Here like in the rest of Europe, there are strong potentials for renewables.The exchange with their German colleagues was valued as a very critical contribution helping them to approach their own energy transition at home.Renewable energy means also decentralization and more possibilities for citizens' participation at different levels.The production of energy doesn't need to be in the hands of big utilities. Municipalities can benefit from the local energy production and have the means to provide their citizens with more services. That's probably why the Energiewende is supported by a huge majority of the German population (93%).
