Kim Kohlmeyer

Kim Johanna B. Kohlmeyer is a fully qualified lawyer and political scientist. At Arepo, she leads the evaluation of the Berlin Energy and Climate Protection Programme (Berliner Energie und Klimaschutzprogramm, BEK), and supports various projects regarding legal issues.

She was one of the authors of a study that identified 10 levers to achieve climate neutrality in the areas of energy and transport by 2035. In a project for the Hessian Ministry for the Environment that aimed to advance the development of the Integrated Climate Protection Plan for the state of Hesse, she was responsible for supporting the calculation of sectoral targets as well as the identification of legal options for the state and the resulting set of instruments.

After her training at the “Normative Orders” Cluster of Excellence and at the law firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, she dedicated herself to the energy and transport transition. As a lawyer, she advised on renewable energy legislation – in particular the German Renewable Energy Law (Erneuerbare-Energien-Gesetz, EEG) and electricity tax law. In addition, she worked on various projects drafting legislation in the field of climate legislation. She gained experience in climate policy consulting at the NGO GermanZero e.V., among others, where she worked on legal and political issues for the development of a comprehensive climate law for Germany with concrete implementation possibilities.

With her company noord transport, she advocates for climate-neutral urban logistics by shifting the last mile to cargo bikes and implementing a hub system in Kiel. In her spare time, the extreme and former professional athlete is committed to shifting the public perception of the bicycle as a means of transport and its possibilities.
