The Exhibition

The German Embassy Kuala Lumpur, in cooperation with GALERI PETRONAS, proudly presents the exhibition “German Energiewende” (Energy Transition) to be shown at the GALERI PETRONAS from 11 – 23 April 2017. Admission is free, no prior registration is required.

The Energy Transition Exhibition is a touring exhibition. It started its journey around the world in Beijing in April 2016. Since then it has toured more than 30 locations and it will be shown in Malaysia for the first time in South-East-Asia.

The Exhibition was devised by the German Federal Foreign Office in order to give those interested an impression of what the energy transition is all about, what it means to the German people and what its essential elements are.

Energy efficiency, renewable energies and phasing out nuclear energy are important pillars of Germany’s energy policy. With the energy transition, or “Energiewende”, Germany intends to make its energy supply more sustainable, environmentally friendly and reliable. By the year 2050, Germany is planning for the country’s energy needs to be met at least by 80 % from renewable energy sources such as solar, wind and hydropower. As of today, nearly 32% have been achieved .

With its experience of the energy transition, Germany is a respected partner in international energy policy. Other countries stand to benefit from Germany’s successes and strategies.

The Federal Foreign Office and the German missions abroad are supporting this exchange of experiences and the international energy policy dialogue. On behalf of the Federal Government, they are working on the international stage to achieve a more sustainable energy policy around the world.
