Germany's Energiewende - the energy revolution - up close.
The goal of Germany's Energiewende, or energy tranformation, is very clear. To make energy production in Germany sustainable and act responsibly for subsequent generations. The target: by 2050, 80 percent of Germany's electricity should be from renewables. Some towns in Germany are way ahead of the game. Take Wolfhagen in the state of Hesse, where the energy revolution has already taken place.
