Action Week Renewable Energies

The German Renewable Energy Federation e.V. (BEE) and its member associations have started a digital action week on the occasion of the "Renewable Energy Day". Under the motto "Energiewende - Gemeinsam packen wir's an," the action week will focus on the diverse and sustainable jobs in this industry, which already significantly shape small and medium-sized businesses and industry.

As a prelude, the BEE press conference on April 16, 2021, clarified how a greenhouse gas reduction of 65 percent can be achieved by 2030 on the basis of a further growing supply of renewable energies in all sectors. On Tuesday, April 20, 2021, the BEE will discuss the question of what role labor market policy plays in the success of the energy transition with representatives from politics, science and practice as part of the digital policy talk. The action week will be accompanied by a variety of events and a participatory campaign on the social media channels. We invite all co-creators of the energy transition to participate in the action and share a statement about their contribution under the hashtags #TeamErneuerbare and #TagDerErneuerbaren on social media.

"With numerous participants, the social media action of the BEE and its partners will show how strong, diverse and promising the renewable energy sector is. More than 300,000 people in Germany and 11.5 million worldwide work here across the entire breadth of the value chain, from plant mechanics to licensing officers," said BEE President Dr. Simone Peter. This makes it visible that the energy transition is a joint project in which countless people have been involved from the very beginning, she added.

The Renewable Energy Day initiative of the municipality of Oederan, which was launched to commemorate the Chernobyl reactor disaster, sends a clear signal for clean alternatives. Since 1996, operators of renewable energy plants have been opening their doors and showing the population up and down the country the technological diversity of renewable energies in all sectors. What began 25 years ago with 27 plant operators in Saxony is now an established day of action throughout Germany.
