Network International Relations and Foreign Trade
Acting since 1990 for the state government of North-Rhine Westphalia, EnergieAgentur.NRW (EnergyAgency.NRW) makes a significant contribution to the development and implementation of energy related and climate protection objectives. In consultancy and executive functions, we work very closely with the ministries responsible for climate protection, science and energy. At the same time, we ensure an increased flow of information between politics, research and science in order to guarantee a smooth innovation process, and to identify market potential in the area of renewable energies and energy efficiency. Over many years, the International Relations Division of the EnergyAgency.NRW has fostered good relationships with institutions and authorities in the energy and environmental area worldwide.
Delegation inquiries – mediation in Best Practice projects
Over 20 inquiries from foreign delegations arrive at the EnergyAgency.NRW every year. The aim of these technical or 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, and can facilitate contacts to model projects such as energy efficient companies, climate protection communities, and other best practice projects and technologies around the area of energy transition.
Pioneers in new markets
Another important element of the work of EnergyAgency.NRW in the foreign trade area is the internationalisation of the North Rhine-Westphalia based renewable energy industry. At events home and abroad, exchanges, business trips and joint stands at international trade shows, we support the NRW industry and SMEs as they enter new markets, and give companies a platform to present their products and services.
