Energy solutions made in Germany

Germany is aiming to be climate-neutral by 2045 and plans to phase out coal-based power generation by 2038, which will require a comprehensive decarbonization of industry. The transition away from fossil fuels towards renewable energies and technologies such as green hydrogen is crucial, especially in sectors such as the steel and chemical industries. Despite rising energy costs, this transformation offers companies the opportunity to remain competitive in the long term through innovation and energy efficiency and to actively contribute to climate protection. With extensive investments in photovoltaics and wind energy, Germany is aiming to achieve its climate targets and future-proof the market for renewable energies.
