Energy and Society
In addition to all the technical, economic and legal aspects that were of course at the centre of a project such as WindNODE, we were also concerned with the question of how a change in perspective on the subject of energy can lead to success and create more appealing stories: technology leadership of an export nation, good and future-oriented jobs, cleaner cities, decentralised participation in value creation, fascination through technology - all this and more can be part of the energy transition. We want to make people enthusiastic about energy and the energy transition, and show their aesthetic appeal. Samples of our work can be found in this special feature.
The travelling exhibition “WindNODE Live!” makes it possible to live and experience the energy transition 2.0. It seeks to raise awareness and arouse interest as well as create greater understanding of the challenges of the energy transition.
Energie und Kunst
Art speaks to the senses and emotions; an approach to the subject that encourages reflection. That is the idea behind the WindNODE project “Energie und Kunst” by Maria Reinisch commissioned by WindNODE partner TU Berlin.
Perspektivwechsel auf die Energiewende
The project invites you to change perspectives with the young generation who is most affected by the consequences of climate change and the success or failure of the energy transition. With the support of the TU Berlin, young people from Germany and Nepal were asked about their ideas and experiences on the subject of energy.
Under the title of “e-stories”, contributions were published here that consider the literary side of energy and the energy transition. We showcase past and present texts and authors capturing our handling of resources in stories with a particular focus on electricity.
artwork.earth - The Atlas for Art on Ecology and Climate, Energy and Resources
Artwork Earth is a map, an archive and a meeting place. How is the most urgent global evolution of our present day reflected in art? How is it dealt with? Artwork Earth was designed and developed for this specific purpose. The exhibition will feature works of art that deal with ecological developments, climate change and fossil and renewable resources.
Via Energyhack, developers and visionaries could weigh in and collaborate on a sustainable electricity supply and digital strategies for the future. The participants could develop applications and hardware prototypes and receive professional assistance from energy and data experts. The focus lay on projects that should improve social sensibility with regard to electrical grids, energy grids and the energy transition.
Participation and Acceptance
For WindNODE, we have tried to find a definition of the terms participation and acceptance that is as clear as possible, but at the same time manageable for the practice of our diverse projects. The poster shows the WindNODE approaches to these topics and assigns different project contents to each of them.
During 5 virtual meetings, 21 citizens from in and around Greifswald discussed a pricing mechanism for CO2 emissions and prepared proposals on how to correctly shape such pricing mechanism along with which measures should be implemented to complement them.
