Transcript

  • 1. Inaugural Bayer Climate Award – Berlin, March 24, 2009 Page Special thanks and call for resolute action Eberhard Jochem
  • 2. Special Thanks
    • Thanks to Bayer AG for
    • addressing the theme of “research on behalf of climate protection”
    • designating a generic theme such as “energy efficiency” as worthy of distinction
    • going to the trouble and providing the resources to address this auditorium
    • regarding this award as a symbol of gratitude for collaboration between industry and science.

  • 3. Special Thanks
    • Complex findings are always brought about in teams and networks
    • with colleagues in technology: Harald Bradke, Kornelis Blok, Daniel Spreng, Daniel Favrat, Marc Levine, et al.
    • with colleagues in economics: Hans-Joachim Ziesing, Peter Hennicke, et al.
    • in a research group team : Renate Schmitz, M.A., Doris Seitz, Gilian Bowman-Köhler
    • with the greatest patience and understanding: Angelika Jochem-Burger

  • 4. Challenges for the Coming Years
    • The goal: to achieve zero global growth in greenhouse gases by 2025 and reduce emissions by 2 percent annually thereafter
    • Our homework:
    • To achieve totally efficient, low-emission capital stock for the OECD states by 2080, e.g. buildings, electricity production, industrial processes
    • To achieve a previously unknown level of cooperation between industry, politicians and academia for breakthroughs in innovation
    • To eliminate wastefulness as a status symbol and anchor resource efficiency as a value
    Page
  • 5. Call for Resolute Action
    • Resignation? Not a responsible answer “Let's be realistic, let’s try the impossible”
    • The world needs many global players that - produce plastics with 70 % renewable raw materials - offer passive houses and eco-commercial buildings - produce large cars weighing 700 kg instead of 2 tons
    • - drive membrane and absorption technology, biotechnology and chip technology - are listed in the Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index over decades

  • 6. Energy and Materials Efficiency in Germany
    • Goal of the German government: to double energy productivity between 1990 and 2020 - difficult to achieve, as time is running out: 2.7 % a year
    • Expected benefits:
    • - An additional €20 billion in investment annually and 300,000 jobs
    • Strengthening of manufacturers’ and service suppliers’ export position
    • Can the disproportionate ratio between the current bank bailouts and real investment in climate protection be reconciled?
    Page
  • 7. Proposals to speed up diffusion
    • Learning local networks
    • imported from Switzerland
    • accelerated efficiency through the exchange of experiences between those responsible for energy policy
    • 15 networks currently operational, about 30 networks by the end of 2009
    • potential of between 500 and 700
    • profit of €10 per ton at a CO 2 reduction of 20 million tons
  • 8. Closing Thoughts
    • …… The stone age did not end due to a lack of stone, but rather through the command of a more efficient technology
    • The fossil fuel energy age could be brought to a close in this century through - profitable energy- and materials-efficient technologies and services, and the use of renewable energies
    • - intensive cooperation between industrialized and emerging economies
    • integration of external costs for energy and materials use
    • a shift in social values and a willingness to act
