Join the Dialogue
The Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue has proven to be an ideal platform for an international public and private audience to come together to discuss viable concepts for the ongoing transformation of the energy sector – the Energiewende. In 2018, Foreign and Energy Ministers met with some 2,000 participants such as CEOs, Managing Directors, Presidents, Directors, Managers, and Heads of Department from more than 90 countries to discuss ways that national governments and energy sector stakeholders can contribute to meeting the ambitious goals of the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda.
The inspiring dialogue on the global energy transition continues with high-level participants from politics, industry, science and civil society with a special focus on:
- integrated energy transition
- structural change

The Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue is hosted and supported by the German Federal Government and a joint initiative of German Renewable Energy Federation (BEE), German Solar Association (BSW-Solar), German Energy Agency (dena) and eclareon.
