Düsseldorf – 15 months before the opening of the first construction phase, the EUREF community is getting bigger and bigger. Four well-known new tenants have joined in the last few weeks, who will be working from the future location for the energy and mobility transition from October 2024.
Trading Hub Europe (THE) is relocating from Ratingen to the EUREF campus in Düsseldorf. With just over 100 employees in Berlin and the Rhineland, Trading Hub Europe has become known for filling the gas storage facilities on behalf of the federal government and thus getting Germany through the winter. THE is the market area manager for the German gas market and a key player in ensuring security of supply as part of its new tasks. Trading Hub Managing Director Torsten Frank: “It was important for us to find suitable office space with good transport connections in the Düsseldorf area. We succeeded in doing this perfectly with the EUREF-Campus. We were particularly impressed by the exceptionally good rail connections, the modern office concept, the sustainable energy supply and the campus concept.
DSK (Deutsche Stadt- und Grundstücksentwicklungsgesellschaft) will also become a tenant of the EUREF-Campus Düsseldorf. It is relocating its Düsseldorf office with around 20 employees to the EUREF-Campus. DSK GmbH is one of Germany’s market leaders in the field of urban development and deals with sustainable development and climate protection concepts as well as energy-efficient urban redevelopment and holistic urban renewal on a daily basis.
Convex Energy from Berlin is opening a new company headquarters in the Rhineland. Convex is a young and ambitious company that specialises in trading renewable energies in the most important European electricity and gas markets. Convex will also become a partner of the EUREF Talent Campus, where talent for the future will be trained with the help of four universities.
Hamburg-based energy start-up 1KOMMA5°, a so-called “unicorn” that is now worth over one billion US dollars, is planning a showroom. 1KOMMA5° has integrated Erkrath-based EnergieExpert Rhein-Ruhr GmbH into its corporate network and wants to offer holistic solutions for climate-neutral energy from the EUREF-Campus. Markus Beinhauer from EnergieExpert: “The energy transition needs us all! The EUREF-Campus brings together the brightest minds in science and technology, making it the ideal place to educate people about carbon-neutral living, heating and mobility.” Philipp Schröder, one of the founders: “1KOMMA5° combines the best of technology and craftsmanship to make every building in Europe CO2-neutral. With the EUREF-Campus Düsseldorf, we have found an innovative and sustainable location for our Düsseldorf showroom, where customers and interested parties from the Düsseldorf region can learn all about the energy transition in buildings.
Here they can experience our vision up close: a world in which we will live free of charge from wind and sun in the future.”
