"Zoom In! – Japanese-German Energy Transition Talks" is a series jointly organised by the Japanese-German Energy Partnership Team and the German-Japanese Energy Transition Council (GJETC). It focuses on current developments regarding the energy transition in both countries. Each session zooms in on a specific topic and offers decision-makers from policy, industry and research a platform for in-depth information and discussion on the current status, development and potential for different energy transition policies and technologies in Germany and Japan.
In the second session on 21 September 2023, from 10 to 11 am CEST (5 to 6 pm JST), experts discuss the nexus of circular economy, resource efficiency and climate protection, the different approaches and lessons learnt so far. As this is a broad topic, this conversation will zoom in on the scenario-based need and usefulness of policy integration between circular economy and climate protection to achieve national climate change mitigation goals. The experts will further elaborate on the benefits of this approach, current developments and open questions in the respective countries.
GJETC has been actively involved in the energy transition of both countries for more than six years. In its fourth project phase, the German-Japanese Cooperation Council is developing recommendations and studies on the implementation and further development of the energy transition, strengthening cooperation between Germany and Japan and promoting an open dialogue on controversial issues.
