A growing environmental awareness, an improved protection of the climate, new technologies and changes in the regulatory framework continuously pose various challenges for energy suppliers, network operators, companies with a high energy consumption and investors.

Currently, the industry is among other things dealing with the implementation of the EU package "Clean Energy for All Europeans", the reforms of the German Renewable Energies Act ( Erneuerbare Energien-Gesetz, EEG ) and the German Law for the Development and Advancement of Offshore Wind Energy ( Gesetz zur Entwicklung und Förderung der Windenergie auf See, WindSeeG ) as well as the measures following from the hydrogen strategies of the German federal government and the EU Commission.
