In the spring of 2016, the German-Japanese Energy Transition Council (GJETC) was launched, jointly by ECOS Consult, the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment, Energy Ltd., Hennicke Consult and the Institute for Energy Economics Japan. The Expert Council is supported by various ministries and foundations and discusses energy and climate policy issues. It meets twice a year, commissions studies and makes recommendations to the Japanese and German governments. The JDZB hosts the meetings in Germany with the sixth meeting scheduled for March 2019.
