This May, Berlin will be a buzz of activity, as energy experts from around the world join this year’s Berliner Energietage (Berlin Energy Days), from May 22nd- 23rd.
The focus for this year will be “Energy transition: now! together!“, which is a platform for experts in the fields of energy and is an opportunity to discuss the latest ideas and research results for the energy transition on a public stage.
This year, our partners from WECF will be present, talking about the work they have been doing with Step Change, researching the barriers and drivers of tenant electricity in Germany, and how they have been working with citizen scientists and experts in the fields of renewable energies to ensure a decentralized and cost-effective energy supply in cities and true social participation in the energy transition process.
The enormous potential of tenant electricity is sometimes largely untapped, although more than 50% of the German housing stock consists of apartment buildings and the Tenant Electricity Act has been in place since 2017.
To help get a deeper understanding of this, on May 22nd (12:00-13:30), our very own Johannes Baumann from WEFC, will be chairing a panel discussion on the Citizen Science approach and how to plug into the untapped potential of energy transition.
