Objectives and Strategy

The Berlin Energy Agency was founded in 1992 as a private limited company on the initiative of the Berlin senate with the aim to identify energy saving potentials and to facilitate the implementation of renewable energy sources. Equal partners of the Berlin Energy Agency are Deutsche Ausgleichsbank (public law corporation), Bewag plc. (utility) and the State of Berlin.
Innovative projects that guarantee the reduction of energy costs on the one hand and reduction of CO2-emissions on the other hand have so far been developed and realised for industrial plants, small and medium-sized companies, hospitals, housing companies as well as for public and non-commercial institutions.
The Berlin Energy Agency acts on local and regional level as well as internationally as a project co-ordinator in the framework of various EU-supported projects.
