About Heraeus Renewable Energies

From vision to business: Your partner for breakthrough technologies.

The Architects of Sustainable Growth

Global demand for energy is on the rise – and expected to grow by more than 60% until 2050. The global Paris Climate Conference COP21 in 2015 and the resulting Paris Agreement, ratified only eleven months later, showed that renewable energies play a key role to meet the increased energy demand in a sustainable and eco-friendly way.

Change is only sustainable if we make it affordable. Renewable energy is already competitive today and will become the most cost efficient supply in the future.

Our portfolio ranges from components to coordinated material systems which are used in a wide variety of industries, including the photovoltaic, steel, electronics, chemical, automotive and telecommunications industries. With product solutions and R&D activities throughout the whole renewable value chain, Heraeus targets to significantly reduce system cost by providing and enabling more efficient technologies.
