The 80th Energy Dialogue: “Germany’s Energy Policy between Paris and Trump” will take place on the 2nd of December, 2016, in the German Parliamentary Association, Berlin.

Confirmed speakers:

Stefan Kapferer

Executive Director and Member of the Steering Committee, German Association of the Energy and Water Industry (BDEW)

Dr. Patrick Graichen

Director, Agora Energiewende


The goal of the dialogue, hosted by Prof. Dr. Friebdert Pflüger and Mr. Janusz Reiter, is to enable a non-ideological, cross-party exchange between business, academia, media, diplomacy and politics on the significant energy policy questions of our times, in order to pave the way to an energy consensus in society. The Energy Dialogue engages with the energy and climate policy goals of the German Federal Government – climate protection, economic competitiveness and energy security – while solidly embedding them in the European and international dimension.

The Energy Dialogue at the Reichstag is a monthly event organized since 2009 in the German Parliamentary Society, in co-operation with the American Chamber of Commerce in Germany, Central Europe Energy Partners (CEEP), the business magazine BIZZ energy today and the energy portal ENERGLOBE.DE.
