Energiewende Act for Berlin
On 22 October 2013, Dr. Stephan Sina, Senior Fellow at Ecologic Institute, moderated a discussion on the planned Energiewende Act for Berlin with about 90 representatives taking part, from business, policy, and administration, in Berlin City Hall. A summary of the discussion is available for download.

After greetings from Stephan Sina and State Secretary Christian Gaebler, the head of the Special Department for Climate Protection and Energy within the Senate Department Lothar Stock presented the status and selected provisions of the planned Energiewende Act. This formed the basis for the subsequent discussion moderated by Stephan Sina.
