The shift to sustainable energy – a chance to upgrade your production

Companies looking to establish business with sustainable production concepts are especially welcome in Brandenburg. This also applies to companies that manufacture products for climate protection and the energy transition or work towards future mobility with their business models.

Running a production facility in Brandenburg means that the company can use energy from renewable sources. But that’s not the only benefit: Brandenburg meets all of the technological and usage requirements for sustainable, climate-friendly production.

Green hydrogen, innovative storage technologies, virtual power plants, smart power grids, energy efficiency strategies or power-to-x technologies all provide the back-up you need for your green production in Brandenburg.

We invite you to join us

Industrial production and climate friendliness are not contradictory – especially when production is based somewhere as ideal as Brandenburg. With expert guidance and support, the Economic Development Agency Brandenburg (WFBB) can help you establish your factory in Brandenburg – just as it has done for more than 1,800 investment projects over the last 20 years. 

Companies are now also supported on a scientific basis with their transition to decarbonised, sustainable production methods – by the new DLR Institute of Low-Carbon Industrial Processes in the city of Cottbus.

Do you want to contribute to climate-friendly production? Then join us in Brandenburg!

Cooperate with successful pioneers

In the Feldheim district of the city of Treuenbrietzen, the Brandenburg company Energiequelle has developed one of the most impressive master plans for a decentralised, renewable energy supply for companies, private households and municipalities.

From wind energy to green hydrogen

ENERTRAG AG from Prenzlau runs Germany’s first hybrid power plant, which uses electrolysis to produce green hydrogen from superfluous wind energy. Two neighbouring thermal power stations can be operated with a mixture of hydrogen and biogas.
