Amprion Supervisory Board formed

  • Juergen Grossmann elected Chairman
  • Hartmut Schauerte to be appointed independent member of Supervisory Board

In its constituent meeting yesterday in Berlin, the Supervisory Board of the transmission system operator Amprion elected Juergen Grossmann, CEO of RWE AG, as Chairman. Hartmut Schauerte, who was for many years a member of the German Bundestag and former State Secretary in the Federal Economics Ministry has been appointed independent member of the Supervisory Board. The other members are Harry Schur and Heinz-Werner Ufer (both from RWE AG) as well as employee representatives Josef Frankemoelle and Walter Lugt (both from Amprion).

"As an independent member of the Supervisory Board, Hartmut Schauerte will apply his expertise to closely monitor the independence of Amprion. In choosing him, we are implementing a further requirement of the Third EU Energy Liberalisation and are strengthening the independence of our transmission system operator. In this way, we make sure that Amprion gradually becomes an `Independent Transmission System Operator' in line with EU directives" said Juergen Grossmann.
