Industrial Production is one of Germany's most important economic pillars. To increase the competitiveness of German production processes, it is increasingly important to boost productivity through resource efficiency.
When it comes to the transformation of the energy supply structure in the context of a successful implementation of the turnaround in energy policy, there is a need for the integration of electrical energy, heat and transportation. As this challenging task cannot be handled with a single technology, the working group ENERGY SOLUTIONS FOR BUILDINGS AND SMART CITIES is commited to a comprehensive approach.
This working group is dedicated to the legal framework conditions in the energy sector at European and national level which are relevant to the infrastructural challenges in the course of the energy transition process.
The working group "Resources and Recycling" aims at exploiting potentials of the raw material recycling of waste / old facilities for closing material cycles in view of limited resources. It wants to consider issues of recycling economy concerned with energy production and develop innovative approaches at the interface to other working groups.
The demands of ENERGY SAXONY as an energy cluster include the transfer of new technologies in practical application. This is the objective of the working group "Storage and Network Services" for the electric, thermal and chemical storage of energy as well as consequent services for the operation of networks and similar applications
The objective, to advance the climate and ressource protection, can be realised by means of technologies contributing to energy conversation and increase of energy efficiency. The use of modern technologies for heating and cooling supply offer a high potential.
The Energy Saxony e.V. counts at the moment 62 members of the Saxon energy area. Various actors from industry, science and policy get together and combine their know-how in the energy cluster to develop and exploit solutions for sustainable energy technologies.
