Erik Elektro and the children of sustainability

Introduction to the play by Dr. Andreas Pfeiffer and Sebastian Jagsch

Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, dear readers of “Behind the Scenes”

Welcome to a very special performance. My name is Andreas Pfeiffer and I am here with my colleague Sebastian Jagsch. In 2023 we have our “Behind the Scenes” series. began, in which we immersed ourselves deeply in the world of electromobility and sustainable transformation. Tonight we go one step further and present you a unique play, created with the support of #ChatGPT, that takes the core content and themes of our series and transforms them into a captivating narrative.



Our piece, "Erik Elektro and the Children of Sustainability", takes you on a journey through the dynamic world of electromobility, a world that sits at the intersection of technology, innovation and sustainability. At greenventors we have made it our mission to build the bridge between vision and reality. As my colleague Sebastian Jagsch can report from his experience in the automotive industry, technological innovations are not just about new products, but also about the transformation of business models - a key aspect of reacting flexibly to new developments and continuously striving for improvements.

Our guiding principle at greenventors is to represent the spirit of invention and implementation in the field of green energy and mobility transformation. In view of climate change, it is particularly important for us to support companies on their path to greater sustainability. As an independent management consultancy, we actively support our customers from the energy, oil and real estate sectors on their way to becoming #netzero.

In our piece tonight you'll see these principles unfold in the fictional world of Erik Elektro. You will witness how characters from different perspectives – economics, ecology and social justice – come together to shape a shared future in electromobility. We hope that you will be inspired by this presentation and gain insights into the diverse aspects of electromobility and its role in our society.

We wish you an entertaining and informative evening. Thank you for being here today to share this journey with us
