Hello all

The following document (in German) is intended to offer Energiewende policy guidance to the incoming German federal government (while noting that coalition talks are still in progress) plus coverage in Die Zeit newspaper:

Tom Brown and Berit Erlach contributed to the study.  Overarching messages include:

  • acknowledge complexity
  • treat problem as integrated and highly cross-sectoral, invoking mobility, the built environment, workplace practices, industry, and so on
  • level with the public regarding scale and rate of change

Not so common for these themes to be highlighted as primary in a policy context.

Also worth observing that German industry is, by and large, completely committed to rapid decarbonization these days.  Also quite a paradigm shift.

with best wishes, Robbie
