Christopher Lenz, EnviroFALK PharmaWaterSystems GmbH

Business Development Manager


Christopher Lenz, born in 1994 in Limburg an der Lahn, developed an early interest in sustainability and energy efficiency. He earned his Bachelor's degree in Energy Engineering in 2019, specializing in hydrogen technology with a thesis on a large-scale hydrogen production facility in collaboration with Trianel GmbH. Completing his Master's studies in renewable energies in 2021, he focused on a multicriteria analysis for the hydrogen economy. Both theses reflect his profound interest in hydrogen technology. In 2022, he obtained the certification as a project manager from the IHK and assumed the role of a project manager at Trianel GmbH, making significant contributions to hydrogen projects. In 2023, Christopher became the Business Development Manager for Hydrogen Projects at EnviroFALK, leveraging his expertise to drive innovative and sustainable solutions in the fields of renewable energy and water treatment.

Hasret Varan, SMA Altenso GmbH

Sales & Business Development Manager -Power 2 Gas

Hasret has a background in industrial engineering with the focus on renewable energies and energy efficiency from the University in Kassel (M.Sc.). During her studies, he has already started working as student in the product management of large-scale PV and battery inverters. After working several years in product management in the solar business, she was keen to learn more about further functionalities of the inverters and wrote her master thesis about market opporunities of grid-forming inverters for inertia and dynamic reactive power in different promising markets, such as Australia, UK, US (ERCOT). Green hydrogen was also a new market, where the inverters could be used. Sawing the big opportunity of this market for decarbonizing several markets and beginning in a small but very fast growing market enviroment convinced her to start as as sales & business development manager at SMA Altenso for hydrogen applications in 2021.
