Germany has decided to phase out nuclear power and invest massively in renewable energy sectors. A green revolution in said to be in the making. The harshest critics, however, claim that phasing out nuclear power will only lead to increasing CO2 emissions.
Denmark has committed to increase eco-efficiency and to bring about a renewables revolution. Denmark is most of all seen as a role model in the use of wind power.
What are the lessons to be learned from German and Danish energy and climate policies? Are they really showing the way to a clean energy future?
The event is organized by the Foundation for European Progressive Studies with the support of the Kalevi Sorsa Foundation.
