Green City Freiburg Regional Cluster

Climate Protection and Energy Efficiency in Industry Park North

The current shift towards renewable energies presents companies with an economic advantage. One of this change’s most important elements is the networking of all major stakeholders and necessary components to build a strong foundation for the intelligent management of energy production, storage, and use.

With this in mind, the City of Freiburg, badenova, Fraunhofer ISE, and FWTM have developed a new approach within the framework of the “Green City Freiburg” concept: Founded in February 2014, the "Green Industry Park Freiburg" initiative aims to work side-by-side with local companies to transform Freiburg’s largest and oldest industrial area into a nationwide role model for a future-oriented, sustainable, and energy- and resource-efficient industrial area, as well as develop a “brand” with which companies can identify. This involves bringing together companies and individual business solutions and the joint development of new, innovative projects and pilot projects, as well as the identification and use of potential savings and cooperation possibilities.
