Our vision is a safe and public welfare-oriented energy supply based on energy efficiency and renewable energies. We want the energy transition to be a success - also for our customers.
For this we bring in our strengths:
Our founders and consultants have many years of professional management experience in companies, administration and politics. We know our clients' needs not only from a consultant's perspective, but also from our own practical experience.
Our projects are interdisciplinary and implementation-oriented. For us, this means that, in addition to technical and economic feasibility, we also take regulatory, political and communication risks into account from the outset.
Our unconventional thinking is the basis for new business models and policy approaches. We are not always in the mainstream. But the history of the energy transition shows: What seemed unthinkable yesterday has become reality today.
We have organized our business in two companies.
HIC Hamburg Institut Consulting GmbH is responsible for the consulting business, while HIR Hamburg Institut Research, as a non-profit organisation, prepares scientific studies and conducts application-oriented research in the field of energy and environmental policy.
