In 2008, the transatlantic climate bridge was launched in Berlin. Politicians, business people and researchers from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean had been invited by the German Federal Foreign Office and the Federal Ministry for the Environment (BMU) to further intensify and develop transatlantic climate and energy policy cooperation. The transatlantic climate bridge aimed to bring together leading experts on energy and climate issues to discuss approaches to renewable energy promotion, emissions trading and many other topics.

On behalf of the BMU, adelphi sought to strengthen the sustainable energy prospects of this initiative. Roundtable events in the United States (California, Illinois) and Berlin were only one instrument used to systematically strengthen transatlantic learning processes on how to promote transformation to a low carbon economy. In addition, adelphi partnered with the Worldwatch Institute to discuss transatlantic climate and energy topics in the CONNECTED Newsletter.
