24th Brandenburg Energy Day

Thank you to all participants and exhibitors at the Brandenburg Energy Day on May 23, 2024, who contributed to the success of this great industry event!

Heat transition in Brandenburg - opportunities and solutions
It was another great industry meeting at the BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg, with a morning focused on the heat transition, a lively panel discussion and three exciting, thematically diverse forums in the afternoon. There was also plenty of opportunity to exchange ideas with the almost 500 participating experts and anyone interested in energy topics, especially at the stands in the high-quality trade exhibition.

After the Energy Day is before the Energy Day!
The Brandenburg Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labor and Energy and the co-organizers - the BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg, the Brandenburg Chambers of Industry and Commerce and the Energy Technology Cluster of the WFBB - are looking forward to the 25th Brandenburg Energy Day.

We will publish the date and the choice of topics for 2025 here as soon as possible.
We look forward to welcoming you again!
