How can we use fossil fuels - coal, oil and natural gas - more cleanly and more responsibly?
Intelligent use of energy resources is one of the keys to reducing global energy consumption.
How can we make better and more cost-effective use of solar, wind and water power, and of geothermal energy and biomass?
International cooperation must focus on securing a clean and sufficient supply of energy for all people in keeping with our climate objectives.
Representatives of science, industry, politics and society were contributing their personal and research experience as ambassadors of the Science Year 2010. During the Science Year 2010, they presented their work, which covers the variety of disciplines involved in energy research. They were available to the media for interviews and special contributions. They represented the Science Year 2010 at events, and in debates they gave advice on controversial issues such as nuclear energy and explain the different views and impacts.
Numerous events, workshops and competitions enabled children and young people to take a look at energy issues and research projects. The Day of Energy and the Research Exchange were central elements of the Science Year. The Research Exchange enabled school classes to meet with energy researchers and experts. For the first time, school children and teachers could inform themselves online about the work and careers of experts and researchers and arrange a joint meeting at the school or institute. On the Day of Energy on 25 September 2010, research institutions, universities and companies throughout Germany opened their doors to the general public and invited visitors to gain exciting insights into the field of energy research.
The website of the Science Year 2010 offers information about various aspects of the topic of energy.
