About us

The Deutsche Energie-Agentur GmbH (dena) – the German Energy Agency – is the centre of expertise for energy efficiency, renewable energy sources and intelligent energy systems. As "Agency for Applied Energy Transition" we contribute to the attainment of energy and climate-political objectives by developing solutions and putting them into practice, both nationally and internationally. In order to do this, we bring partners from politics and businesses together - with an enthusiasm for one of the most exciting challenges of our time.

We focus our efforts in the building, power and transport consumption sectors, as well as on issues relating to energy generation, networks and storage. We implement model projects, advise politicians, manufacturers and service providers, qualify multipliers, inform consumers, build up grids, encourage international exchanges and develop future scenarios. dena primarily focuses on market instruments and innovative energy services, and we view the energy system as a whole, because it is becoming more and more vital to link the many different parts of the energy world.

The following chart summarises dena's focus topics and key areas:

Currently, dena is running approximately 80 projects, with around 185 employees using various skill sets for the energy transition:  Engineers, physicists, economists, ecologists, geographers, architects, lawyers, political scientists and communication experts. The dena is structured in three sectors: Energy-efficient buildings, energy systems and energy services, renewable energy and energy-efficient mobility. Furthermore, there are the two service sectors, communication and administration.
