Renewable Energy Hamburg
The Hamburg city region, from Cuxhaven to Lübeck, and from Neumünster to Lüneburg, is today already the centre of north German activities. Everywhere in the Hamburg city region, entrepreneurs, scientists and politicians are working to make renewable energy even more of a success. A wide range of industrial and service companies have settled in the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. They range from systems and component manufacturers to project management, installation and maintenance firms and companies offering consultation, certification, financing, insurance and logistics, through to energy providers and traders.
The EEHH “Renewable Energy Hamburg” network was set up in order to strengthen and promote cooperation in the sector. It works to pool the wide-ranging skills among companies, research facilities and institutions. It also provides a platform for dialogue among stakeholders, and promotes interfaces to other sectors, such as logistics. The Academy of renewable energies is a member of the EEHH.
