“Strategic key for the energy transition”


The energy transition is one of the world’s largest modernisation and investment projects, and intensive research will remain key to the endeavour, writes Germany’s economy and energy minister Brigitte Zypries in a guest commentary in newspaper Tagesspiegel. “For this path, we need new technologies – probably even technologies we can’t even imagine today. This can only succeed with an intensification of research and development,” writes Zypries. She said the government’s energy research programme last year spent almost 900 million euros on 4,600 projects.
