Energy policy – development-policy involvement in international initiatives

Various international processes, and the vigorous engagement of multilateral development organisations, provide an impressive demonstration of the growing importance attached by humankind to the challenge of sustainable energy supply. A leader in the use of innovative renewable energy technologies, the German government is playing a major role in helping define international targets and implement concrete measures. Cooperation activities are being pursued at the level of the EU, within the G8, and together with the World Bank and the regional development banks. German develop­ment policy is also promoting cooperation with global networks and public-private partnerships.
