Dear Energy Colleague,
 
The ambitious renewable energy policy of the
European
Union and the German Government has
stimulated an unanticipated increase of renewable
electricity generation capacities. Likewise the
renewable shares in the heating and the
transportation sectors are on the rise. New global
industries have been created wh
ich are flourishing
in spite of still uncompetitive costs.
 
Following the Fukushima nuclear catastrophe, the
German government has decided to speed up the
phase out of nuclear power in this country. If
renewable energies cannot close the generation
gap, inc
reased greenhouse gas emissions may be
the consequence impacting the European
Emission Markets.
 
The European 13
th
 
European IAE
E Conference in
Düsseldorf
 
will offer the opportunity to discuss
these developments and to analyze the policy and
its economic, ec
ological and social implications
from an energy economics perspective.
