Exportinitiative Energy

The promotion of renewable energies and energy efficiency in Germany has resulted in the establishment of an industry, which offers some of the world's leading technologies. This industry encompasses several thousand small and medium-sized enterprises specialized in the development, design and production of renewable energy technologies, energy efficiency solutions, grids and storage. This is the basis for smart energy solutions. 

The transfer of energy expertise, the promotion of foreign trade and the facilitation of international development cooperation are part of the German Exportinitiative Energy, which is coordinated and financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. It offers targeted programs to meet your specific needs.

Networking & Business Opportunities

The German American Chamber of Commerce of the Southern US organizes delegation trips for business representatives between Germany and the Southern region of the US. 

Business delegations to the Southeast include a one-day conference showcasing the expertise and the latest technologies related to renewable energy and energy efficiency from Germany. In addition to that, we organize customized 1-on-1 meetings for our delegation participants in order to discuss synergies and potential partnerships with US companies. 

If you are interested in learning more about German renewable energy or energy efficiency technologies and in exploring partnership opportunities with our German companies, please contact us.
