Cooperation between the City and Development Association
Numerous Activities for regional Stakeholders
The Renewable Energy Hamburg Cluster established itself as the key regional sector network for the Hamburg city region. The cluster was founded in January 2011 by the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg and association for the development of the Renewable Energy Cluster in Hamburg. Both hold 51 and 49 percent ownership respectively of the Erneuerbare Energien Hamburg Clusteragentur GmbH company. The managing director is Jan Rispens, who together with his team coordinates activities and represents the cluster externally. In this way, specialist knowledge from the industry can be optimally pooled through networking by the development association with a current membership of over 190 companies and institutions and through the operative work by the agency.
The cluster itself networks with other regions in Germany, Europe and the world. In 2018 a cooperation with the Prefecture of Fukushima in Japan was founded. As key markets for wind energy in Europe the cluster agency identified countries such as Denmark, France and Sweden.
In the EU interreg project Northern Connections the Renewable Energy Hamburg Cluster Agency more than 20 international partners in the North Sea Region are working on smart energy solutions.
