Laura Krug works on shaping an energy transition that is compatible with social challenges, with a geographical concentration on Germany and the EU. She contributes to the Green Growth process and concentrates specifically on a resilient energy transition in Berlin and the Spree-Neiße district. In particular, she aims to create a more profound dialogue between actors from civil society, economy, academia and politics by leading political economy analysis and coalition building through multi-stakeholder decision theatres within the ESRa project.
Before joining GCF, Laura worked as a project manager with Deutsche Umwelthilfe (DUH), where she was responsible for European energy and climate policy. She advocated for stronger ambition in the Clean Energy Package, analyzed the German NECP and worked on a future-oriented Green Deal for Europe. Previously, Laura worked on CO2 mitigation in road transport and on particulate matter emissions caused by wood combustion in the Transport and Air Pollution department. Prior to working for DUH, she contributed to the efforts of various organizations including GIZ and FAO.
Laura holds a master’s degree in Political Science from Freie Universität Berlin including semesters abroad at Universidad Complutense de Madrid and McGill University in Montreal. Her master thesis analyzes the implementation dynamics of projects under the Clean Development Mechanism.
