Experts from Germany Trade & Invest (GTAI) and the WindNODE consortium gave an overview of Germany’s ambitious Energiewende (“Energy Transition”). Markus Graebig form WindNODE introduced the showcase project aiming at an efficient integration of large-scale renewable energy capacity, power grids and energy users using digital networks in the new federal states. Afterwards, Heiko Staubitz (GTAI) concentrated on business opportunities in the German energy market and support offered by GTAI.
