Germany is widely seen as an ecological forerunner and pioneer in the application of renewable sources of energy. The Government has decided to fully overhaul the country’s energy supply system by moving away at the same time from nuclear energy and coal in favor of renewable energy sources – an effort termed Energiewende, or energy transition. The Energiewende is Germany’s path to a secure, environmentally friendly and economically successful future. The General Consulate of the Federal Republic of Germany in Vancouver, in collaboration with the University of Alberta, the Renewables Academy (RENAC) and the Federal Environmental Environment Agency (UBA) cordially invite you to a dedicated live lecture on the status and challenges of the energy transition in Germany.
Date: November 21, 2019 from 12.00 to 1.15 pm (Note: If you can’t make it to the University of Alberta, you can still watch the lecture via live stream! Registration for the live stream)
Venue: University of Alberta, Telus Centre, 111 Street 87 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6G 2R1
