Exhibition highlights the transformation of Germany’s energy system

The German Federal Foreign Office’s touring exhibition on Germany's energy transition called ‘Energiewende’ is coming to the campus of Tampere University of Technology. The exhibition will be open in the Language Centre on the second floor of the Main Building from 25 Sep to 29 Sep.

The ‘Energiewende’ exhibition showcases Germany’s road to a safe and environmentally friendly future and financial success. It illustrates Germany’s decision to phase out fossil fuels and nuclear energy and shift to renewable sources. Germany’s plan is to have half of its power come from renewables by 2030.

The exhibition is open daily from 08:00 to 18:00. Come and see what the energy transition is about and what has already been achieved! The exhibition is free and open to all. The exhibition texts are in German, but materials are also available in English and Finnish. Welcome!

The exhibition opens to the public on Monday, 25 September at 17:00. Ambassador of Germany to Finland Detlef Lingemann will open the exhibition. In addition to Lingemann, the speakers at the opening event include Vice President for Education Petri Suomala of TUT, Professor of Electrical Energy Engineering Seppo Valkealahti, and Director of the TUT Language Centre Heidi Jauni. Refreshments will be served courtesy of the Embassy of Germany as well as German delicacies prepared by Erasmus exchange students.
