Developing innovative solutions for energy and infrastructure has a firm place at EnBW: With our innovation management, we systematically develop new business models, found our own start-ups and invest in the ideas of young company founders. This has already resulted in 55 internal innovation projects and nine spin-offs. One example of a successful early start-up from the EnBW ideas factory is ChargeHere, which equips the parking spaces of companies and fleet providers with charging solutions for electric cars. Another example is Smight – a start-up that collects real-time data from the distribution grid, providing the basis for intelligent grid operation.
A holistic approach to district infrastructure
One important field of activity for a bright future involves sustainable districts. We are developing future-proof district infrastructure concepts and detailing how districts should function as a whole in the future. As a partner to cities, municipal councils and project developers, we always consider energy, mobility, ecology, housing and neighborhoods in the overall context and thus create environmentally, economically and socially sustainable living and working spaces.
We will continue to offer our customers future-oriented solutions and infrastructure for generations, with their roots in the research and development we are conducting today.
