OLEC's vision of climate-neutral region finds supra-regional support: New OLEC advisory board begins its work.

The Oldenburg Energy Cluster OLEC e.V. is setting the course for future strategic work true to the network's recently revised vision of a climate-neutral region: With the newly founded OLEC Advisory Board, cooperation in the Northwest region will be strengthened and expanded to include supraregional expertise. The aim is to further improve energy cooperation in the Northwest and to address the pressing challenges of the climate crisis together with proven experts.

The new OLEC advisory board began its work at its inaugural meeting on 4 October 2021. The members of the Advisory Board have been appointed for an initial period of two years and will be available to the OLEC Board in the future as a technical advisory and impulse-giving body. The advisory board is made up of outstanding institutions and personalities from the north-west, the whole of Lower Saxony and the neighbouring northern Netherlands and will help to stimulate new ideas for networking and support the exploration of further potential for cooperation.

Roland Hentschel, Chairman of OLEC e.V., is pleased about the future support of the advisory board members: "With the OLEC advisory board, we are paving the way for even closer and more targeted cooperation between all actors in the Northwest. In line with our OLEC vision, we want to shape a climate-friendly future together: decarbonised. diversified. decentralised. digital."
