Promoting science and research for climate friendly technologies

Promoting science and research for climate friendly technologies

Summary

A focus point of the project of the German Climate Technology Initiative (DKTI I) is promoting the area of science and research for climate friendly technologies. Local competencies are developed by supporting diverse activities, like the establishment of a Green Energy Park as a testing platform for solar energy systems and a pilot research project on electric mobility. Given that actors from the private sector and science have been involved, not only strong knowledge base but also network building between these actors has been achieved. In general, supporting national research activities can be replicated in other countries, leading to greenhouse gas reductions in the long term.
