Regional Cooperation

 The Power Hub

Since 2005, the economic development at the Weser estuary has been very positive and dynamic. The region has successfully been positioned as a competence centre for growth and future industries. In turn, this development is exerting a positive long-term influence on the demand for commercial sites and qualified staff.

The rising need in these sectors have prompted the members of Regionalforum Bremerhaven to increase the joint marketing of the Lower Weser region as a location with excellent prospects. To this purpose, the workgroup "Regional Cooperation" was formed within Regionalforum.

Offshore Wind Region

The “Regional Cooperation” workgroup first addressed the marketing of offshore wind energy as a pilot project, because this topic is well suited as a unique selling proposition in the region.

In close collaboration, the umbrella brandname “The Power Hub” was developed. Under this new family brand, the City of Bremerhaven, the surrounding municipalities of Lower Saxony, the District of Cuxhaven, the City of Cuxhaven, the City of Nordenham and the District of Wesermarsch were presented together for the first time at the “Wind” fair in Hanover early in 2011. The joint appearance at the trade fair reflects the heightened level of cooperation.

As the next step, a brochure of the same name was produced. This publication presented the economic strengths and structures of the region in respect of the offshore wind energy industry.

Pool of commercial sites

The successful regional collaboration is being continued by the workgroup. At the present time, the workgroup is developing a concept for the joint marketing of commercial areas of the municipalities that are members of Regionalforum Bremerhaven. The aim is market commercial sites and buildings in a pool of commercial sites. For this, the umbrella brandname “The Power Hub” will be developed further.

Moreover, the strengths of the region are to be presented on a joint internet platform.
