About us

Considering the energy transition and the associated structural change, the energy region of Lusatia, like other German coal districts, is facing major challenges. Given the changing regional and global value chains, it is important to secure the know-how accumulated over decades, to support alternative marketing opportunities for existing technologies and to promote innovation in the energy industry.

The MinGenTec network (Mining & Generation Technology – Made in Germany), funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy as part of the federal model project 'Unternehmen Revier' (Project Coal District), specifically targets companies and scientific institutions in the competence field of mining and energy industry. As an initiative of the Cottbus Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK Cottbus), the Brandenburg Economic Development Corporation (Wirtschaftsförderung Land Brandenburg GmbH, WFBB), the Dresden Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK Dresden) and the Saxony Economic Development Corporation (Wirtschaftsförderung Sachsen GmbH, WFS), we provide you with cross-border support in business sector development.

Find out about our network and our services in the areas of networking, internationalisation, innovation, and qualification as well as PR and marketing.
