As part of the vhs lecture series "Questions to Science", Professor Kai Hufendiek, Director of the Institute of Energy Economics and Rational Energy Use (IER) at the University of Stuttgart, will speak on the topic of "Ways to achieve a climate-neutral energy system in Germany – possible solutions and impacts".

Everybody is talking about climate protection and sustainability. Just defining goals however isn’t enough, we need to implement them. Technical innovations play a key role here, but social preferences and the political instruments employed in the process are key as well. Ultimately, various options exist for how to transform our energy system to make it climate-neutral.

One important condition which is often overlooked is that the energy system must continue to function securely, reliably and efficiently in all its complexity, our economy must remain competitive and our standard of living must be retained. We are dedicated to answering the questions of what possible transformation paths exist and how they work. How can we scientifically evaluate the consequences for the future?

Event language is German. Admission is free of charge. The lecture will take place in attendance and will also be streamed live. If you would like to attend in person, you must register. Detailed information can be found on the vhs website [DE].
