The German Energiewende

Transforming Germany’s energy system

Germany has decided to switch its entire energy supply to renewables and to become increasingly energy efficient. In this way, Germany is playing a major role in climate protection. The Energiewende is our answer to the question of how we can make the energy supply secure, affordable and sustainable. This unique opportunity for Germany as a location for business and investment will open up new business opportunities, foster innovation, create jobs, boost growth and make us less dependent on oil and gas imports. The German Government is very often asked about the Energiewende. At the same time, many people are surprised by the dimensions of the project and by how many aspects it involves. By transforming its energy system, Germany is taking its responsibility for the planet and its inhabitants seriously. These wide-ranging tasks and challenges are what we want to present on this website and in our travelling exhibition. We invite you to join us as we shift to green energy.
