In order to aid the current positive development of the fundamental shift in the energy systems worldwide, in which last year more money has been invested globally in renewable energy sources than in all fossil and nuclear technologies combined, the German Federal Government invites the international energy elite to the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue for the third time.

The Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue is the pivotal international summit of the German gov-ernment facilitating in-depth, high-level dialogue on energy transitions, which will be a fun-damental shift towards an affordable, secure and ecologically friendly energy system based on renewables, energy efficiency as well as innovation.
