For the 8th and for the time being last meeting of the German-Japanese Energy Exchange Council (GJETC), the Japanese and German council members will meet in mid-March at the Japanese-German Center Berlin (JDZB). During the two-day meeting, the results of the various working groups and the resulting policy recommendations will be discussed. These will subsequently be published as a final report.
The focus of the second phase of the Council's work from 2018-2020 was on the two working groups on the topics "Hydrogen Society" and "Digitalization and the Energy Transition". In addition, four further topics were jointly discussed by members of the Council:
  • Energy Efficiency in Building
  • Long-term scenarios and review mechanisms
  • Transportation & Sector-coupling
  • Integration Costs of renewable energy sources
The final Council meeting will also discuss the role of the GJETC as a model for bilateral cooperation for the global implementation of energy system transformation and its possible continuation.
