Berlin gives the green light

The cleantech industry with its six main markets sustainable mobility, energy efficiency, green energy production and storage, sustainable water management, resource and material efficiency, and circular economy is encountering ideal conditions for growth and innovation:

  • The city abounds with available commercial properties and industrial areas found near the centre of the city.
  • Berlin’s accessibility underlines its attractiveness as a place to do business.
  • Another component of Berlin’s economic success is the unique research and development landscape with four universities, seventy colleges and countless research institutions.
  • On top of that, Berlin is known for its high quality of life and affordable living expenses making it an ideal place to live for skilled workers and executives alike.
  • A large network of businesses and representatives from industry, government, and unions are working together to stimulate further industrial growth in Germany’s capital.


Clean and future-proof industries are a major factor driving Berlin’s economy. With a program dubbed “Industriestadt Berlin 2010–2020” (The Industrial City of Berlin 2010–2020), the city has committed itself to becoming a preferred location for industrial enterprises and cutting-edge technologies.

In addition, Berlin is continuously expanding its position as a “smart city”. With that said, Berlin is a place for science, research, development, implementation, and production like no other in Europe.
