BP hopes that Dotzenrath’s expertise in renewable sources of energy like wind turbines, hydrogen, and biofuels will help to achieve the company strategy of developing 20 gigawatts of renewable assets by 2025 and over 50 gigawatts by 2030.
BP plans on achieving this goal by investing billions of dollars in low-carbon energy, starting with $2 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach as high as $5 billion by 2030.
“I am delighted that Anja has chosen to join us and help lead bp’s transformation from an international oil company to an integrated energy company,” said BP chief executive Bernard Looney.
“She is exactly the right person for bp, at exactly the right time – a globally respected and deeply experienced leader in renewable energy with a proven track record of transforming and growing businesses.”
BP claims to have developed 3.1 gigawatts of renewable power through their Lightsource solar joint venture and has the potential to generate as much as 21 gigawatts in the near future.
