Vice President Commercial Strategy in Trading & Origination, Statkraft
Sascha is an economist based in Oslo with a passion for working with renewable energy. He has a strong inclination for developing new market-oriented concepts for non-subsidized renewable assets.
Sascha is a Vice President in the Trading & Origination department at Statkraft, where he is responsible for developing Statkraft‘s lifetime extension offering for post-subsidy renewable assets in Europe.
