The German Energiewende pursues ambitious goals in terms of greenhouse gas emission reductions, renewable energy production and energy efficiency improvements. Moreover, it reduces Germany’s dependency on fossil fuel imports and therefore its exposure to price and supply risks. Against this background, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) is pursuing international energy policy cooperations with the goal of building trusting and lasting energy relationships with partner countries.

adelphi consult, The Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP), The Renewables Academy (RENAC) and The German American Chambers of Commerce (GACC) are supporting the BMWi in their aim to foster energy policy exchange with the US. With the energy policy dialogue, Germany aims to intensify the exchange of relevant experience and explore new areas of collaboration.
