NRW.Global Business, Special Project "Rheinisches Revier"


Europe's largest lignite mining region in North Rhine-Westphalia, the so-called "Rheinische Revier", is facing a profound change due to the coal phase-out in 2030. This also offers the opportunity to become a model region for energy supply and resource security. Together with partners, the state-owned foreign trade promotion company NRW.Global Business is supporting the region on its way to becoming Europe's first climate-neutral industrial region. The aim is to position the Rheinisches Revier worldwide as an innovative and competitive economic region and to attract international companies to the region. Digital Solutions, Green Energy Technologies, New Mobility and Life Science are the focus of activities.
