Our topics & projects

Energising tomorrow’s world

How can we improve energy efficiency? How should we build the energy systems of the future? How do we bring together people who will make the difference?

And how can we strengthen international cooperation? Our projects design energy for tomorrow’s world.

Energy efficiency

The energy transition calls for innovation and a fresh mindset. Our current level of energy consumption must be halved as quickly as possible. And it is imperative to satisfy this demand using regenerative energy sources that protect our climate and environment. The energy transition will be more successful if we use electricity, heat and fuel efficiently.

Energy-Efficient Building in China

dena has been developing and implementing energy-efficient construction projects in China since 2006. Advanced technology and experience gathered in Germany are adapted and transferred to the conditions in the respective region, using experts on the ground. The aim is to improve the market conditions for energy efficiency technologies, impart knowledge and establish concepts suitable for mass marketing of energy efficiency in China.

Overview

  • Project start: 2006
  • Since 2010, dena has launched 30 pilot projects
  • First efficient house standard introduced in Hebei in 2015
  • Partners: Construction ministries of both countries, the Center of Science and Technology of Construction (CSTC), the  Chinese Society for Urban Studies (CSUS), and various provinces, specialist associations, and German and Chinese companies.
