Brigitte Zypries as new project patron confirmed – 7 March 2017

We are happy to welcome Brigitte Zypries as project patron of “Power Shifts – Reflecting Europe’s Energy”.

Brigitte Zypries is a German politician from the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD). Since January 2017, she has been serving as Minister for Economics and Energy in the government of Chancellor Angela Merkel. She is the first woman to hold that office in German history. We thank her for her commitment in supporting our work and for taking over the patronship from her predecessor Sigmar Gabriel.
