Energiewende, European export hit or slow seller?
The German Energiewende is a radical shift and marks a clear direction towards an energy future without fossil and fissile sources. This bold political decision has drawn a lot of international attention mixing both, admiration and scepticism. Where does the implementation of the energy transition stand today? Is the political will unbowed and the community energy still a pillar of the transition? What hurdles do slow the process? And what opportunities or challenges does the German energy strategy bring to the European neighbours?
During 3 days, Stuttgart will serve as a learning place on the societal, cultural, economic and technological shifts that come with the energy transition in Europe.
Registration opens mid-February
