Work Experience

04/2019 – today

Project Lead

Berliner Stadtwerke KP GmbH, Berlin

As the Project Lead of Heat Production Plants I manage the renewal of heating systems in the city of Berlin. We use current technologies in combination with CHP, heat pumps, solar heating or other renewable systems. I am involved in planning and executing new projects, overvieweing the construction site and manage the projects overall success.

11/2017 – 03/2019

Project Lead

beta GmbH, Berlin

I manage a small team of engineers and clerks. Together with our Lead of Accounting we introduce new management methods optimizing workflows and reducing project costs. In addition I obtain the representation power of attorny (Vertraungsvollmacht) concerning decisions within our projects. In 2018 my team and I already realized two CHP-plant projects for which I am fully responsible. It supplies 30 to 50 terraced houses with heat and electrity.

12/2015 – 10/2017

Project Engineer

beta GmbH, Berlin

beta GmbH is an energy contractor which supplies customers with heat & electricity from small CHP plants in domestic areas. As a contractor beta GmbH carries out consulting, planning, financing and operation of the energy systems. In addition beta GmbH operates their own heating stations.

Among other tasks I manage and monitor maintenance optimization of the existing heating stations as well as the entire planning of new projects.

In my daily work I am also mainly responsible for the regulatory framework of CHP plants. This includes the EEG, EnEff, EnEv, KWKG, EnStG, StromStG and EnWG.

05/2014 – 11/2015

Project Engineer

Theilen Maschinenbau, Varel

I projected belt dryer systems for applications in the chemical and food industry worldwide. My tasks included establishing quotations and engineering dry processes. I managed projects from start to finish. Part of it was defining the project's goal with the customers on site followed by the specifications of the dryer system. This also included choosing component suppliers and change management.


10/2012 – 03/2014

Master of Science

Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg
Postgraduate Programme Renewable Energy

During this international study program I obtained practical and theoretical knowledge about renewable energy systems. The program included a 2-month internship abroad. I specialized in “wind energy systems”.

Master Thesis (M. Sc.)

Topic: “Study of a wind hydrogen storage system analyzing different technological configurations and wind power predictions”

The thesis examined a specified wind hydrogen storage model using MatLab. Overspeed's part in the government funded “HyWindBalance” project was to provide a feasibility study.

Overall M. Sc. grade: 1.70

09/2008 – 03/2012

Bachelor of Engineering

Jade University of Applied Science, Wilhelmshaven

Maschinenbau (Mechanical Engineering)

Beside further knowledge in classic mechanical engineering I learned about heating, air conditioning, photovoltaic and solar thermal systems.

Bachelor Thesis (B. Eng.)

Institut für Solarenergieforschung, Hameln

Topic: “Temperature load and heat loss of highly efficient, insulated-glazed flat plate collectors”

My objective was to analyze the usability and temperature stability of a sealing compound used in the flat plate collector. In a high temperature test stand I analyzed its ageing behaviour in stagnation. In order to examine the temperature profiles, I simulated construction variations of the flat plate collector in Heat2.

Overall B. Eng. grade: 1.83
