This is the only way to achieve the ambitious goals and timetables on the path to climate neutrality. It is important that the regulatory framework clearly favors innovation and digitalization in the energy industry. TenneT, as a transmission system operator that connects the gigantic offshore potential of the North Sea with the industrial centers, will play a central role in the climate turnaround.

We are very much looking forward to working with her," said TenneT CEO Manon van Beek. At the same time, she thanks Otto Jager, who held the position from 2013 until the end of 2021, for his high level of commitment. He had made a significant contribution to TenneT's development into a financially sound and green-financed company.

Background: Arina Freitag was managing director of Flughafen Stuttgart GmbH from 2017 until the end of 2021. She started her career in 1998 at the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi as an economist.
