After a successful first phase the structure of the German-Japanese Energy Transition Council (GJETC) was adjusted to reflect the new working style towards more focalized topics of mutual interest, derived from the study program and discussions within the first phase as well as ensuring a more pluralistic structure while preserving the core of the Council to maintain the mutual trustworthy relationship that has developed during the 1st and 2nd phase.
Prof. Dr. Peter Hennicke, former president of the Wuppertal Institute and co-initiator of the German-Japanese Energy Transition Council, is functioning as co-chair in cooperation with his Japanese colleague Prof. Masakazu Toyoda, Chairman and CEO of the Institute of Energy Economics Japan (IEEJ).
On the German side, the reputed Wuppertal Institute steers the Council’s work as the scientific secretariat. In Japan this role is fulfilled by the renowned Institute of Energy Economics Japan (IEEJ). ECOS Consult is responsible for the organizational secretariat and contributes with its long-standing competence in Japanese-German projects.
