Berlin: The City of Renewable Energy

Since the Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011, Germany has been one of the most committed countries in Europe to combating nuclear disarmament.

With a strong push from the government, and backed by the Renewable Energy Sources Act which came into force on 1 April 2000, Germany has been dedicated to the development of green and safe new energy sources. Germany’s abolishment of nuclear arms has also contributed to new paths for energy development being carved out in its capital, Berlin. As the political center of Germany, Berlin has set the pace for new energy technologies within Germany and around the world. Berlin is not only a base for energy and spare parts production, but also a place for research and development of energy technologies. A total of 450 renowned energy supply companies are based in Berlin, offering a full range of services.

Berlin holds different events every day which have enabled the city to provide a greater understanding of new energy opportunities compared to other European cities. In Germany, Munich is known as a key strategic city for industrial machinery, Frankfurt is regarded as the financial center, and Stuttgart is referred to as the Kingdom of Automobiles. Now, Berlin has a new title – the City of Renewable Energy.
