EXPERTISE AND COMMITMENT

Carl Berninghausen
Chief Executive Officer (CEO)

Carl studied business administration at EBS University and economics at Frankfurt University, before becoming the successful head of a family business. He is co-founder and CEO. "Our goal is to build bridges between the energy, mobility and gas/heat supply sectors. The conversion of solar and wind energy into hydrogen is just the first step. Sunfire’s technologies make it possible to increase the proportion of renewable energy within the overall energy system significantly. Everything we currently make out of crude oil can be produced using solar energy, water and carbon dioxide."

Chief Technical Officer (CTO)

Christian studied industrial engineering at TU Karlsruhe and TU Dresden, and worked at Procter & Gamble. He is a co-founder and CTO: "The SOC is ideal to expand the energy transition to all areas of industry, not just the energy sector, and to ensure that renewable sources of energy can be used even without the wind and sun. Our key skills lie in delivering rapid-deployment, customer-specific fuel cell and electrolysis systems, shaping the market — and in turn business models — and developing industrial-scale production."

Chief Commercial Officer (CCO)

Nils studied business administration at EBS University. He is a co-founder and has been the Chief Commercial Officer since December 2016. He is also responsible for product management in the field of electrolysis: "The challenge of the energy transition is to make those sectors renewable that are largely dominated by oil and gas and at the same time keep an eye on the costs. Our multiple solutions allow home owners, the mobility sector, big and small industrial businesses and chemical companies to continue to use their existing plant and infrastructure to the full while employing renewable, clean energy."
