Trialog: (De)centralized! Find the balance for a sustainable, reliable and affordable energy system
28. May 2018 @ 9:00 - 17:00
The energy system is becoming more and more decentralized in many areas. In addition to the few hundred power plants that have supplied Germany earlier, many small producers have now emerged. Whether photovoltaic roof systems or wind turbines – the producers are mostly cooperatives or private individuals, so-called “prosumers”. Many see this change as a new opportunity for participation in the energy system; others point to the higher cost of a more decentralized energy system.
Experts from the academy project “Energy Systems of the Future (ESYS)” discussed together with stakeholders from politics and administration, business and organized civil society what our energy system should look like in 2050 and how further developments of the energy system in a decentralized or centralized direction can be evaluated – with regard to total costs, acceptance or jobs.
The ninth Trialog on the energy transition in cooperation with ESYS took place on May 28, 2018, 9:00-17:00 hrs, at the Allianz Forum Berlin and was hosted by the Humboldt-Viadrina Governance Platform.
