The German energy transition and future UK energy policy

Abstract

UK and Germany have two competing energy paths.
The first approach is fixated on energy supply and large individual investments like nuclear in a centralised energy supply system, with renewable energy technologies playing an increasing but still peripheral part. This is where the UK is right now.
The second approach turns the problem on its head and starts with energy efficiency and demand-side management, emphasising using less energy in the first place and meeting energy demand with renewable technologies. This is where Germany is at present.
