The focus of Lusatia as a cross-border region of the federal states of Saxony and Brandenburg is still on energy, with the world's most modern lignite power plant park, which has reliable and affordable energy. In the course of this industry, a variety of industrial service providers have emerged, which are mainly active in plant construction. Energy-intensive industries have grown in Lusatia in the course of safe and affordable energy - BASF Schwarzheide supplies plastics and a wide range of products for the automotive industry, from steelworks to ironworks. Lusatia is considered a pioneer in industrial automation. This area is growing dynamically in cooperations of large companies such as Siemens with the technical colleges of the region and offers enormous future potential for industrial resettlements.
