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.

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.
Many companies have already started sustainable production here
Brandenburg companies are already using the state’s location assets in green production. Here are some excellent examples – and ideal partners.
As early as 2017 the entire production line of Mineralquellen Bad Liebenwerda GmbH from Elbe-Elster switched to 100% green energy. The company has been climate-neutral since 2021.
BASF is driving the chemical industry’s shift to sustainable energy at its production site in Schwarzheide and will be increasing its use of emission-free wind and solar power.
As part of its Steel4Future strategy, ArcelorMittal in Eisenhüttenstadt is aiming for a long-term, direct reduction of iron ore by using green hydrogen and is planning to use an electric arc furnace for climate-neutral production.
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.
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.
The East Brandenburg hydrogen cluster is working towards connecting the region’s current and potential industrial green hydrogen production sites to the future European hydrogen network.
