Brandenburg is Germany’s renewable energies leader. It is no coincidence that Brandenburg was lauded with the Leitstern (Lodestar) award in 2008, 2010, and 2012 by the German Renewable Energies Agency for being the best German state for renewable energy. In light of international and national changes in energy policy, Brandenburg is planning ahead to 2030 to maintain its leadership role and continue developing its own policy with the "Energy Strategy 2030” initiative. The use of renewable energy for electromobility is an integral component.
Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG), the Berlin transport company, is a modern service provider using innovative strategies – also in electromobility – to face the challenges of the future. Network density and the quality of Berlin’s public transport system rank highly when compared internationally, and with its 24-hour service, Berlin tops the charts. Each year, the transport service clocks more than 250 million kilometers. This translates as the equivalent of one round trip to the moon or 18 times around the earth every day.
DLR is the national aeronautics and space research centre of the Federal Republic of Germany.

DLR is also the umbrella organisation for the nation’s largest project management agency. DLR has approximately 8000 employees at 16 locations in Germany: Cologne (headquarters), Augsburg, Berlin, Bonn, Braunschweig, Bremen, Goettingen, Hamburg, Juelich, Lampoldshausen, Neustrelitz, Oberpfaffenhofen, Stade, Stuttgart, Trauen, and Weilheim. DLR also has offices in Brussels, Paris, Tokyo and Washington D.C.
Four of the TU Berlin’s seven institutes and one of its central research institutes belong to the Electromobility Research Network. The research done includes such fields as storage technology, electric drives, and driving safety, while also addressing the question of how the future of cities might be shaped in the age of electromobility. The network is creating a platform for joint projects and intensifies cooperation with partner institutions of higher learing in Germany and abroad, as well as with public and private institutes.
