Dr. Frank Mastiaux and Thomas Kusterer
CEO Dr. Frank Mastiaux’ presentation centred on implementation of the EnBW 2020 Strategy and strategic thinking beyond 2020. Attainment of the EnBW 2020 Strategy targets continues to have top priority. For the onward development of its strategy, EnBW is evolving in parallel into a sustainable, innovative infrastructure partner.
CFO Thomas Kusterer explained the high level of financial discipline and good operating performance that led in the course of the rigorous portfolio restructuring to the financial turnaround in 2017. Management of the company is based on the integration of strategic aspects and a performance management system having due regard to sustainability issues. The integrated reporting system also incorporates ESG components, which are also important to the capital market. EnBW is thus likewise well positioned on the capital market for the implementation of its strategy going forward.
In the ensuing focal topic presentation, Stefan Kansy, Head of Portfolio Development, described the key success factors for EnBW in the offshore wind business. His presentation focused here on the Hohe See and Albatros wind farms currently under construction in the North Sea. In addition, he explained the key aspects of the zero bid for He Dreiht and the company’s selective internationalisation in Asia and North America.
