Strategic Insights of the German-Japanese Energy Transition Council GJETC
Date: Friday, 16th February 2018, 10:00 – 12:00 hrs
Venue: Conference Center in the building of Bundespressekonferenz, Berlin
How can a long-term and risk-minimizing energy strategy which protects the climate and natural resources and at the same time creates jobs and drives the economy be realized? This is a challenge where international cooperation is more important than ever. As leading industrialized nations, Germany and Japan have a special responsibility to take the lead for implementing the “Paris Agreement” and to contribute as much as possible to a global deep decarbonization pathway.Since its foundation in May 2016, the German-Japanese Energy Transition Council (GJETC) has been working on strategic and systemic analysis to develop policy advice for new and long-term perspectives on the way to an ambitious energy transition.At the outreach event of GJETC in Berlin, the co-chairs and members of the GJETC will share the results and first recommendations of the Council and discuss it with a broader audience.
