German Energy Solutions Initiative

With energy prices on the rise and fossil fuel resources becoming scarce, both economic prosperity and competitiveness increasingly depend on our ability to use new energy sources and energy efficiency solutions. This applies to all countries worldwide. The use of innovative energy solutions offers enormous potential for energy conservation in all fields.

The promotion of smart and sustainable energy solutions in Germany for many years has resulted in the establishment of an industry which offers some of the world’s leading technologies.

This industry encompasses several thousand small and medium-sized enterprises specialised in the development, design and production of renewable energy systems, energy efficiency solutions, smart grids and storage technologies. Also new energy technologies like Power-to-Gas and fuel cells are the basis for cutting-edge energy solutions.

Benefits of using smart and sustainable energy solutions

  • Contribution to innovation, growth and employment
  • Independence from fossil fuel imports
  • Reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and contribution to climate change mitigation

The initiative offers:

  •     networking and business opportunities both in your country and in Germany
  •     showcasing of reference projects
  •     capacity building

Here you can learn more about the services provided by the German Energy Solutions Initiative.

The initiative creates benefits for Germany and the participating countries by:

  • boosting global interest in sustainable energy solutions
  • encouraging the use of renewables, energy efficiency technologies, smart grids and storage technologies
  • improving economic, technical and political cooperation between Germany and partner countries
  • generating jobs in Germany and abroad

Coordinated and financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), the initiative is implemented in coordination with German industry associations as members of the advisory council and in cooperation with partners such as the German Chambers of Commerce Abroad (the AHKs), the German Energy Agency (dena), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and further international project partners und service providers. The coordination office is the central agency for all questions relating to the German Energy Solutions Initiative. For more information, please contact the coordination office.

Working in conjunction with one another, the OAV and Baden-Württemberg International (bw-i) were tasked with implementing and assisting a range of the initiative's measures.
