The Paris Agreement set the finish line. The technologies and solutions to get there are ready but still remain in their starting blocks. Now we just need to start running towards our goal! Good and innovatives examples how energy efficiency is cleverly used can be found from Kapstadt to Kassel, from Shanghai to San Francisco. Which projects and policies are the global frontrunners in saving energy? What can we learn from each another to reach our common goals? How can we make energy efficiency-victories out of our climate targets? Those (among others) are the questions we want to discuss and answer with you at our annual kick-off-conference #jak2019!


Presenters: Volker Angres (ZDF), Nadine Kreutzer (FluxFM)
