Fundamental change to the production and the usage of energy in cities can be realised
By Jörn-Erik Mantz, Head of the B2B Energy Division of Innogy SE
After his studies of mechanical engineering at the Technical University of Munich and the University of Colorado Boulder, Mr. Mantz worked amongst at Bayernwerk AG (planning and development as well as construction and operation of power plant projects: e.g. KWK Shell Hamburg-Harburg, thermal power station Nord der Stadtwerke Frankfurt, KWK BASF Nanjing, Amata Power industrial power plants).
This was followed by activities as managing director at E.ON Energy Projects GmbH (development, construction and operation of combined heat and power, biomass and wind power plants), at E.ON Engineering (sales and commercial services: Development of external sales, introduction of new project and sales controlling, strategy development and corporate planning as well as the management of subsidiaries in Germany, the USA and the Netherlands) and E.ON Russia Power in Moscow.
In mid-2008, Mr. Mantz moved to the RWE Group, where he led the development of RWE Power AG’s business. From October 2009 he was Head of International Nuclear Energy Projects.
Since 2013, Mr. Mantz has been Managing Director of RWE Energiedienstleistungen GmbH, which was integrated into RWE International SE (since October 2016 innogy SE) in May 2016. Here he was responsible e.g. the merger with RWE Innogy Biomass, the cooperation project with the Mainz municipal utilities, the modernisation of the district heating supply of the city of Marl as well as numerous energy service projects.
Since 01.10.2016, Mr. Mantz is Head of the B2B energy division of Innogy SE.
According to him, cities already today and with an increasing share in future, will concentrate the world economic and population growth. As a consequence, fundamental change to the production and usage of energy in cities can be realised. Cities are already but will in future be an even more excessive producer of carbon emission. Therefore decarbonisation of the energy and infrastructure in cities street saving regimes represents an essential element for the world future decarbonisation.
