Energy technology

Success through networking

Be it mobility, living, or working: Energy is indispensable. Energy ensures that our basic needs are met, and it is a prerequisite for a functioning economy. The transition from fossil fuels to a supply of sustainably generated power has become one of the leading challenges of our decade. At the same time, energy technology is a major economic factor: Germany’s energy technology sector with around 250,000 employees generates turnaround of about €13.4 billion. The objective of the Energy Technology Cluster is to push collaboration between companies and scientific institutions to boost new developments and to take advantage of these challenges for the transformation of the energy industry.


Future topics

  • Energy efficiency
  • Energy storage
  • Energy ecosystem considerations

Participating in the cluster activities opens up for players opportunities for the regional, national, and international networking, the exchange of experiences between indus­tries, and the launch of joint projects.


  • Knowledge transfer and cooperation partner brokering
  • Events, joint trade fair stands, and trade shows
  • Project initiation and support

The Energy Technology Cluster organizes focused con­ventions, forums, and cluster gatherings to provide infor­mation about trends in science, industry, and the politi­cal context. Beyond that, the cluster actively participates in national and international projects, moderates working groups, coordinates joint projects with industry and sci­ence partners, and prepares professional studies on cur­rent energy topics.

By working with other networks and clusters (cross-clus­ter projects), the Energy Technology Cluster has access to all relevant sectors. This supports the comprehensive net­working of its players and partners along with the pres­entation of their own projects at trade shows, trade fairs, and conventions.

Daily energy news and industry events are published on the web platform. In the »Energy Transition« portal, pro­fessional articles by renowned authors provide information about energy generation and supply topics as well as cor­responding technologies.
