Every year, more than 20 inquiries from foreign delegations reach the EnergyAgency.NRW. The aim of these technical and political groups is to get to know the processes in industrial North Rhine-Westphalia with regard to implementation of the energy transition and the aims of climate protection, and to adopt this at home where appropriate. As a pioneer in the area of energy change and climate protection, North Rhine-Westphalia can suggest numerous best practice projects. The EnergyAgency.NRW is the first port of call to present the political and economic framework in the state. It can facilitate contacts to model projects such as climate protection communities, energy efficient companies and other best practice projects all round the area of energy transition.
