Keynote by Prof. Dr. Claudia Kemfert | Language: English

What the current corona crisis makes evident once again is that in times of crisis, systemic relevance and resilience are very important. Energy system transformation is the solution to both challenges: a successful energy system transformation that guarantees a full supply of domestic renewable energies is systemically relevant and creates enormous economic resilience; it makes us independent of external negative shocks. What's more, it strengthens regional value creation, promotes innovation and enhances the competitiveness of the entire economy. A full supply of renewable energies is technically feasible and economically profitable.

Prof. Dr. Claudia Kemfert, Professor of Energy Economics and Energy Policy at Leuphana University and Head of the department Energy, Transportation, Environment at the German Institute of Economic Research (DIW Berlin), Co-Chair of the German Advisory Council on the Environment
