Abstract – This overview of superconductor industry in Germany is based on an introductory talk presented at the First German Symposium on High-temperature Superconductivity for Energy Technology (ZIEHL), held in Bonn on February 20 and 21, 2008.  Developed in Germany electric grid subsystems using high-temperature superconductors (HTS), and energy-intensive industrial products involving HTS are used as examples.  The need for large-scale investment is accentuated as paramount for the future of this industry.

Accepted in final form April 21, 2008.  Reference No. RN6; Category 5, 6, 11.
