The BSW represents the interests of some 1000 companies from the solar energy industry. It wants to make solar power more cost-effective. It promotes the Energiewende and wants investment security for potential solar power producers.
The Federal Association of Solar Mobility has been campaigning for environmentally friendly transport systems and the use of solar energy on land, in the water and in the air for 25 years. It transports findings from electromobile practice to political committees and offers its members a basis for exchanging their experiences. The BSM is an important organization of German civil society. Its members develop sustainable mobility concepts that are communicated to political bodies. With a view beyond individual transport to systemic mobility, the BSM continues to represent positions with which Germany can face the challenges of the future.
The German Society for Solar Energy e.V. (DGS) was founded in Munich in 1975. The approximately 2,800 individual members and member companies are organized regionally in 36 sections and 6 state associations. The DGS sees itself as an intermediary between scientists, engineers, architects, the building trade, crafts, industry, authorities and parliaments. Project work, public relations and e.g. the development of a quality mark for solar systems help.
The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is one of the world's pioneers in the research and development of systems and components for concentrating solar technologies. The DLR Institute for Solar Research, in which the solar research activities of the DLR are bundled, sees itself as a bridge builder from basic research to large-scale implementation and application in industry.
