They gained promotion to the German Bundesliga in 2000 and managed to play in the top division for three years. They were then relegation from the top flight and initially struggled to bounce back into the Bundesliga and were even at one point relegated to the third tier in German club football.

They returned to the first division at the end of the 2005-2006 season.

Energie Cottbus play their home matches at the Stadion der Freundschaft that has a capacity of 22,450. They bear the nicknames Energie and Die Lausitzer.
