Energy technology

Elektroauto an Ladestation

Berlin is both a centre for the production of components for energy generation and distribution and home to considerable R&D in energy technology issues.

In Berlin and Brandenburg, about 6,500 energy technology companies with over 60,500 employees generate sales of approx. €29 billion each year. Numerous research institutions and universities are conducting first-class research and teaching in all areas of energy technology. Major solar industry associations and energy agencies have their headquarters here.

The city of Berlin wants to develop into a climate-neutral city over the next few decades and, like other major cities worldwide, respond to the challenges of climate change. Efficient technologies are being developed and tested in a variety of projects here, e.g. in the fields of lighting technology, consumption visualization, smart home technologies, lightweight construction, HVAC, efficient distribution and storage of heating and cooling, as well as building systems.
