On the 18th of October, TÜV SÜD Korea participated in the luncheon discussion event themed as “The Role of Energy Suppliers for Successful Energy Transitions in Germany and Korea” at the Conrad Hotel in Yeouido. The event was organized by the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy of Germany and the Korean- German Chamber of Commerce and Industry, focusing on strategies and business models of energy suppliers in the light of energy transition and nuclear phase-out. Furthermore, it was aimed to give the participants an overview on the status of the energy suppliers activities in terms of renewable power generation and energy service in Korea and Germany.
TÜV SÜD is the only supplier to test or certify a wide range of regenerative energies across Europe from generation to the end customer, and that was the reason why Mr. Franz Kindermann, Project Manager in Real Estate & Infrastructure, was invited as a speaker to talk about Energy Transition companies in Germany.

He was accompanied by Dr. Helge Knobbe, Head of Industry Service of TÜV SÜD Korea, who is also in charge of industrial energy efficiency services in Korea.
From a Korean point of view, Mr. Seung Yoon-Hyun, Senior Manager from the Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO) was invited as a speaker and talked about the changes in the transmission and distribution network for Energy Transition.
