Kick-off event Energiewende Twinning Towns
28 May @ 13:00 - 29 May @ 13:00
The project Energiewende twinning towns aims at existing or newly founded cooperations between cities or communities that intend to deepen or initiate their cooperation on renewable energies. The core of the project are bilateral workshops in one of the twinning municipalities, which offer municipal authorities and local stakeholders such as public utilities the opportunity to exchange experience and transfer knowledge. In moderated workshops, the twinning towns will be able to exchange practical know-how related to renewable energy technologies.
Kick-off event May 28-29 2019: representatives from the participating communities get to know each other and present their projects and ideas. The event will be held at the Federal Foreign Office and includes an excursion to a good-practice-project in Berlin.
