ICN Passport Regional Promotion, 5th edition: Renewable Energy Hamburg, Germany
Hamburg has the highest per capita GDP of any state in Germany. It is also at the forefront of the energy revolution. Scientists, entrepreneurs and architects cooperate to make the city even greener. Rapeseed, field grass and maize are traditionally farmed in the Hamburg region, making an excellent basis for the biomass and biogas industry. With excellent wind conditions, the Hamburg city region between the Baltic and the North Sea is an ideal location for wind turbines.
The EEHH “Renewable Energy Hamburg” network (or “cluster”) 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.
