Individual company presentation

What kind of future world do we want to live in? How can we get climate change under control?

At ZSW, scientists and engineers, visionaries and groundbreakers are working to shape a "next". They develop innovative solutions for private enterprises, policymakers and society. We want to make sure that the transformation to climate neutrality will be a success for everyone. For more than 30 years, we have been doing research and development for a sustainable energy system.

Discover our research topics, technologies and competencies at our booth.

The ZSW was established in 1988 by the German state of Baden-Württemberg, together with universities, research institutions, and commercial firms. It is a non-profit foundation under the civil code. Solar energy and hydrogen technologies are currently maturing on an industrial scale and will be major components in the sustainable energy supply of the 21st century.
