G7 Summit: Germany and the United States with a new climate and energy partnership

Germany and the United States want to work more closely together to expand renewable energy such as wind power and control emissions from road traffic. When the Energy Partnership was signed in Berlin on Friday, Climate Minister Robert Hebeck focused here on coastal wind energy and hydrogen.

Both Germany and the United States want to build about 30 gigawatts of sea capacity by 2030. However, with its long coastline, the United States will have more energy and more than the target. The document states that a joint steering committee should formulate common goals and evaluate progress.

Kerry praised Germany

The German-American expert working groups are to work together permanently in four areas: focusing on the development of the marine wind energy sector, the hydrogen topic, non-greenhouse gas emissions transportation and cooperation with developing and developing countries.

US Climate Commissioner John Kerry has hailed Germany as a global pioneer of energy change. “It’s a country that took the risk of making significant investments in renewable energy long before it became a civilization or a business,” Kerry said. Both countries, in their cooperation, wanted to encourage other countries to use the opportunities for energy change.

The agreement is based on a collaboration between then – President Angela Merkel (CDU) and US President Joe Biden last summer. The declaration was signed on Friday on the sidelines of the G7 meeting of the Ministers of Environment, Climate Protection and Energy in Berlin. Germany currently chairs a group of states that include France, Italy, Japan, Canada, the United States and Great Britain.
