Volkswagen has hired Elke Temme, a well-known executive at RWE, to head the automaker’s newly formed division for energy and electric vehicle charging, it said on Monday.

Temme’s move is the recent indication of the growing convergence of the autos and energy sectors amid an expected increase in demand for electric vehicles.

Most recently, Temme was a chief operating officer of Innogy eMobility solutions. Innogy was carved out from RWE in 2016 and later broken up in an asset swap with E.ON, which bought the firm’s emobility activities in the process.

Temme will be in charge of pooling and managing present group activities in the fields of energy, charging services, charging equipment and charging infrastructure throughout all brands, Volkswagen said.

“With Elke Temme, we have won a proven expert in the fields of energy and charging for our company,” said Thomas Schmall, a Volkswagen board member.
