Study tour on long-term energy planning to Germany

The Indo-German Energy Programme (IGEN-Access II) project organised a study tour on long-term energy planning to Germany. The study tour focused on how the energy transition happens in Germany and introduced best practices as well as innovative solutions to the participants. High-ranking decision-makers from the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) and four Indian states joined the study tour that took place in the Rhine-Main region around Frankfurt as well as Freiburg. The study tour included meetings and discussions, inter alia, with the Ministry of Climate Action, Environment, Energy and Mobility in Rhineland-Palatinate, the Energy Agency of Hesse, the Passive House Institute as well the Fraunhofer ISE and ISI. Additionally, the participants visited various field sites, for instance, Agriphotovoltaics, waste-to-energy and hydrogen. The study tour fostered active discussions around long-term energy planning and the required enabling ecosystem with the right policies and framework conditions to achieve a clean, affordable and secure energy supply.
