3. Council Meeting GJETC, 2017


„German-Japanese dialogue: How far can the Energy transition go?“

In September 2015, the world community decided on the „Sustainable Development Goals“ (SDGs) and in December 2015, the „Paris Agreement“ on climate change was unanimously accepted at COP 21. As leading industrialized countries Germany and Japan have a special responsibility to take the lead for implementing the “Paris Agreement” and to contribute as much as possible to a global deep decarbonization pathway.

Bilateral cooperation such as the "German-Japanese Energy Transition Council" (GJETC) can play an important role in mastering the challenges of the energy transition in the respective countries and facilitate the knowledge transfer worldwide with good examples. Since its foundation in May 2016, the German-Japanese Energy Transition Council (GJETC) has been working on strategic and systemic analysis to develop policy advice for new and long-term perspectives on the way to an ambitious energy transition.

One main task of the GJETC is a study program using evidence-based scenarios and system analysis. One year after the council took up its work the preliminary results of the studies will be presented and discussed by the German and Japanese GJETC members.
