The German capital region is a pioneer for innovative energy and environmental technologies on a national and european level. The future supply and use of energy will create new and diverse potential for technologies and technology-related services. The most important factor here is the increasing integration of renewable energies. The capital region is a leader in the development of smart grids, storage concepts and innovative solutions for synchronizing energy demand and supply. With its distinctive industrial and research landscape and outstanding infrastructure, it is the largest real-world laboratory for the energy transition and urban environmental technologies in Germany.
The energy technology cluster, one of five clusters in the capital region bundling innovative growth sectors and future fields, brings together around 6,500 companies with almost 60,000 employees generating sales of around 28 billion euros. More than 6.4 percent of employees with social security contributions in Berlin develop energy-efficient technologies and products or offer energy and environmental services. This puts Berlin’s employment rate in this sector at an above-average level compared to other major cities.
