An entrepreneur who is doing something

Jan-Justus Schmidt explains the completed Microgrid.
Jan-Justus Schmidt explains the completed Microgrid.

Sebastian-Justus Schmidt is not only an unusual name. The man with that name is also an extraordinary person – and he does things that are anything but ordinary. In October 2019 sent out invitations to Thailand so that he could present his idea of a microgrid, a small, self-sufficient energy supply system.

Several dozens of interested people from all over the world followed his invitation and were shown the whole range of what hydrogen and fuel cell technology has to offer over a period of several days.

Sebastian-Justus Schmidt is a free-spirited man, a man with visions, who wants to change something in the world – usually in a friendly and good mood. However, the founder and owner of Enapter said that he was never satisfied with himself. Perhaps this is the reason why he does so much – in the truest sense of the word, he is an entrepreneur.

Almost exactly two years ago Schmidt took over what was left of the ACTA S.p.a. company. The Italian electrolyser manufacturer had to file for insolvency at the end of 2014 and was then rescued in 2015 by Heliocentris AG, which itself went bankrupt in October 2016. Odasco then wanted to acquire the assets in which it had just invested a mid-double-digit million amount, but this acquisition was not completed by October 2017 (see H2-international issue Apr. 2018). And that was his calling.

“Our mission is to make the production of green hydrogen cheaper than fossil fuels.”

Sebastian-Justus Schmidt, Enapter

He acquired a majority shareholding from the insolvency administrator and thus gave eleven former ACTA employees at the company headquarters in Pisa a future again. Within two years, it has grown into an internationally active team of 76 mostly young employees with further locations in Berlin, Russia and Thailand. Together they are continuing to optimise the electrolysers and highlight what is special about their technology.
