3rd German-Danish Roundtable on Energy Transition
Between geopolitics, social-economic responsibility and new technologies
Climate change is at the heart of the global public debate and increasingly influences economic and energy policies. The EU and several European capitals have stepped up their climate targets. Denmark with its aim to save 70 percent of emissions by 2030 is ahead of everyone. But as the pressure to increase climate protection rises, the burden on citizens and companies must stay acceptable. This calls for a “just transition” on a national and global scale.
At the 3rd German-Danish Roundtable on Energy Transition experts will present and discuss
• how the energy transition will reshape geopoltics
• how Denmark and Germany plan to realise climate protection measurements (“Klimaschutzplan” – “klimalov”) and the challenges they are confronted with
• and which technologies can drive the energy transition.
