With the initiative "Energy Systems of the Future" (ESYS), acatech - German Academy of Science and Engineering, the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina and the Union of the German Academies of Sciences and Humanities are providing impetus for the debate on the challenges and opportunities of the energy transition in Germany. In the academy project, around 100 experts from science and research are developing options for action to implement a secure, affordable and sustainable energy supply. The project is led by acatech.
In cooperation with the Academies Project "Energy Systems of the Future", the Berlin Governance Platform conducts trialogues as sounding boards for the working groups of the Academies Project.
In the project, around 100 experts from science and research develop analyses and statements on the implementation of a secure, affordable and sustainable energy supply. To ensure that the positions and interests of social stakeholders can be incorporated into the work, the ESYS working groups exchange views with them in various dialog formats. One of these dialog formats was organized by the Berlin Governance Platform in the format of trialoge.
The trialogues serve as an intensive, reasoned discussion between experts of one ESYS working group at a time on a specific topic with representatives from politics, business and organized civil society. By linking scientific and societal knowledge, a broad basis of knowledge is established. Potential conflict situations between the participating stakeholders are sounded out in the process, and discussion obstacles and moods are identified. The results were taken into account in the further work of the working groups and in the final analyses and statements.
