LONDON, UK: bp announced the appointment of Anja-Isabel Dotzenrath as its new executive vice president (EVP), gas & low carbon energy, and member of bp’s leadership team. Until recently she was chief executive officer of RWE Renewables, one of the world’s leading renewables businesses. Dotzenrath will join bp on 1 March, 2022.

bp also announced separately, Dev Sanyal, bp’s current EVP gas & low carbon energy, will leave the company at the end of 2021. 

“I am delighted that Anja has chosen to join us and help lead bp’s transformation from international oil company to integrated energy company. She is exactly the right person for bp, at exactly the right time. I look forward to welcoming Anja and working together to create value as we drive bp towards net zero and help the world get there too,” said Bernard Looney, bp chief executive.

Dotzenrath is chief executive of RWE Renewables, one of the world’s largest renewable power companies and the second largest offshore wind player globally. Integrating the renewables businesses of E.ON and Innogy into RWE formed RWE Renewables in 2019. Before becoming chief executive of RWE Renewables on its formation, she led E.ON’s Climate & Renewables business as chief executive and previously chief operating officer.

“I spent much of my career building renewables businesses and I’m thrilled about the opportunity ahead with bp. Its global reach, ambitious low carbon growth targets and vision for a net zero future are a great platform for making a material contribution to a more sustainable and inclusive energy future. By integrating gas, renewables, hydrogen and biofuels at scale we can build a world-leading business in low carbon,” said Dotzenrath.

bp’s strategy aims to significantly expand its low carbon energy interests, with a target of having developed 20GW net of renewable assets by 2025 and aiming for 50GW by 2030. bp expects to invest around $2 billion in low carbon energy in 2021, rising to $3-4 billion in 2025 and aiming for around $5 billion in 2030.
