GJETC Outreach

Roadmaps and concepts to decarbonise the (petro)chemical industry and the building stock

Japan and Germany both have set ambitious targets to become carbon neutral: Japan seeks to reach carbon neutrality by 2050, Germany even until 2045, following a ruling of the German Federal Constitutional Court in April 2021.

Against this background, the German-Japanese dialogue on the energy transition plays a particular significant role. Since its foundation in 2016, the German-Japanese Energy Transition Council (GJETC) has been working on strategic and systemic analyses to develop policy advice for new and long-term perspectives on the way to an ambitious energy transition.

The GJETC now starts its current working phase with a public outreach event on 26 October from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm, presenting insights into two recent studies:

  • Ylva Kloo, Junior Researcher in the Sectors and Technologies Research Unit at the Wuppertal Institute, and Ichiro Kutani from the Institute of Energy Economics, Japan will present a comparative analysis of roadmaps towards a climate neutral petrochemical production system.
  • Lotte Nawothnig, Junior Researcher in the Energy Policy Research Unit at the Wuppertal Institute, and Toshiyuki Kudo from the Institute of Energy Economics, Japan will present the GJETC study "Strategies, concepts and measures for decarbonising the building stock by 2045/50".

The online event is open to the public and will be held in English via Zoom, with simultaneous translation into Japanese. The programme and the possibility to register free of charge are available via the link below.
