US-German Workshop and Study Tour on the Energy Transition

Berlin, May 14 – 17, 2018

As the energy systems in Germany and the US undergo a fundamental transformation, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) is eager to enhance the transatlantic energy policy dialogue by promoting a deeper exchange between leading think tanks and energy experts from both countries.

Therefore, BMWi invites select representatives of US think tanks to a four-day workshop and study tour in Berlin. The workshop and tour will consist of sessions in the following format:

  • In-depth presentations
  • Panel discussions
  • Interactive debates with qualified moderation
  • Site visits in Berlin and nearby areas

All sessions will be held in English.

In addition to the speakers named or described in the draft agenda a small number of select experts from German think tanks, NGOs, government and business will participate in individual sessions.
