Agora Energiewende

Achieving climate neutrality by mid-century requires the industrial sector to fully decarbonize within just one generation. While an immense effort for energy-intensive industries in particular, the transition creates tremendous opportunities for investments and clean development. Understanding the processes and challenges is essential for taking political decisions and enabling a smooth transition to a green economy.

To ensure the success of clean energy and industry transitions around the globe and across all sectors, the Agora think tanks – Agora Energiewende, Agora Industry and Agora Agriculture – develop evidence-based strategies and feasible policy proposals. As independent and non-partisan think tanks and policy laboratories, we analyse upcoming challenges, share knowledge with decision-makers and stakeholders and enable a productive exchange of ideas.
Our team is multinational, multidisciplinary, and works across the globe with various partner organizations. To strengthen the reach and impact of our Climate-Neutral Industry work, we are looking for:
