The strength of local research and development is based, among other things, on networking. Since 2011, companies and scientific institutions in the whole of Berlin/Brandenburg have been working together in the energy technology cluster. By pooling their expertise, the participants can achieve the optimal transfer of scientific knowledge into industrial processes and products.
For the Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg, the integration of regenerative energies and the resulting requirements and opportunities for storage, distribution networks and sector coupling (heat supply, energy storage, mobility etc.) is a major research topic. The Brandenburg companies in the energy technology sector are also increasingly recognising these topics as an opportunity for new products, services and business areas.
