Seminar: Energiewende Continued – Tackling the Challenge of Coal

Would you like to know more about one of Europe's biggest energy markets and about the future of German energy policy? On behalf of the Swedish Energy Agency's Global Energy Forum and the World Energy Council Sweden, we invite you to an inspiring breakfast seminar.

As the EU’s main industrial engine and given its geographical location in the centre of Europe’s energy markets, Germany’s energy policy is important also from a Swedish perspective. After the 2017 elections in Germany, a weakened version of the previous grand coalition between conservatives and social democrats will take office in March. The speakers at this seminar will share their views on the major challenges that Germany’s upcoming government will have to face towards 2030 and what strategies should be followed to further boost energy efficiency and renewable energy.
