International Symposium
"Energiewende made in Germany -Economic Value and Energy Security"

The share of renewable energy in German electricity consumption reached almost 30% in 2014. Germany continues to expand renewable energy in order to meet its target of covering 40 to 45 per cent of its electricity from renewable sources by 2025. Some reports broadcasted in Japan regarding the German energy policy are based on misunderstandings such as the following examples; “Due to the expansion of renewable energy, the electricity price in Germany has doubled” “Germany can push to promote renewable energy since the German transmission network is connected to neighboring countries. Japan is not interconnected with other countries, so it is not possible to do the same. ”
Dr. Hermann Falk, the Executive Director of the German Renewable Energy Federation (BEE), will talk about the “Energiewende” in Germany.
