Energiewende: Germany’s Transition to Renewable Energy

Wednesday, October 21st, 7 pm

Stony Point Center

17 Cricketown Road, Stony Point, NY

Alexander Franke of Germany’s Heinrich Böll Foundation will present information and answer questions:

  • What is really happening in Germany with renewable energy?

  • Why is it important?

  • What does it mean for the Hudson River Valley?

  • Can we follow their example and go 100% renewable?

  • What would be the cost and is it worth it?

Energy Transformation!  That’s what the German policy of Energiewende is all about—a bold move toward an all-renewable, nonnuclear future. It is a way to make energy production more democratic through distributed generation on the roof tops of residents. Germany took the first hard steps 20 years ago; now it is our turn. Find out about how it works, why it works, and what it holds for the future—both theirs and ours.

Alexander Franke is a project assistant for the German Energy Transition project where he has worked since 2012. The German Energy Transition is a project of the German Heinrich Böll Foundation,in Berlin, Germany. The Institute aims to explain the German Energiewende and its policies to an international audience. In his research, Mr. Franke concentrates on renewable energy and transitions to sustainable energy.
