Energy Transition in Germany: The Role of Governments and Civil Society

Keep at it, keep moving, don’t let anyone ever tell you it can’t be done… and it is communities that make it happen.” – Miranda Schreur

‘Energy Transition’ is becoming a more and more familiar term as it becomes prevalent in the dialogue around our energy future. It carries different meanings among different individuals and countries; the idea of clean energy and what sources of energy are ‘best’ is widely debated.

Rolf Keilman is an architect at Truex & Cullins and former managing partner of the Burlington-based firm. Statement from Rolf on his approach to architecture: My mother and father were both craft people. As a weaver and silversmith, they spent their lives crafting items of beauty and utility. My interest in art and architecture came through sculpture and this has spurred a sustained involvement in the craft of building design. Architecture is a child-like activity…creative, spontaneous but requiring great care and method.
