Workshop on energy turnaround: Main trends and challenges in North-Rhine Westphalia

With the foundation of the “Virtual Institute: Transformation – Energy Turnaround NRW“, a new ideas factory is to be created for the federal state’s Ministry of Science. Among those involved are the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy, the Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanities in Essen (KWI) and other partners.
On Tuesday 18 March 2014, a meeting of the Virtual Institute was held in Düsseldorf, its subject “Prospects for NRW - Main trends and challenges for the energy turnaround in North-Rhine Westphalia”.
In his talk, IWR Director Dr. Norbert Allnoch outlined the structural policy dimensions of the energy turnaround in North-Rhine Westphalia on the basis of the SLAM concept. Dr. Allnoch pointed out that it is not enough to shape the energy turnaround from the perspective of use transformation and climate & environmental protection. Only with the structural integration of business, research and education within the framework of a holistic system approach will a successful energy turnaround be possible, Dr. Allnoch said.
