“The turnaround in energy policy represents a systemic shift.” That is one key statement by Lutz Engelke that can be found in the business section of this weekend's “Die Welt.” In a conversation with Andrea Seibel on the occasion of the publication of the book “future lab germany”, he talked about Germany's role as a laboratory for innovative production.
The book, jointly edited by the German Council for Sustainable Development and TRIAD Berlin, was published by the Murmann publishing house on July 2nd. German and international experts use their contributions in “future lab germany – innovations for tomorrow's world” to provide insight into Germany's role as a laboratory of the future. They explain why it is urgent that our society leaves behind the beaten tracks, and they present concrete scenarios on how the world of tomorrow can benefit from the solutions the “future lab germany” has to offer.
The authors from the fields of politics, industry and society outline the cornerstones of a green economy that might become one of the strongest export products of Germany. Contributors include, among others, Ralf Fücks, Tanja Gönner, Barbara Kux, Eckard Minx, Harald Preissler, Achim Steiner, Farooq Ullah, Alexander Voigt, Herwart Wilms, Manfred Wittenstein, Sun-Jin Yun and Vladimir M. Zakharov.
