The former Cottbus-Drewitz airfield has been chosen for development as a commercial and industrial park. Green Areal Lausitz (GRAL) lays further important foundations for significantly reducing the carbon footprint of the GRAL industrial site and for launching a beacon project for <b>forward-looking entrepreneurial initiatives</b> in Lusatia.
GRAL industrial and commercial park is located on the former Drewitz airfield north of the Jänschwalde opencast lignite mine in the administrative district of Peitz and the Spree-Neisse region of Brandenburg. The Jänschwalde-Ost railway station is within walking distance, approximately 800 metres south of the industrial park.
The Roggosen junction on the A15 motorway is at a distance of approximately 20 kilometres via the upgraded B97.
The industrial and commercial park is intended to attract companies that see environmentally friendly and carbon-neutral production as the way ahead and wish to contribute in their own way to a sustainable future.
To this end, an ecologically sustainable energy concept is being developed in collaboration with the Institute for Climate Protection, Energy and Mobility (Institut für Klimaschutz, Energie und Mobilität e.V. – IKEM), the Reiner Lemoine Institute (RLI) and BBH Consulting AG (BBHC).
To ensure that this professed aim is systematically implemented, a goods yard of approximately 800 metres in length is planned for the transportation of raw materials and finished products by rail. This will complement the conceptual production chain, providing carbon-neutral logistics for goods and freight traffic that relies primarily on renewable energy (i.e. electricity).
Talks are already taking place with Deutsche Bahn and private operators. Enertrag AG, as the energy supplier, and GeWAP/LWG for the water and wastewater supply have already been signed up as powerful and innovative infrastructure partners.
This energy concept is intended to lay the foundations for an efficient and sustainable world. Many jobs will be created, thereby giving a boost to the region as it shapes up for the energy transition.
As this is a region undergoing structural change, companies relocating here can benefit from some of the most generous subsidies in Germany.
Construction work on the new communicative hub in Potsdam will commence in 2023. The site is the Reichsbahn-Ausbesserungswerk (RAW), the former railway repair works of the GDR. The project is a key component of the Future Made in Potsdam initiative..
