The Technology Centre Energy-Campus Hamburg

In the last few years, renewable energy has developed into an important element in economic policy with great momentum. The energy transition and the development of renewable energy offer huge economic potential that is to be harnessed even better in future with HAW Hamburg's new technology centre "Energy-Campus". The technology centre is to be built walking distance from the Faculty of Life Sciences in Hamburg-Bergedorf. A wind laboratory and a smart grid laboratory are planned. Moreover, a wind farm is to be constructed in direct proximity for research purposes.

 "With the Energy-Campus, we want to create a 'Silicon Valley of 
Renewable Energy' in Hamburg"

The flagship project is aimed at helping the metropolitan region of Hamburg to remain internationally competitive and to successfully negotiate the turn to sustainable forms of energy. The EUR 7.3 million project is receiving EUR 3.8 million of support from the Senate of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. The rest of the funding of approximately EUR 3.5 million comes from resources from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The project technology centre "Energy-Campus" was officially presented at Hamburg City Hall in August 2012 in presence of Frank Horch, Science Senator of the City of Hamburg. Construction work was commenced in November 2013 and in February 2014 the foundation stone was laid by the First Mayor of Hamburg, Olaf Scholz, and HAW Hamburg's former president, Prof. Dr. Michael Stawicki. In February 2015 the research center was inaugurate. Besides Olaf Scholz also the Senator of Science and Reasearch (BWF), Dr. Dorothee Stapelfeld, the Senator of Economy, Transport and Innovation (BWVI), Frank Horch, HAW Hamburg's president Prof. Dr. Jacqueline Otten as well as further important representatives of science, economy and politics were present.
