More than 30 bright minds in the interdisciplinary team

Motivation, curiosity and enthusiasm – the sources from which our team draws its energy are climate-neutral, emission-free and renewable every day. Hamburg Institut thrives on the spirit that working here is more than just a job. We want to make a visible difference with our special skills and personalities. The feedback from our clients confirms that we are on the right track. With the diverse and in some cases highly specialised competences in our ranks, we have long since ceased to be an insider tip in certain specialist areas – including heat storage, large-scale heat pumps and certificates of origin – and are now a preferred contact throughout the industry.

Hamburg Institut consists of two companies: Non-profit HIR Hamburg Institut Research gGmbH concentrates on research projects, while HIC Hamburg Institut Consulting GmbH focuses on the consulting business.

The profiles of our entire team can be found on the German version of our website


Robert Werner
Managing Director

"A short time ago, many of our ideas were still considered crazy. Today they are indispensable for a successful energy transition."

Dr. Matthias Sandrock
Managing Director

"It's not a question of whether we can afford renewables today - the question is how long we can afford fossil fuels."


Ulrike Jeschka
Management Assistant

"Some are waiting for something to change, others are tackeling it and acting. We are the others."
