Gunnar Will is a Senior Project Manager for adelphi’s energy and energy efficiency campaigns. For the political scientist, climate protection is a shared task for which business, politics and society must work together. In his projects, he particularly supports clients from the political arena in shaping participatory processes and moderates the exchange between various actors.

Gunnar has several years of work experience in the energy and environment sector, as well as in international trade. His prior work experience included managing and overseeing national and international projects for ministries and private clients in the field of energy efficiency and renewable energies. In addition to a broad network of contacts in business, politics and associations, he has in-depth knowledge of energy efficiency, energy (foreign) policy, campaigns and participation and stakeholder processes for the environmental and sustainability sector.

Gunnar is a certified trainer (DVNLP) and has extensive experience in the design and implementation of trainings for different target groups. As a moderator of major conferences and specialist events, he regularly takes the stage and supports clients in developing effective events, most recently for the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi), the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) or the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). Since 2019, he has been passing on his moderation experience in the form of in-house training courses.

Before joining adelphi, Gunnar worked for the GFA Consulting Group within the BMWi. As Deputy Head of the Energy Efficiency Export Initiative, he was responsible for supporting German companies in developing foreign markets in East and Southeast Asia. He previously worked in the energy efficiency division of the German Energy Agency (dena) and for the consulting company IFOK GmbH, where he facilitated stakeholder dialogues in the energy sector.

During his master's degree in Political Science and Journalism at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, Gunnar focused on political communications and the performance of democratic systems. His studies were funded by a scholarship from the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung.
