European Climate Pact Ambassador representing the European Committee of the Regions in Germany
The Free State of Saxony has a long tradition as an energy region with two lignite mining regions, the Lausitz region and the Central German region. By discontinuing lignite power generation by the end of 2038 at the latest, the region is making a major contribution to European climate targets. At the same time, there are energy-related and socio-economic challenges that are faced with great innovation and development potential. I would like to talk about this as an ambassador.
