About r2b energy consulting

Hand in hand for secure growth

The partners of r2b are four different characters who, through a common discipline over many years, have gotten to know and appreciate each other: the study of energy-economic issues at the University of Cologne at the local Institute. This is one way the founding story of r2b could begin.
It could also start in 2008, at the foot of Table Mountain in South Africa's Cape Town: severe weather conditions, the wrong shoes and a hike in a stunning landscape that became surprisingly challenge - with no way back. There was only one direction – forward – and one credo: keep going.

In times of such tension, you grow together, support each other, double your strength and guide each other along the way.
A balancing act with a clear message and a bold step at the top of the mountain: we set up our own consulting company!

'Those who have no goal in sight, can also cover no ground.' Ernst Ferstl

Research to Business

In 2009, we - Martin Lienert, Prof. Dr. Felix Müsgens, Markus Peek and Dr. Ralf Wissen - founded the r2b energy consulting GmbH as an independent consulting company for the energy industry. r2b is a consulting company that supports and accompanies in a thoughtful and personal way – and does so sustainably.

Coming from the sciences, our core focus within our advisory activities is quantitative analyzes based on complex scientific methods and mathematical models. This is what the 'R' in our company name stand for: Research.

But that's not all. What counts are our clients and their business - the 'B' in our name. Here - in practice - our individual entrepreneurial thinking and action is required. The symbiosis of research to business determines our consulting approaches.

The founders of r2b are still partners today (from left to right: M. Lienert, M. Peek F. Müsgens, R. Wissen.)

Profession comes from professionalism

What sets us apart? With every project we not only advise, we also want to use our expertise to improve the energy industry. This a field for which we have been burning since studying, in which we have grown to meet challenges – and where we have found our profession. In our view, our society’s energy supply has much in common with climbing a mountain and this, not infrequently, turns into an economic and political balancing act.

Our resources must be used effectively to safely reach the top. Experienced companions are indispensable for many mountain ascents. This is precisely where we see our capabilities: showing you the right way, defining intermediate stages and working together with you to not to lose sight of the goal – no matter what challenges await along the wayside.

This passion to apply complex scientific methods to practical problems and to offer innovative services, harnesses our expertise in small projects and long-term studies right through to highly complex mathematical models and tools for the energy market.
