The animated film “Half-time Energiewende?” created by the Oeko-Institut marks 2015 as the half-way point on the path to a power supply that is predominantly based on renewable energy sources. Why? Thirty-five years ago Oeko-Institut coined the term Energiewende (energy transition) in a study that described how a power supply could be free of oil and uranium. From now on and in thirty-five years’ time the energy transition should be accomplished; by 2050 electricity production must be carried out almost completely without fossil fuels.
