Germany Picks up and Runs with Clean Energy Economy: Rejected by America in the 1980’s
An example of the German energy initiatives can be found in Reichstag. Known as ‘Energiewende’, which translates into ‘energy change’, this is an area that was rebuilt from the 1999 ruins. The Energiewende establishes the end of the use of nuclear power and fossil fuels and the institution of renewable energy sources such as wind, solar and biomass. The target date set by the government is for eighty percent of renewable power by the year 2050. When German citizens were interviewed, many believe that this number will actually be one hundred percent; and this demonstrates the attitude commitment of the people. Their debate about clean energy started in the 1980’s when the U.S. was focused on the continued search for oil and fossil fuel sources. Germany was already looking to their own future and for the well-being of their country and people.
