Industrial production is one of the pillars of the German economy. Resource efficiency continues to gain in significance, as it helps increase productivity and strengthen the competitiveness of German production processes.
The working group Hydrogen in Industry and Business deals with the technological and economic effects of hydrogen on material and energetic processes and supports companies in integrating this technology into their production processes.
The working group brings together technical solutions for the design and realization of new buildings with a focus on commercial and industrial properties and takes a holistic approach to sustainable, low-emission and efficient energy supply and an optimal ambient climate in the building.
Recovering raw material from waste and old plants helps build a circular economy and combat the scarcity of resources in the energy sector. RESOURCES AND RECYCLING looks at possibilities to close the material cycle and seeks to establish connections to other working groups where they are convenient.
ENERGY STORAGE AND NETWORK SERVICES focusses on developing storage technology for electricity, heat and chemical products, and complementary services for grid operation and similar applications.
Energy conservation and energy efficiency are key factors in protecting the earth's climate and natural resources. Modern heating and cooling technology will help advance these issues in Germany.
The working group has set itself the task of developing technical solutions for the energy networks so that an affordable energy supply with a high level of security and environmental compatibility can be guaranteed even with the integration of renewable energies and the coupling of electricity and heat generation as well as the integration of the transport sector.
The energy cluster ENERGY SAXONY brings together relevant actors from industry, science, and economic policy to promote the sustainable development and commercialization of future cutting-edge technologies in the energy, mobility and ICT sector. The network currently counts 85 members that bundle their capacities and know-how.
