Climate protection no longer knows any borders. And security of energy supply has also long been a transnational issue. As a result, the worldwide demand for efficiency technologies is growing, to meet the climate protection targets that countries are aiming for, and to deal with increasing energy costs. The potential for energy savings and CO2 reduction is huge – especially in Russia and China. On its own estimate, for example, Russia could save between 40 and 50 per cent of its energy consumption. And in China a total of 20 new mega-cities will emerge by 2020. The limited energy resources mean that China is therefore facing particular challenges and these are increasing interest in renewable energies.
Energy efficiency operates on a global scale
dena is setting an example internationally with its expertise on systems that covers all technologies, a pronounced understanding of the interaction between the market and regulatory law, as well as excellent contacts on the ground in business and in politics. dena’s aim is to establish bilateral cooperation in the areas of energy efficiency, renewable energies and climate protection. In close cooperation with the national stakeholders, it prepares the market for innovative standards and technologies, arranges knowledge transfer and promotes the strategic development of pilot projects. dena supports national governments in finding the means and the instruments to generate sustainable growth. This opens up new export markets for German business in energy efficiency products and energy services.
