WISE Lecture Series - The Impact of "Energiewende" on Renewable Energy in Germany
The term ‘Energiewende’ refers to the current German effort to transition to renewable energy sources. To combat the long tradition of fossil fuel energy generation the German government established “The Renewable Energy Act” in 2000 and now offers incentives for renewable energy.
Dr. Pehlken will discuss the impact of these incentives with regards to best practice, the need for regulation and unexpected outcomes.
All are welcome, refreshments to follow. This is a free event.
