Energy & Climate

The Energy & Climate Committee is the voice of AmCham Germany's members in the energy sector representing both energy producers and energy consumers. It monitors legislative developments in energy policy in Germany and the EU and engages in related political debates. The committee advocates for frameworks that encourage investment and innovation and reflect a balanced approach based on ecological and economic considerations such as security of supply. On the national level and in the context of the German Energiewende, the committee advocates for a consistent and competitive sustainable energy policy that strengthens Germany as a business location. Recognizing that international cooperation is critical to overcoming energy and climate challenges, the committee provides a platform for transatlantic discourse on energy and climate issues.
