OSNABRÜCK, Germany, May 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
DBU-backed project ready for launch - scientific exchange and mutual learning
Despite differences in policies on energy and its supply, Japan and Germany are confronted by a similar challenge: to restructure their energy systems in such a way that they are low-risk, reliable, resource-efficient and climate-neutral in the long term. At the same time, both countries must remain internationally competitive on the basis of this ecological modernisation. A planned institutionalised exchange between experts from both countries will aim to facilitate better strategies for meeting this challenge in future. Prof. Peter Hennicke, the former president of the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy, has initiated a project to form a German-Japanese Energy Council, with the financial and technical backing of the Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt (DBU) and the Stiftung Mercator, and in collaboration with the Wuppertal Institute and ECOS Consult (Osnabrück).
