Dear readers,

An institutionalised expert exchange programme between Japan and Germany shall help transform the energy systems of both countries towards sustainability. Prof. Peter Hennicke, the former president of the Wuppertal Institute, has initiated a project to form a German-Japanese Energy Council, with the financial and technical backing of the Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt (DBU) and the Stiftung Mercator, and in collaboration with the Wuppertal Institute and ECOS Consult (Osnabrück). An earlier conducted Preparatory Study had found out how this council would have to set new impulses for energy and climate policies in both countries and thus bring forth the Energy Transition internationally. Find more information in a DBU-press release.
