Lecture details:
The Global Energy Transformation – a Challenge for Science, Technology and New Politics
We know that renewable, climate-neutral energy is vital
for our survival. Solar energy is available in virtually
limitless quantity, and photovoltaic cell production is
increasingly cost-competitive. However, the energy
system lags behind. Effective technologies in smart
energy distribution, renewable-source transport and
storage are needed, demanding political and social
innovation. Only strong public support can lead us
towards a sustainable global energy system. California
and Germany might be the two regions ready to blaze
this trail.
