Philipp Godron

Programme Lead International

Philipp Godron is responsible for international energy policies and global energy transition at Agora Energiewende. He seeks to provide transparency to interested stakeholders worldwide on what went well in Germany and which mistakes they may wish to avoid when transforming their energy sectors.

Before joining Agora, Philipp has been with Desertec Industrial Initiative (Dii) for five years. As team lead and co-author, he was responsible for Dii’s strategy reports on the design of a Euro-Mediterranean power market based on Renewables, and coordinated market and regulatory analyses as well as power grid simulations. Between 2009 and 2011, Philipp advised the Government of Jordan on incentivizing Renewables development on behalf of the German government.

He started his career with German utility E.ON in 2003, where he was in charge of policy analysis and, later, coordination and strategy development of the company’s grid operators with regard to the German regulator. Philipp has a Master in European Studies from Humboldt University in Berlin and studied political sciences, history and philosophy in Cologne and Bologna.
