Exhibtion on German Energiewende

The travelling exhibition “Germany’s Energiewende” is back in India! Commissioned by the German Federal Foreign Office, it demonstrates the path taken by Germany in its move towards sustainable energy supply. Until now, it has been displayed in more than 30 countries worldwide. For the second time, the Indo-German Energy Forum Support Office (IGEF-SO) has been given the responsibility of showcasing the exhibition at various academic institutions across India.

In October and November 2019, the “Germany’s Energiewende” exhibition stopped at Rajagiri School of Engineering and Technology in Cochin, and subsequently at the Rashtreeya Vidyalaya College of Engineering (RVCE), Christ University and the National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS) in Bengaluru. The venues were inaugurated by the Hon’ble German Consulate General in Bengaluru, Ms. Margit Hellwig-Boette, as well as representatives from respective academic institutions. The inaugural events included panel discussions featuring high-profile speakers from the private sector, including Fraunhofer India Office, Mercedes Benz India, International Airport Bengaluru and UNESCO Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Education for Peace and Sustainable Development. Mr. Elios Sprung of IGEF-SO was at the venue and offered the audience insights on the German Energiewende. In 2019, a total of around 5900 visitors enjoyed the exhibition.

Since January 2020, the exhibition has been on display in Mumbai.
