A lot of suggestions and ideas generated at the conference “Energiwende vs. Transition énergétique”

On 19-20 March 2013 a Franco-German conference on today’s energy challenges in both countries took place at the Stuttgart Town Hall. More than 60 delegates represented municipalities, professional associations and institutions from both sides of the Rhine.

The two-day conference offered participants the opportunity to learn more about the current processes in the neighbouring country. On the first day speakers from politics, science and business gave interesting insights and made already many suggestions for new possible fields of the Franco-German cooperation. Especially to be emphasised are the Covenant Club active in both countries enabling local authorities to network and stand up for local climate activities in their respective countries. On the second day, the municipal practice became the focus of attention: After several workshops allowing insight and intensive exchange on the municipal practice in both countries, the participants developed jointly project ideas that could be implemented by local authorities in the area of energy policy.
