Our fields of action

Designing the energy transition

We drive the energy transition. In order to do this, we cooperate with partners and customers in business and politics, appreciating the bigger picture across all industries and relevant fields of action. Together we identify solutions, develop strategies and implement pilot projects.

Optimise

Efficiency first

Many people will initially think of renewable energies when they hear the term “energy transition”. But increasing energy efficiency is at least as important. Let’s not forget: the greenest kilowatt hour is the one that is never produced. The expertise that dena brings to the table makes it an essential partner to industry and politics in the development and implementation of energy efficiency strategies. A valuable source of information, dena promotes networks and develops solutions.

Urban energy transition: Driven by the cities

Global growth is taking place above all in urban centres: Already today, more than half the world population lives in cities, and seven out of ten people are expected to do so by the year 2050. Hence, ecological urban redevelopment is an urgent issue in many countries. However, the challenges on the various continents can vary considerably. We present some perspectives and show you what dena has to do with them.

Integrate

Energy systems of the future

Step by step, Germany’s energy supply is switching to renewable energy sources. This process comes with a new set of challenges. Production will depend increasingly on the weather and will be provided by larger numbers of decentralised units. The many different components of the energy system need to be connected and coordinated intelligently. dena develops solutions for an integrated energy system – in close dialogue with partners in all the relevant sectors.

Project

Digital Energy World

During the second phase of the energy transition, digitalisation will increasingly demand from all participants systematic action outside of defined structures, as well as needs-based solutions. This can only work if the actors think and act within a cross-sectoral framework. This approach will help develop new business ideas and marketable products.

Position

Stakeholder dialogue

The energy transition will only succeed if everyone contributes. It will also require expert mediation between the stakeholders in industry, politics and society and their varied interests. Dialogue is an essential component in finding the best solutions for the energy transition. dena brings the stakeholders together. It provides platforms for communication, mediating independently between the interests of the individual companies and industries.

Cooperate

The international energy transition

Germany is not an island – especially when it comes to energy. The nations of Europe face the challenge of building a sustainable supply system. Interest in efficient and green energy technologies is growing around the world. Here, Germany’s energy transition is a shop window for practical solutions and innovation. dena builds on this position by launching pilot projects that advance the cause of international cooperation in issues of relevance to the energy transition.
