“Global challenges demand global solutions rather than do-it-alone efforts by individual countries. Climate change simply does not stop at national borders and neither should the Energiewende” (German Ambassador Dr. Ulrich Sante).

The German approach to transforming its energy system and combat climate change, the so-called ‘Energiewende’ has garnered immense interest worldwide. The German term is already commonly used in many other languages, including English. The travelling exhibition “The German Energiewende” is meant to pique the interest of visitors and provide extensive information on the topic.

The exhibition showcases the various dimensions of the ‘Energiewende’-project and the multitude of tasks and challenges this ‘generation-project’ involves. Germany will switch to renewable energies by 2050, one step at a time while pursuing ambitious but clear targets using a precise roadmap.

The exhibition covers various thematic areas related to ‘Energiewende’: Energy efficiency, heating, mobility, renewable energies, costs for consumer, climate protection, nuclear power, economical aspects, international aspects, electricity grid, security of supply, energy storage, civil participation and the future of energy supply. Additionally, visitors are invited to a multi-media quiz table at the end of the exhibition.

The exhibition will be featured in several locations across Singapore:

28/05/19 - 14/06/19     German Centre, 25 International Business Park Road
19/06/19 – 15/07/19     Marina Barrage Sustainable Singapore Gallery
