Environmental Technology

Many of the region's enterprises involved in vehicle, plant and machinery construction have recognised that the intelligent combination of commercial and environmental interests holds enormous potential for the future. Environmental technology has thus become an additional central field of technology for the location – over 300 firms represent the region's Clean Energy Cluster.

They include not only major global enterprises and medium-sized businesses, but also tradesmen, specialised architects and consultants and innovative new businesses. They supply components for photovoltaic systems or wind generators, for example, or produce ready-to-use biogas and hydroelectric plants. Other companies in the Stuttgart Region develop fuel cell systems, construct pumps for solar collectors or specialise in energy-saving house and air-conditioning technologies.

Clean Tech in regional research and cooperative projects
Many of the institutes at the region's universities and technical colleges are involved in sustainable energy and environment technology. They conduct research into the utilisation of renewable energy sources and efficient, low-emission energy use. Researchers experiment with new materials, evolve innovative storage technologies and test electronic drive systems. Stuttgart University also boasts Germany's first (endowed) research chair in wind energy.

The clean-tech cluster initiative of the Stuttgart Region's Office for the Promotion of Trade and Industry brings together business, scientific and public institutions, with the aim of accelerating an awareness of the Stuttgart Region as a leading location for environmental technology. The initiative's "Treffpunkt" programme of events on themes such as fuel cell systems, climate protection or biomass has already spread far beyond the region's boundaries to become one of the most important venues in the German clean-tech sector.
