Jens Deutschendorf

State Secretary, Hessian Ministry of Economics, Energy, Transport and Housing

We are very happy that this event is happening, we see that a lot of international guests are in Frankfurt, Hesse, and we are talking about very important issues like hydrogen and climate change and changes in the energy sector, which are also very important for the Hessian government. I am very interested in meeting people and talking to them to see if we can match interesting projects and learn from each other. This is what IME is offering to all of us!
