As part of its weekly seminar series and in collaboration with the German Embassy in Doha, the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies was pleased to host Dr. Manfred Fischedick, Deputy Director of the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy in Germany, on October 30, 2013.
Fischedick presented “Energy Policy in the European Union,” focusing on Germany’s experience in transitioning to a viable and diversified energy system and the country’s success in introducing a large proportion of renewable energies into its energy mix and into electricity generation in particular. The guest speaker utilized a multi-tiered approach to the analysis of the German and European energy system which comprised three levels: the micro level, which addresses the scientific and technological dimension, that is, the available renewable energy technologies; the intermediate level which is concerned with the political, economic and social dimensions and, in particular, the policy-making process and framework in which this process takes place; and the macro level represented by the global energy
market and prices and the geopolitical dimension.
