German Energy Solutions Initiative

The transfer of energy expertise, the promotion of foreign trade and the facilitation of international development cooperation are part of the German Energy Solutions Initiative, which is coordinated and financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.


The promotion of renewable energies and energy efficiency in Germany has resulted in the establishment of an industry, which offers some of the world’s leading technologies.

This industry encompasses several thousand small and medium-sized enterprises specialized in the development, design and production of renewable energy technologies, energy efficiency solutions, grids and storage. This is the basis for smart energy solutions.

Networking & Business Opportunities

We organize trade missions and delegations visits for business representatives between Germany and the Midwest region.

Trade missions to the Midwest include a one-day seminar showcasing the expertise and the latest technologies related to renewable energy and energy efficiency from Germany. In addition to that, we organize customized 1-on-1 meetings for our delegation participants in order to discuss synergies and potential partnerships with US companies.

“Our expectations for the business delegation trip “Energy Efficiency in Industry” were more than exceeded. Through the presentation training we received, we were able to optimize our presentation and introduction of our company and products. In addition, the target market analysis we received provided us with both relevant information regarding energy consumption and a good assessment of the market situation throughout the US. The on-site support from GACC Midwest, as well as their assistance at our meetings with customers, helped make our trip a success.”
