The importance of the timber resources of the Black Forest has also increased sharply recently due to the increasing demand for wood pellets for heating.
The timber resources of the Black Forest provided the basis for other sectors of the economy that have now largely disappeared. The Black Forest supplied raw materials and energy for the manufacture of forest glass.
This is evidenced today by a number of glassblowing houses e. In the relatively inaccessible Black Forest valleys industrialization did not arrive until late in the day. In winter, many farmers made wooden cuckoo clocks to supplement their income. This developed in the 19th century into the precision engineering and watch industry, which boomed with the arrival of the railway in many of the Black Forest valleys.
The initial disadvantage of their remote location, which led to the development of precision-engineered wooden handicrafts, became a competitive advantage because of their access to raw materials: timber from the forest and metal from the mines.
As part of a structural support programme the Baden State Government founded the first clockmaking school in in Furtwangen to ensure that small artisans were given good training and thus better sales opportunities.
Due to the increasing demand for mechanical devices, large companies such as Junghans and Kienzle became established. In the 20th century, the production of consumer electronics was developed by companies such as SABA , Dual and Becker. In the s, the industry declined due to Far Eastern competition.
Nevertheless, the Black Forest remains a centre for the metalworking industry and is home to many high-tech companies. Since the start of industrialisation there have been numerous firms in Pforzheim that manufacture jewellery and work with precious metals and stones.
There is also a goldsmith 's school in Pforzheim. Due to the large amounts of precipitation and elevation changes the Black Forest has significant hydropower potential. This was used until the 19th century especially for operating numerous mills , including sawmills and hammer mills and was one of the local factors in the industrialization of some Black Forest valleys.
Since the 20th century, the Black Forest has seen the large-scale generation of electrical power using run-of-the-river power plants and pumped storage power stations. In , the Schluchsee reservoir, with its new dam, became the upper basin of a pumped-storage power plant. In the association of the Southern Black Forest's Schluchseewerk owned five power plants with 14 storage tanks.
In the 21st century, in the wake of the Renewable Energy Sources Act , numerous smaller run-of-the-river power stations were re-opened or newly constructed. View from the Belchen towards the Alps.
