Upcoming German training weeks: Connect with German companies
Under the umbrella of our Project Development Programme (PDP), German Training Weeks are future-focused events that bring together innovative German energy solutions companies with potential project partners from selected countries. The idea is to facilitate first-hand experience of the relevant technologies, knowledge transfer and, not least, to provide networking opportunities, thereby sowing the seeds for fruitful international partnerships towards the global energy transition. The project development workshops for the African countries Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Ruanda and Uganda will focus on solar power and alternative power generation. Whereas, the training weeks in Pakistan (September) and Bangladesh (November) elucidate photovoltaic solutions and energy generation. In addition to technical know-how, the five-day workshops will cover the commercial and legal aspects of project development. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our training weeks will continue to take place online this year.More

Energy Efficiency Award Showcases in Slovenia
Central Energy System, airport Jože Pučnik Ljubljana
In April, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Slovenia (AHK) presented awards for energy efficiency to a cluster of outstanding projects in an initiative supported by the BMWi’s German Energy Solutions Initiative programme. The versatile projects included the Jože Pučnik Airport – Slovenia’s largest international airport near Ljubljana – where a Central Energy System was installed in 2019 to supply the entire airport complex with heating and cooling. Meanwhile, just outside Slovenia's capital, a project called ‘Low-Energy Kindergarten Kamnitnik’ is now delivering heat and cooling to a brand new nursery building tapping the potential of shallow geothermal energy. Find out more about the awarded projects and other examples of German energy solutions in Slovenia.

How farmers could profit from biogenic waste
Opens in a new window
In the future, farmers could operate micro biorefineries on their land and make intermediate products on site, thanks to a ground-breaking initiative from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the University of Hohenheim. The biogenic plant residues that are produced as agricultural by-products have a wide range of potential uses – including providing the raw materials for synthetic fuels and materials for packaging, car parts and eco-friendly furniture. A pilot plant is to be set up at the university that will serve as a blueprint for the implementation of small-scale bio-plants.

Novel desalination technique to boost hydrogen production
Opens in a new window
Two electrochemists from the Leibniz Institute for New Materials in the German state of Saarland have developed a ground-breaking technique for desalinating seawater which is of crucial importance to the Power2Gas industry. In an experiment so simple it could be carried out in high school, they used a fuel cell to first obtain freshwater from salinated water, which could then be used in the fuel cell to produce hydrogen.
