The solar power industry
The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg is also a central planning location for solar farms in Germany and across the world. Plans are laid for a large number of solar energy projects in the city on the river Elbe.
With companies such as Conergy Deutschland, Voltwerk and Velux, the technical know-how needed is available directly within the region. Many companies, such as Capital Stage, Colexon, Luxcara and HSH Nordbank, are also involved in the planning, funding and realisation of these plants, and have their headquarters in Hamburg.
