Changing energy technology
Energy has been a fundamental part of Lusatia’s economy for 150 years – classic brown coal and renewable energy alike.
New technologies are being created
Companies with roots in the region, such as LEAG as an energy producer, service provider, maintenance provider and plant constructor in power plant technology and logistics and, for example, KSC, Actenium, Dr. Berg & Kießling and TSS are developing promising new business areas.
With BigBattery Lausitz , LEAG is developing battery storage on a whole new dimension. VESTAS produces turbine blades. UESA is a key supplier of electrical equipment for energy providers working in renewable energies. Daimler subsidiary Deutsche Accumotive GmbH & Co. KG manufactures batteries for hybrid and electric vehicles in Kamenz. PEWO Energietechnik GmbH in Elsterheide develops and produces heat distribution systems as system solutions for buildings and industry across Europe.
