Title: Spotlight on Germany: The Digital Agenda for the Energy Transition - Lessons learnt in Germany from the federal programme SINTEG 

Content: Spotlight on Countries Series Episode

Date: 4 November 2020

Overview: Smart Energy Showcases - Digital Agenda for the Energy Transition (SINTEG) is a large-scale programme co-funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy. It comprises over 300 partner organisations and has an overall budget of more than 500 million euro. The showcase regions cover almost the whole of Germany. The SINTEG showcases are large living laboratories that test innovative technologies and business models for future energy provision, particularly in the field of digitisation.
This forum addressed relevant questions such as: 

  • Which key lessons have the showcase regions learned from their work? 
  • What new business models have they developed that could also be applied in other countries? 
  • What will be the next steps to put the solutions into practice and transfer them to other places? 

Impulse statements from specialists from the showcases were followed by a panel discussion and answers to questions from the audience.
