In June, EnBW invited mayors, local authority and state politicians, and managing directors of public utilities to an Energy Day for the fifth time. Minister President Winfried Kretschmann and EnBW CEO Dr. Frank Mastiaux reported on the implementation status of the Energiewende and current developments in the energy industry. Under the motto “Marketplace for Decision Makers”, top-class speakers and experts exchanged information and entered into discussion during specialist talks. It is not only the Energiewende but also the development and provision of attractive living and working spaces that is a challenge for local authorities in a new energy era. This includes, for example, providing fast Internet connections, reliable electricity and gas grids or new street lighting systems.
