Herman Ott

About the speaker:

Dr. Hermann Ott has been a Member of the German Federal Parliament (Bundestag) and the Green Party (Bündnis 90/Die Grünen) speaker on climate policy since 2009. He is also a member of the Bundestag’s“Commission on Growth, Prosperity and Quality of Life.” Before becoming a politician, he worked as a scientist, policy advisor, and author at one of Germany’s leading think tanks, the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy, where he was the Director of the Climate Program and later head of the institute’s Berlin office. Hermann Ott studied law and politics and wrote his PhD dissertation on “Environmental Regimes in International Law.” As part of his professional career he worked at the European Commission in Brussels, the United Nations Ozone Secretariat in Nairobi, as well as the German Foreign Office, where he was a member of the policy planning team. 

Dr. Ott brings together the expertise of a renowned scientist and the experience and insights of a politician in the fields of climate and energy policy - especially the German energy transition (Energiewende). After participating in international climate conferences for many years, he advocates climate clubs as forerunners in international climate policy to overcome the current stalemate. Dr. Ott emphasizes a crucial link between climate policy and energy transition. He argues that an Energiewende will only be successful and sustainable with the right compass at hand – with combating climate change as one of the main directing and decisive factors.
