What we stand for

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:

  • Expertise

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.

  • Multidisciplinarity

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.

  • Inventiveness

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 are part of Averdung Ingenieure & Berater GmbH.

As an independent company under the umbrella of Averdung Ingenieure & Berater GmbH, we have organized our work into two business divisions: 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.
