Thursday, Jun 12, 2014

GABC partnered with the German Consulate General Boston, the Mass Clean Energy Center, and the Goethe-Institut Boston to hold a Lecture and Luncheon with Professor Eicke R. Weber, Director of Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE and Professor for Physics / Solar Energy at Albert-Ludwigs-University of Freiburg, Germany. A rapid transformation of our global energy system away from the current fossil and nuclear-based power supply to the efficient use of renewable energy is our big task. With the “Energiewende”, Germany is vigorously embracing this challenge. Prof. Weber presented key elements of the needed transformation process.
