Malte is a highly qualified industrial engineer with long experience in renewables and conventional power technology. During five years as part of the research team at Fraunhofer IWES, he was particularly focused on energy market design and the markets for ancillary services. His involvement in several European and national research projects was complemented by project work directly with industry electricity traders, utilities, wind turbine manufacturers and trade associations, rolling out previously developed concepts into the market. His input to energy market reform in Germany directly shaped the rules for future market design, allowing renewables to contribute towards power system security.
Malte is a doctor of energy economics (Dr. rer. pol.) and has written his doctoral thesis on the economics of wind and solar in markets for power system reserves. Malte hold a Bachelor’s degree in Energy and Environmental Engineering from the University of Applied Sciences Flensburg and a Master’s degree (with distinction) on the same topic from the European university of Flensburg. Malte speaks English, German and Spanish.
