Regional information

Use of wind energy has an important meaning for Schleswig-Holstein. It is a home-produced, never-ending, non-fossil primary energy source and makes a growing contribution to climate protection. Wind energy use is especially concentrated on the west coast.

The business structure of the wind energy sector is concentrated especially on the Schleswig-Holstein west coast by a large number of small and middle-sized companies. The west coast and in particular the region of Husum are the strongest locations of the wind energy sector in Germany.

According to sector estimates, the accumulated investments in the use of wind energy in Schleswig-Holstein amount to more than 2.5 billion euros. By virtue of the operation of wind turbines, the companies earn an estimated 300 million Euros per year. To date, approx. 7,000 jobs have been created directly and indirectly in Schleswig-Holstein.

By now over 30% of the electricity consumption in the most northern federal land comes from wind energy. Wind is one of the renewable energy sources with the highest growth potential. The per capita proportion of electricity generated from wind energy is the highest in Schleswig-Holstein. With the extension of wind energy use a further increase of the installed capacity can be expected, especially in the offshore area.

Companies thrive and survive on the know-how of their employees. Conveying knowledge for the job is the responsibility and assignment of the Wirtschaftsakademie Schleswig-Holstein.

It was founded in 1967 and then re-established itself as the new Wirtschaftsakademie Schleswig-Holstein GmbH at the beginning of 2004 through a merger with the interplant educational centre founded in Elmshorn in 1974. As a private service company with the status of a public welfare institution, it provides advanced training courses for the Flensburg, Kiel and Lübeck Industrie- und Handelskammer (IHK - Chambers of Industry and Commerce).

Qualified and individual consultancy provided by competent staff as well as a selection of courses tailored to meet current occupational requirements are the bases for the successful training and advanced development programmes of the Wirtschaftsakademie Schleswig-Holstein. Experienced lecturers and instructors communicate their knowledge taken from the job for application to the job. Hence the Wirtschaftsakademie Schleswig-Holstein contributes new perspectives to working life and to the economic success of the companies in the land between the North and Baltic Seas.

The Wirtschaftsakademie Schleswig-Holstein offers diverse courses of study at 17 locations covering rural areas state-wide. Modern equipment, lecturers and instructors focussed on practical experience, and high quality standards ensure the participants’ learning success. Accommodation is available nearby at the colleges’ own guest houses e.g. in Kiel, Elmshorn, Lübeck or Husum.

By offering customised, flexible seminar concepts for the employed and those searching for jobs as well as in-company training, the Wirtschaftsakademie Schleswig-Holstein reacts to meet each need. In the technical commercial work shops in Elmshorn, Lübeck or Itzehoe theoretical knowledge is put into practice. Special vocations are focussed on in selected locations: in Husum hotel and restaurant management as well as renewable energies, Itzehoe stands for state-of-the-art micro technology and in Lübeck intensive studies in tourism are provided. The Wirtschaftsakademie is also committed to preparing young people throughout Schleswig-Holstein for their future careers. The Berufsakademie (College of Co-operative Education) and the Fachschule (Technical Colleges) in Kiel, Lübeck and Flensburg complete the program.
