“At a time when global challenges require urgent solutions, innovative public-private collaboration is needed to turn ideas into action,’ said Børge Brende, President of the World Economic Forum. ‘The Forum provides the structure for developing research, alliances and frameworks that foster mission-oriented collaboration throughout the year. Next week’s Annual Meeting will serve as an accelerator for this collaboration, deepening the connections between leaders and between initiatives.”

So the question for the Heads of State and Government in Davos 2024 is: “Will the coming year be a time of “perma-crisis”? Or will 2024 be a time of resolution, resilience and recovery?”

Since K2 Systems was founded in 2004, over 32 GW have been installed in over 130 countries with our systems. These generate around 100 gigawatt hours per day. We are getting ever closer to our goal of a rapid, sustainable energy transition.

Katharina David, CEO of K2 Systems GmbH, was interviewed on the subject of solar energy in connection with the World Economic Forum in Davos. “As the market leader in Europe, one key to our success as a medium-sized company is that we rely on strong cooperation with customers, suppliers and key players in the industry in order to implement the energy transition quickly and easily together,” says Katharina David in an interview with TV presenter Andrew Wilson.

The World Economic Forum’s interview series aims to discuss some of the world’s most important global challenges. In the snowy mountains of Davos, leading CEOs from around the world discuss real-world problems.
