HUSUM Wind 2021

Renewable future made by Energieküste

Pioneering region for renewable energies: Shortly before its first birthday, the "Energieküste" will be presenting itself for the first time at HUSUM Wind. The umbrella brand of the future location Schleswig-Holstein North Sea coast unites highly innovative projects and creative actors with a doer mentality who are building a sustainable energy system unique in Germany. "Since its founding in 2020, the 'Energieküste' has grown into an important platform for harnessing synergies, pooling strengths and thus driving forward the expansion of renewable energies," says Kirsten Voss, project and marketing manager of the "Energieküste". From autonomous drones for the offshore sector to sustainable frozen food from Germany's only organic freezer, there are numerous exciting developments in this energy, business and research region. Interested visitors can find out how a completely climate-neutral future is being created here at the "Energieküste" at the stand of the State of Schleswig-Holstein (Hall 3, A19) from 14. to 17. September 2021.

Strong arguments and big plans  

Think big - for a rapid energy turnaround, the "Energieküste" wants to exploit the unique potential of the region even better. New companies, researchers, creative minds and skilled workers from all over Germany and Europe are to find a home in the future location. Whether green data centres, floating solar parks or ecological housing construction, the region rolls out the red carpet for decarbonisation. "Schleswig-Holstein's west coast offers targeted policy, research and funding for all players around renewable energies. Here you will find partnerships across all sectors, a wide-ranging, hands-on scene," says Annette Fröhlingsdorf, regional manager of the "Energieküste". "Don't talk, do" is the motto on the coast, as numerous projects prove.


Energieküste partners and projects

At HUSUM Wind, the "Energieküste" presents some of the trend-setting projects. For example, the eFarm in North Frisia, which produces hydrogen with electricity from citizen energy projects and makes it usable for fuel cell buses for local public transport. Also fascinating are the offshore hydrogen project AquaVentus on Helgoland and the real-world laboratory WESTKÜSTE100 as well as the world's leading developer of lithium-ion battery cells Customcells from Itzehoe and the Helgoland Test Centre for Maritime Technologies. Newcomers to the "Energieküste" include SunOyster GmbH with its clever solar products that also keep you cool, Inselwerk Föhr-Amrum GmbH with its sustainable island energy project and Breezer Aircraft GmbH & Co. KG, which is building an additional production facility and competence centre in Bredstedt. Alternative propulsion systems for Breezer Aircraft's aircraft will also be developed here, preferably with hydrogen, of course.


About the Energieküste

The Schleswig-Holstein North Sea coast is Germany's future location for renewable energies. Experts, researchers, creative minds and energy enthusiasts are shaping a highly innovative energy system from existing resources here. To bundle their know-how, the districts of North Frisia, Dithmarschen, Steinburg and Pinneberg founded the umbrella brand and platform "Energieküste". The aim of the districts, which have joined together to form the “Regionale Kooperation Westküste” and are regarded as incubators for innovations in the field of renewable energies, is to strengthen the existing economy, attract new companies and skilled workers and create a concise image for the business location. The "Energieküste" is financed with funds from the “Regionale Kooperation Westküste” budget, supported by the state programme Economy, and the four districts of the “Regionale Kooperation Westküste”.
