Progressive energy policy - from the region to Europe

Report

Yet this Europe-wide long-term energy and climate debate starting this autumn offers a number of important opportunities for countries facing vast energy challenges (e.g. overwhelming reliance on coal and/or nuclear). The discussion process can result in better long-term and cross-border climate and energy policy planning in Europe.

Energy Transition

Our Foundation campaigns for energy supply that would ensure well-being of people and the environment, as well as safety and sustainability. The German energy transition, “Energiewende”, proves that a switch to renewables is attainable, stimulates employment and raises civic activism. The development of the democratic power industry might give an answer to the challenges resulting from the evolution to a low-carbon economy, the permanent reduction of carbon dioxide emissions and safe power supply.
