The city district with an area of approximately 5.5 hectares is a symbol of the shift to renewable energy in Germany and is home to companies from the sectors of energy, sustainability and mobility. Since the start of site development in 2008, national and international companies and research facilities have settled at EUREF-Campus. Ecologically and economically sustainable solutions make the office and knowledge campus – which was already meeting the climate targets set by the Federal Government for 2045 back in 2014 – a centre for innovative future projects which is unique Europe-wide. In a close exchange and in numerous partnerships, global players and start-ups as well as research and teaching facilities develop intelligent solutions for the city of the future.
EUREF-Campus is a reference site for the smart city strategy of the State of Berlin. With a climate-neutral energy supply, an intelligent energy grid, energy-efficient buildings, a testing platform for electric mobility and numerous research projects, the Campus proves that the shift to renewable energy is doable and financially feasible.
The city district continues to further expand its function as a forum and information hub by means of events on the subjects of environmental protection and sustainability, guided Campus tours and company visits as well as informative projects such as the Energiewerkstatt.
