Tobias studied energy and environmental management at the university of Flensburg, before starting his career at car manufacturer Audi, where he developed power purchase concepts of the first industrial-scale power-to-gas plant. He supported the market introduction of the new A4 and A5 g-tron models, which were supplied with renewable fuels from power-to-gas and biogas plants in a balancing concept for three years, making them almost climate neutral. But the development of renewable fuels strongly depends on the political framework and for that reason, Tobias co-ordinates these activities within VDA, the German automotive industry association, in Brussels.
