The energy and infrastructure sectors are experiencing nothing less than a revolution as they face a number of urgent global challenges - challenges that demand innovation.
Germany is the European hub for electricity. With its central location in Europe, Germany is the hub for European electricity flows, directly exchanging electricity with nine neighboring countries. A major part of these cross-border flows does not constitute contractually agreed deliveries but transit quantities and loop flows.
The Energy & Infrastructure sectors in Germany face profound transformations.

Despite its status as one of the world's most advanced economies, slow or spotty internet connectivity remains a frustration in Germany. Even without a pandemic, the demands on digital infrastructure are expected to increase significantly in the coming years, driven by the advent of autonomous driving and the digitalization of the industrial sector, known as Industry 4.0. Digital infrastructure is increasingly becoming a prerequisite for innovative technological applications and new business models.
Early 2021, telecommunication companies Deutsche Telekom and Telefonica / O2 announced they would cooperate to close several hundred so-called "gray spots" in Germany. Gray spots are areas where only some internet companies provide internet, which limits internet access to their customers. The cooperation aims to complete 4G network coverage in Germany. Deutsche Telekom said it currently provides 5G access to 80% of Germany and it expects to extend that to 90% of the population by 2022
Governments across the globe understand the need to invest more in infrastructure, and they are looking to the private sector for funding and expertise. This has resulted in greater collaboration and a surge in public-private partnerships.
For years, Germany's federal government has adhered to spending policies guided by the "black zero," a commitment to a balanced budget and to not taking on new debt. While this strategy might be second nature to a society wary of taking out credit, in practice it has led to a significant lack of investment in infrastructure.
On the one hand, years of pinching pennies positioned the EU's largest economy to unleash massive waves of financial relief after the coronavirus pandemic hit. On the other hand, the country's digital infrastructure was ill-equipped to handle the sudden increase in demand as schools and workplaces shifted online. Particularly public services, long known for having lots of red tape and using behind-the-times technology, have come under fire for failing to adapt to the exceptional situation presented by the pandemic.
