government. The Advisory Board is the central economic body within the framework of the initiative.
Here, specialist and industry associations of the German energy industry advise the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi) on the strategic orientation and target market focus of the export initiative. The Strategy Advisory Board serves the exchange of information and experience between its members, the BMWi and the office. BSW prominently represents all professional associations of the German Renewable Energy Federation (BEE), some of which are full members of the board. The election is seen as a great success for renewables as a whole and the solar industry in particular. The member companies participate particularly actively and intensively in the activities of the German export initiative for energy.
