German Energy Agency (dena) is Germany’s centre of expertise for energy efficiency, renewable energy sources and intelligent energy systems. As the "Agency for the Applied Energy Transition" we contribute to the attainment of energy and climate policy objectives.
For statistical purposes and to improve our service, this website uses technology provided by Matomo, an open-source web analytics software, which evaluates and then deletes data. No other use is made of the data, and the data are not passed on to third parties. Every time you visit a page on the website of the Bilateral Energy Partnerships of dena and every time you download a file, information about the activity is processed and stored in a temporary protocol file. Before it is stored, each dataset is rendered anonymous by altering the IP address.
The following information is stored for each page you view and each file you download:
- Technical details of the browser used
- Anonymous IP address
- Date and time
- Page opened/name of the file downloaded
- Quantity of data transferred
- Notification of whether viewing or download was successful
Temporary session cookies are used each time you view an individual page, to make navigation easier. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in your browser cache. Session cookies do not include any personal data and expire at the end of each session, or after the completion of a user survey, which is conducted as a rule every two years.
We do not use methods such as Java applets or ActiveX controls that make it possible to track your browsing behaviour.
Data is processed based on Art. 6 paragraph 1 f) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) with the legitimate interest of analysing usage to improve the company’s website.

For this purpose, a cookie is stored on the device, preventing user data from being collected when the user visits this website.

Please also note that, if you delete all cookies, the objection cookie will also be deleted and will need to be stored again.
