Franco-german cooperation for the local energy transition

Results 2014-2016 / Outlook 2017-2019

The Elysée Treaty, signed 54 years ago, lays the foundations for a unique cooperation between France and Germany. Since then, a wide network of common structures and institutions has developed, playing a decisive political role, particularly in the construction of Europe, and whose visibility also extends to the social and cultural fields. However, a prerequisite for successful cooperation between French and German players is knowledge of the respective socio-cultural contexts.
On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Elysée Treaty, Climate Alliance, Energy Cities and the KEA Klimaschutz- und Energieagentur Baden-Württemberg organised a two-day meeting in Stuttgart in March 2013 with French and German local authorities on the theme “Energy Transition vs Energiewende”.
