Oxford Energy Talk: Andreas Löschel, Professor of Energy and Resource Economics, University of Münster & INET Oxford Visiting Fellow - "Status and Challenges of the German Energiewende"

With  the  energy  transition  or  Energiewende,  the  Germany  government  aims  to  secure  a  “reliable,  economically viable and environmentally sound energy supply”. The goal is to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, increase renewable energies, and improve energy efficiency. Achieving these goals could have significant economic and social costs, and poses challenges for policy design and practical implications. The talk analyses the status of the Energiewende and some of these challenges, presenting the different perspectives and the way forward.
