There are two boards stipulated in the foundation statutes:
a) The board of directors takes on decisions
b) The board of trustees plays an advisory role
The board of directors is given suggestions by the board of trustees and decides upon these which of the applications should be funded.
The board of trustees advises the board of directors on the realization of the foundation's goals. It submits proposals regarding potential scholarship holders and laureates as well as projects for research, education, or development aid in the area of renewable energies.
