01: 2015: The End of Energy Revolution

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

When talking about “alternative energy”, we always think about the future; the more we talk , the longer it will take to be put into practice. From a technological point of view, however, we are already in the thick of it: industrial and energy producing corporations are nearing their maximum efficiency levels. Only by linking individual disciplines and by recognising that global conditions differ greatly can regional or national laws on energy and climate policy be usefully and specifically assessed.
