Zoom: Passwort: SSE_79110

The presentation will firstly show where Germany stands in terms of implementing the goals of the energy transition and, in particular, what additional measures are necessary in order to still be able to achieve the climate protection targets of the country. In addition to the significantly accelerated expansion of renewable energies and the ramp-up of a hydrogen economy, a massive increase in energy and resource efficiency is particulary necessary. The resulting massive restructuring of the energy system is associated with a multitude of challenges and can be understood as a multi-dimensional implementation task. In addition to technical and political challenges, there are above all challenges in relation to the epansion of infrastructure, the adaption of the energy market design, the avoidance of problem shifting due to the overuse of scarce raw materials and various social challenges to be considered.

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Manfred Fischedick has been President and Chief Scientific Manager of the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy since January 2020. In November 2008, he was also appointed Professor of the Faculty of Economics - Schumpeter School of Business and Economics at the University of Wuppertal. Using 25 years of experience in energy system analysis, he advises international institutions, the European Union, the German Federal Government and the Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia as well as companies from a variety of industries. He is a member of several scientific advisory boards, among others lead author and coordinating lead author of the fifth and sixth Assessment Reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate change (IPCC) and lectures on transformation and innovation research at various universities.
