Michael lives with his family in a wonderful old building in the small town of Lüdinghausen. Lüdinghausen is located south of Münster in the wider Ruhr area. The family house was built in 1907 on the banks of the Stever river – at a time when electricity supply was not yet established in Lüdinghausen.

Michael is a doer, visionary and explainer: He is familiar with all facets of the energy industry – especially with decentralized energy supply, e-mobility and metering/control technology. As an entrepreneur, he develops IoT systems for residential buildings, he operates an intelligent solar system in the garden that also charges his electric car in front of the house, and regularly he despairs of repairing the lighting on his four daughters’ bicycles. He is happy to share the positive and negative experiences from his projects with interested customers.

Michael loves to harvest fruits that he has grown himself in his garden. But even more he is pleased to see others starting to grow their own fruits, too.
