dena is Germany’s centre of expertise for energy efficiency, renewable energy sources and intelligent energy systems. As the "Agency for the Applied Energy Transition" we contribute to the attainment of energy and climate policy objectives.
We develop solutions and put them into practice, both nationally and internationally. In order to achieve this, we bring together partners from politics and industry across all sectors - with an enthusiasm for one of the most exciting challenges of our time.
We focus our efforts on the building, power and transport consumption sectors, as well as on issues relating to energy generation, storage, networking, and digitalisation. We realise pilot projects, advise politicians, manufacturers and service providers, qualify multipliers, inform consumers, build networks, encourage international exchanges and develop future scenarios.
To do so, dena primarily focuses on market instruments and innovative business models. And we view the energy system as a whole, because it is becoming increasingly vital to link the many different parts of the world of energy to each other. dena’s shareholders are the Federal Republic of Germany and the KfW Group.
