Event Description


Every spring, high-level international decision makers come together to discuss the fundamental transition of the global energy sector and its impact on climate change. This year the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue 2018, held by the German Federal Government, will take place on 17 and 18 April in the Federal Foreign Office in Berlin.

Over the past years, the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue has become a leading international forum for high-level policymakers, as well as industry, science and civil society representatives, to exchange ideas about a safe, afforda­ble and environmentally responsible global energy transition. For participants, it provides an ideal opportunity to share in-depth knowledge, discuss innovative con­cepts and shape the political discourse.

In 2017, more than 2,000 high-level international guests from 93 countries with 30 ministers, vice-ministers and state secretaries as well as 50 official delegations met 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.
