US German Energy Dialogue

Energy System Transformation: Exchange between New York State and Germany

Delegation trip to Germany (Berlin), June 19-23, 2017

Dialogue USA Klein

New York State has released an ambitious energy plan with a target of 40% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from 1990 levels and a 50% share of energy generation from renewable energy sources by 2050. These represent some of the most ambitious climate and renewable energy targets in the USA.

The Federal Government of Germany is also actively pursuing an energy transition path with an intended reduction of GHG by 80-95% and a share of renewable energy of 60% of gross final energy consumption by 2050. Germany is eager to find partners in the international energy transition, by exchanging ideas and by sharing its myriad experiences (and challenges) in energy policy and technology development gained over the past decades.

Aiming strengthen the transatlantic energy cooperation, encourage the exchange of experiences and best practices and build up energy transition policy expertise - the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy invited policy-makers, entrepreneurs and energy experts from New York State to participate in a delegation trip to Germany taking place from June 19 – 23, 2017.

The trip was organized by the Renewables Academy (RENAC) AG in Berlin and supported by its local partner, the German American Chamber of Commerce (GACC) in New York.
