With approximately 500 companies and more than 50,000 employees, Nuremberg and its surrounding area is considered one of Europe’s top regions in the energy sector. The region’s economic potential is unique within Europe, particularly due to the combination of energy technology and power electronics achieved here.
Significant research potential has been identified at the region’s Universities of Applied Science and the Friedrich-Alexander-University of Erlangen/Nuremberg. University departments and research institutes maintain multifarious relationships with industry and scientific establishments both at home and abroad. This internationally significant potential is to be interlinked even closer and the resulting synergies are to be used to improve the competitiveness of the region’s energy companies. Established in March 2001, the EnergieRegion Nürnberg e.V. has become the centre of this complex network carefully co-ordinating all its activities.
Within Europe, the region boasts an unique set of energy-related core competencies: energy technology/power electronics/automation/energy and building.
The competence network has been developed around these four focal fields on the basis of the existing potentials. All four areas exert a complementary influence on each other and tend towards the integration of additional areas of expertise into the competence network of the EnergieRegion Nürnberg e.V.
The networks activity centers on:
