Reducing greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption in the transport sector plays a central role in effective climate action in both Japan and Germany. Without significant changes in propulsion technologies and innovative concepts for private transport, public transport and freight transport, climate protection goals will not be achieved and the energy transition will not succeed.
Low-emission transport systems and opportunities for effectively using renewable energies in the transport sector will be at the centre of the agenda at the 9th German-Japanese Environment and Energy Dialogue Forum on 19th and 20th April 2018 in Berlin.
German and Japanese experts from industry, politics, and the sciences will discuss a host of topics, including:
- Political strategies for increasing energy efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the transport sector
- Challenges, potentials, and limits of modal shifts and infrastructure development
- Low-emission transport technologies in cities
- Alternative transport technologies with a focus on hydrogen and electric battery vehicles
Since its founding in 2007, the German-Japanese Environment and Energy Dialogue Forum has developed into a leading platform for exchange between experts from industry, research and politics on current topics in the fields of climate, environmental protection and energy, and has established itself as an incubator for bilateral collaborative projects between the two industrial nations.
The hosts of the event are the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB), the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) and the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO). The organisation of the event is being carried out by adelphi and ECOS Consult.
Participation in the event is free. All presentations will be simultaneously interpreted into Japanese/German. The entire programme of the Environment and Energy Dialogue Forum can be found here.
