A fact-finding mission for company representatives and decision-makers from Croatia to Germany from 20 - 23 March 2023 will enable you to gather first-hand information on energy storage systems, electro mobility as well as green hydrogen and to establish business contacts with German companies. The fact-finding mission includes a networking event and on-site visits of best-practice projects.

Meet German companies

The networking event and information seminar will be held on March 20, 2023 in Stuttgart. The event provides insight into the current situation, trends and prospects for German energy solutions with regard to the grid integration of renewable energies, storage technologies and business models for charging infrastructures. You have the chance to exchange knowledge with German experts and company representatives. On the following days, on-site visits to see best-practice technology applications and/or measures are planned for you in Stuttgart and surrounding area.

You will benefit from a comprehensive information and visitor programme designed to foster the transfer of expertise. Representatives from state-owned and private companies, grid operators, ministries, public authorities and energy associations who want to gain a first-hand insight into German energy solutions are welcome to join the fact-finding-mission.

Market information

There are currently around 80 electric vehicle models from German manufacturers on the market (as of July 2022). A total of 55,570 normal charging points (max 22 kW) and 10,231 fast charging points (over 22kW) were reported to the Federal Network Agency as being in operation on August 1, 2022. This represents an increase of 33% compared to the previous year. To make the use of electric vehicles more attractive, the German government has decided to provide additional stimulus for electromobility. The overall package consists of temporary purchase incentives, further funding for the expansion of the charging infrastructure, additional efforts in the public procurement of electric vehicles, and tax measures.

In 2021, a good 167,000 purely battery-electric passenger cars and just under 139,000 plug-in hybrids were newly registered in the first half of the year; together with other alternative drive systems such as plug-in hybrids, gas or hydrogen drive, the figure was a good 548,000 cars. This means that around 44% of newly registered vehicles are equipped with an alternative drive system.
