The Changing Energy Landscape in the Atlantic Space

In their review of the past, present and future energy systems in the Wider Atlantic, Ecologic Institute authors find that the Atlantic Space dominates all aspects of the world's energy systems, and that this will not change with foreseeable energy transformations. Some energy systems are in decline: nuclear power for economic and technological risk-related reasons and fossil energies for reasons related to economics and climate change. Growth of an emerging new energy system, based on renewable energies, is accelerating as the costs of renewable technologies fall. The publication is available for download.Read more

About the Transatlantic Program

Welcome to the Transatlantic Program at Ecologic Institute.

Ecologic Institute's Transatlantic Program strengthens transatlantic relations in the field of environmental policy, as well as in the integration of environmental concerns into other areas of policy, such as foreign relations and trade. Since 2001, the program has focused on transatlantic relations both between individual countries and among the European Union, Canada, Latin America, the Caribbean and the United States.

In 2008, the Ecologic Institute, Washington DC office was founded to strengthen the bridge across the Atlantic. Two of its key programs, "Europe and its Policies" and "Transatlantic Outreach" enhance exchange about environmental policy developments in the European Union.

Ecologic Institute's international staff has expertise in handling the "soft" parts of international and intercultural understanding insofar as they affect the "hard" policy issues. Internship and fellowship opportunities are offered through the program, in part through support of the Konrad von Moltke Fund.
