The energy supply industry is particularly future-oriented and innovative in the District of Lörrach. The region is said to have the highest number of hydropower plants throughout Germany… surely due to the two rivers Rhine and Wiese which provide the territory for the production of renewable energies in the district.
The High Rhine between the Lake of Constance and Basel stretches over 150 kilometers and a gradient of 150 meters. No less than eleven barrages make use of this geographic conditions and produce green energy from hydropower. Besides, the river Wiese which descends from Feldberg down to Basel across the District of Lörrach, hereby surmounting a difference in altitude of 974 meters, provides excellent conditions for the energy production along its 34 hydropower stations.
Eight of the power stations along the Rhine and 10 small power stations at the Wiese are – either in 100% ownership or as shareholder - part of the Energiedienst-Gruppe, one of our SW+ PREMIUM Partners offering various job and career options in the energy sector.
The environmental technology is not a core business but rather integrated as a cross section technology in many other industries. Many companies hereby focus on energy saving, the prevention of emissions by means of downstream processes and production-integrated environmental technology.
Health care and social services
High value has always been placed on Health care and social welfare in the District of Lörrach and beyond. The health and care sector has become an ever more important issue against the background of demographic changes and ageing societies. This is in line with an increasing demand for nursing staff such as doctors, pharmacists, physiotherapists or midwifes.

Information and communication technology
Digitization has become a buzzword. The State of Baden-Württemberg has set itself the target of becoming a digital powerhouse. Whether „digital@BW“, „Cyber Valley“ or „digitization awards“ – the Government and its ministries have initiated various measures to achieve this objective.
The District of Lörrach has also long since arrived in the digital age: Many companies and innovative startups stand for a bustling IT-sector. In 2008, the IT-cluster „connect Dreiländereck“ has been established, together with the neighboring District of Waldshut-Tiengen and further partners, partly from Switzerland and France. With its almost 80 member firms from all industries, this network organizes events on the topic of “digital change” which allows companies to build up networks among themselves and with IT providers.
The „DIGIHUB Südbaden“ is another future-oriented project which was created in December 2018. Being linked to the Southwest economic region (WSW), this regional digitization center acts as a central point for SME companies in the region and provides support on all matters of digitization.

And last but not least there is a huge demand for young people with an affinity for numbers in the fields of controlling, budget planning or banking.
