Numerous new options are emerging as part of the digitalization process. This is not just about optimizing individual elements, but also about making complex infrastructures at the system level more efficient. The German capital region is home to extensive expertise and experience thanks to its ambitious climate protection goals. Employing about 26,000 people and generating revenues of more than € 3.3 billion a year, technologies related to energy efficiency represent an important aspect of the regionʼs energy and environmental sector. Efficiency technologies are being developed and tested in a variety of projects here, including lighting technology, visualizing energy consumption, lightweight construction, air-conditioning technology, technologies for the efficient distribution and storage of heat and cold as well as building services engineering. The energyefficient buildings segment accounts for about two-thirds of those working in this sector and about 57% of the revenues. As a growing city, Berlin offers ideal opportunities to develop and apply the latest technologies, energy services, and new busi- Tobias Viernickel CEO Geo-En Energy Technologies »With Geo-Enʼs geo-hybrid technology, we are already reaching the climate protection targets for tomorrow. For me, it is clear that without integral energy solutions, we will not be able to save our climate. Renewable energies are the most important key.« »THB is involved in a wide range of research and teaching projects related to creating energy efficient technical systems following an interdisciplinary approach. Our research focuses on energy optimization of production processes, heat recovery, heat storage, energy-efficient lighting systems, and solar thermal energy for process heat.« Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Katharina Löwe Vice Dean, Department of Engineering Energy and Environmental Engineering Brandenburg University of Applied Sciences ness models, especially in the building sector. Numerous projects across the city are combining a wide range of different approaches. The “Märkische Scholle” cooperative residential area in Lichterfelde is home to about 1,000 apartments that have been comprehensively modernized by means of recompaction, energy generation, heat recovery, geothermal storage and a “dynamic energy manager”, all without having to raise rents. The project “Nechlin – A village full of energy” in the Uckermark is a showcase of an economically successful integration of renewable energies, including an innovative heat supply, photovoltaic cells, e-mobility, and renovations to create energy-efficient buildings. The 13.6 acre EUREF campus is another representative symbol of the energy transition in Germany and serves as a home base for companies working in the fields of energy, sustainability, and mobility. Energy obtained from the sun and wind is combined with bio and natural gas cogeneration units and power-

The German governmentʼs CO 2 emissions targets for 2050 were already met here in 2014. In Strausberg, Hermann Römmler Kunststofftechnik is generating electricity and cooling through cogeneration and uses it both to power its production processes and to control its building climates. The results: 40% energy savings and 60% less CO 2 emissions. Coolar, a spin-off from the TU Berlin, has developed a refrigerator that runs on lowtemperature heat from solar thermal energy without electricity or harmful refrigerants. A key application for this technology will be cooling medicines and vaccines in developing countries with limited electricity supplies. Under the motto “Making ice cream from the sun”, ice cream manufacturer Florida Eis has adopted climate-neutral production and logistics systems with innovative refrigeration, insulation, and adsorption technologies. The refrigerated delivery vehicles are equipped with a fixed eutectic plate cooling system which is charged overnight. »The capital region offers my team and me an excellent environment for research in the area of sustainable heating and cooling, for example, developing cooling plants and heat transformers powered by process waste heat.« Prof. Dr.-Ing. Felix Ziegler Head of the Department of Mechanical and Systems Engineering TU-Berlin, Institute for Energy Technology »With its numerous competencies in science and business, the Berlin Brandenburg Energy Technologies Cluster offers an ideal environment for developing and advancing new technologies in the area of energyefficient building systems.« Antje Vargas CEO GeoClimaDesign AG, Fürstenwalde Bäckerei Röhrig in Trebbin is setting new standards for the trade. The operation was able to reduce its CO 2 emissions by 57%, for which it was awarded the 2017 Brandenburg Energy Efficiency Award. The bakery has systematically implemented a series of efficiency measures, such as solar thermal systems, CHP, LED lighting, battery storage, and heat generation with natural gas via photovoltaics. As the capital of digital transformation, Berlin is also making important contributions to the development of energy-saving IT solutions. The Photonics Enhanced Data Centers (SAVE) project at the Berlin Center for Digital Transformation of the Fraunhofer Society, for example, is working on ways to integrate photonic elements into data centers in order to reduce their enormous energy consumption levels significantly. Sicoya received the 2017 “Start Up Energy Transition Award” for the development of low-cost, energy-efficient optical transceiver chips for server connections.
