Introduction to the German Energy Solutions Initiative

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 (AHKs), the German Energy Agency (dena), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and further international project partners and service providers.

Around 700 companies participate in over 170 events and projects every year. The annual budget of the German Energy Solutions Initiative amounts to more than €20 million. The promotion of smart and sustainable energy in Germany 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 specialized in the development, design and production of renewable energy systems, energy efficiency solutions, smart grids and storage technologies.

With this level of expertise and experience in the promotion and deployment of renewable and smart energy solutions, Germany is a perfect partner for business cooperation. The German Energy Solutions Initiative aims to strengthen the position of German energy technologies on the international market and support firms to find adequate partners to market their solutions abroad.
