it ended on February 27 due to the threat of coronavirus.

Exhibition Outline

Welcome to “energy.transitions”.

This exhibition features the future of energy that is essential for our lives. A new section introducing Japan’s energy situation was added to the earlier exhibition “energie.wenden (energy transitions)” held at the Deutsches Museum in 2017.

“energy.transitions” implies converting the energy being currently used to something else. If we continue using fossil fuels such as oil and coal, global warming will worsen. Therefore, switching to a sustainable energy source free of carbon dioxide emissions is a task that requires our immediate attention. How should we proceed with energy transitions?

The leading participant of this exhibition is you – our visitors. For each of the 10 themes, please listen to the voices of people and reflect on what the future of energy should be. Then, express your energy policy as if you are a politician.

Create your energy transitions!

Imagine you are a politician, and decide your best way to promote “energy transition”.
