Green tech “Made in Germany”
The energy transition, which aims to achieve greenhouse gas neutrality by 2045, is a catalyst for new jobs – hundreds of thousands of people are already employed in this sector in Germany, particularly in small and medium-sized enterprises. Germany’s leading sector – the automotive industry – is also becoming greener: the Federal Government is promoting innovative approaches to the further development of e-mobility and the continued expansion of charging points.
What is more, green technologies from Germany are in great demand worldwide, especially in the area of renewables. The environmental engineering sector in Germany is creating new innovation not only in the energy sector, but also in the development of new information and communication technologies. Renewables are already an important source of electricity in Germany today. In 2021, more than 41% of the electricity in Germany was already generated from wind, sun, water or biomass.
