10: Energy Transition: Same Goal – Different Ways

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
english language

The debates about how to transform energy systems are being waged worldwide. Austria is positioning itself as a pioneer of an innovation-driven energy transition and excels at integrated systems solutions. However, which other factors and aspects play a role – and what pathways are other nations taking to reach the same goal? International experts will demonstrate different pathways for a successful energy transition and discuss them with the participants. We will interactively produce a possible pattern for a successful energy transition in Austria by 2050.
