11/10/2014

A delegation from the German state of Schleswig-Holstein visited RGIT on November 10th. The group included representatives of the regional Departments of Commerce and Energy, the Chamber of Commerce Flensburg, as well as regional companies from the renewable energy sector. The goal of the event was to create contacts and to inform about renewables in the US. A presentation from RGIT Deputy Director Kevin Heidenreich followed explanations from Germany Trade and Invest (GTAI) trade expert Martin Wiekert about the current energy boom due to the extraction of shale gas and the status quo of renewable energy. Afterwards, the guests raised questions about the position of the US government concerning alternative energies, possible ways of marketing the investment location Schleswig-Holstein, and the steps for starting up a business in the US.
