Volkswagen Group Components has named Elke Temme as the head of the newly-created Charging & Energy business unit. This area’s responsibilities will include pooling and managing existing VW Group activities in the fields of energy, charging services, charging equipment and charging infrastructure across all the brands. 

Temme joins Volkswagen from the energy company RWE/innogy where she has held various positions over the past 18 years.

In her last role, Ms Temme was COO of innogy eMobility solutions GmbH, an independent company coming under the umbrella of innogy SE that provides cloud-based software solutions, as well as AC and DC charging hardware to B2B partners.

Thomas Schmall, member of the Volkswagen AG Board of Management and CEO of Volkswagen Group Components, says: “With Elke Temme, we have won a proven expert in the fields of energy and charging for our company. With her many years of experience and outstanding expertise she will quickly charge up the new business field and thus make a considerable contribution towards moving not only Group Components, but also the whole Group forwards in the field of electric mobility.”

He adds: “Expert knowledge and many years of experience will make a considerable difference in moving the transformation to electric mobility forwards.”

Temme started her career at Commerzbank AG, before taking on different managerial roles at RWE AG and innogy SE, which was spun off from RWE.
