I will be scientific assistant for energy policy in the parliamentary group of the Pirate Party in the Berlin Chamber of Deputies

In August I start working for the Pirate Party’s parliamantary group in the Berlin Chamber of Deputies as a scientific assistant for energy policy, with focus on the Enquete-Commission “Neue Energie für Berlin – Zukunft der energiewirtschaftlichen Strukturen” [New Energy for Berlin – the future of the energy industry structures]. I am so excited about the challenge we are going to handle in Berlin – transition to renewables and more energy democracy! I hope for a good and fruitful cooperation with all involved in this process! I will publish soon more information about my new work and the work of Enquete-Commission.

Here my contact details in the Berlin Chamber of Deputies.

Conference “The EU Renewable Energy Policy: Challenges and Opportunities”

ffu-logo-final1The conference is going to take place at the Free University of Berlin on 9 May. The title of my conference paper and presentation is: “Poland at the energy policy crossroads – a superficial Europenization?”.

The organizer, the Forschungszentrum für Umweltpolitik (FFU) [Environmental Policy Research Centre] at the Free University of Berlin, about the conference:

Das Forschungszentrum für Umweltpolitik (FFU) der Freien Universität Berlin organisiert mit finanzieller Unterstützung der Fritz Thyssen Stiftung eine Konferenz zum Thema “The EU renewable energy policy: challenges and opportunities”. In der Konferenz gehen junge AkademikerInnen aus dem Bereich der Umwelt- und Energiepolitik der Frage nach, wie und in welchem Ausmaß die erneuerbare Energien-Politik der EU die nationalstaatliche Ebene beeinflusst und damit die Transformation der Mitgliedsstaaten in Richtung eines nachhaltigen, auf erneuerbaren Energien basierenden Energieversorgungssystems vorangetrieben hat.

More information about the conference as well as its programme is available on the website of the FFU.

Panel discussion “Renewable jobs – jobs in renewables: facts and myths” during the congress organized by the Greens/ EFA in Warsaw

ziemiaThe panel discussion “Renewable jobs – jobs in renewables: facts and myths” is going to take place during the participatory debate about Poland and its future “Citizen’s energy for a good climate” organized by the Greens/ European Free Alliance (Greens/ EFA) in the European Parliament from 15 to 16 November in Warsaw.

What is the aim of this panel? As the organizers wrote:

In the midst of the crisis Europe is in need for new innovative sustainable strategies for jobs creation. For the Greens in Europe, investment in renewable energy is clearly one of the solutions to be implemented. There are many good examples across the EU to follow. Together with the public we will be looking at the solutions which could be applied in Poland and how to unleash the potential of green jobs in Poland.

During the panel discussion I am going to present the potential for jobs creation in the renewable energy sector in Poland as well the German experiences in this field. I am going also to discuss the potential for a transfer of these experiences to Poland.

More information about the panel discussion as well as the whole event is available on the website of the Greens/ EFA.
