Political panel discussion on the future of energy supply at the ENERGY SAXONY SUMMIT 2016

Moderation of an energy dialogue process

The large variety  of Saxon competencies for the realisation of innovative solutions for the new energy system implies different approaches and views of the individual players. This leads to questions about the  conrete requirements for future products and services as well as to the need for coordination and harmonization of the varied interests represented by technology suppliers, end users and research institutes. In the context of numerous cluster activities, such as workshops, technical exhibitions, working group meetings etc. ENERGY SAXONY moderates a public discourse on recent trends and developments. This dialogue also involves political decision-makers and raises their awareness for the requirements of the Saxon research and industry players.

Press and Public Relations

Another key responsibility of the Cluster Management is the proactive dissemination and promotion of the approaches, projects, products and services developed by the cluster members in regional and supraregional media. Besides the regular publication of press releases on the latest developments and activities of the network players, ENERGY SAXONY organises press coverage and support from political representatives when it comes to ceremonial initiations of pilot plants or the start of demonstration projects.
