About dena

We are the Deutsche Energie-Agentur – the German Energy Agency

dena is a centre of excellence for the applied energy transition and climate protection. We work with stakeholders from across all sectors, on both a national and international level. As a think tank, we study the challenges of building a climate-neutral society and support the German government in achieving its energy and climate policy objectives.

We develop solutions for climate neutrality and put them into practice. To do this, we bring together partners from politics, business, the scientific community and all parts of society – with enthusiasm for one of the most exciting tasks of our time.
