Germany’s Energiewende Travelling Exhibition

The German Embassy is presenting the Federal Foreign Office’s interactive travelling exhibition on the German energy transition (“Energiewende”) at the Hyatt Regency Perth until 10 November

The exhibition caters to the growing interest and attention globally in “Germany’s Energiewende”: Germany is in the midst of a radical transformation. The so-called “Energiewende” (energy transition) aims at cutting German energy demand by half and base supply nearly entirely on renewable energies by 2050. Furthermore, Germany plans to abandon nuclear power altogether by 2022.

The exhibition contains a timeline describing the evolution of German energy policy since the 1970s, presenting milestones and core issues at interactive stations. It also describes how Germany is meeting its international responsibilities with regard to sustainability, and outlines the impact the energy transition will have in shaping a future-oriented and innovation-based economy, whilst campaigning for strong international cooperation towards achieving a global Energiewende.

Since its inauguration in April 2016, the exhibition has been on display at more than 30 locations around the world. It’s now coming to Australia and you can see it at the Hyatt Regency in Perth until 10 November!
The travelling exhibition is complemented by a comprehensive website which explains the different elements and the development of the “Energiewende”. It can be accessed through
