Jochen Homann headed the Federal Network Agency until 2022. In an interview, he explains what he thinks of his successor and what the German energy transition is really like.
Until the start of the war in Ukraine, Jochen Homann, 70, headed the Bonn Federal Network Agency, the most powerful German agency for energy and infrastructure issues. Among other things, he prevented the rapid approval of the controversial Russian gas pipeline Nord Stream 2. In an interview, the economist explains how Germany’s energy transition really is. And he demands: Down with electricity taxes for everyone!
Mr. Homann, do you drive an electric car privately? Do you heat with a heat pump?
No, I neither have an electric car nor a heat pump.
