We connect stakeholders in coal regions
Lusatia and other coal regions in transition can benefit from the ideas and expertise of regional stakeholders as well as lessons from other coal regions that face similar challenges. Due to the complexity of energy transitions, ideas from the private sector, policy makers, researchers, affected communities, civil society, and practitioners are equally important to develop robust solutions and build acceptance.
IKEM is building on its existing network in and beyond Lusatia and expertise with Germany´s energy transition to connect stakeholders in and across different coal regions worldwide. We organise events and establish platforms that offer networking opportunities, facilitate the exchange of solutions and experiences, and encourage the joint development of visions and strategies.
IKEM complements its networking activities with applied research and innovative communication formats that give easier access to research results and ensure a broad diffusion of best practices.
IKEM draws lessons from its research activities and the exchange with stakeholders to advocate for necessary improvements in the regulatory framework.
