Alongside partners Marco Voigt and Sven Krüger, Rosberg announced on Tuesday that Greentech Festival would be taking place from May 23-25 this year at Berlin’s Tempelhof Airport, where the city’s annual Formula E race will take place on the same weekend.

More than 50,000 visitors are anticipated to attend the three-day festival that will feature the world’s largest exhibition of green technologies, and a conference regarding sustainability. It is intended to cater for both industry specialists and the general public.

“With the Greentech Festival, we strive to bring the immense potential of green technologies to life and to inspire as many people as possible to accelerate positive change,” said Rosberg.

“It is not just the automotive industry that has high technical and performance-driven requirements these days. Many companies have long been following the important shift towards green technologies. But this development will only be implemented if all of us support this movement – that's why I fight for it."

The Berlin E-Prix will take place on Saturday May 24. Further details on the Greentech Festival can be found at www.greentechfestival.com.
