Bayer Climate Award: Prof. em. Dr.-Ing. Eberhard Jochem

  1. 1. Inaugural Bayer Climate Award – Berlin, March 24, 2009 Page Special thanks and call for resolute action Eberhard Jochem
  2. 2. Special Thanks <ul><li>Thanks to Bayer AG for </li></ul><ul><li>addressing the theme of “research on behalf of climate protection” </li></ul><ul><li>designating a generic theme such as “energy efficiency” as worthy of distinction </li></ul><ul><li>going to the trouble and providing the resources to address this auditorium </li></ul><ul><li>regarding this award as a symbol of gratitude for collaboration between industry and science. </li></ul>Page
  3. 3. Special Thanks <ul><li>Complex findings are always brought about in teams and networks </li></ul><ul><li>with colleagues in technology: Harald Bradke, Kornelis Blok, Daniel Spreng, Daniel Favrat, Marc Levine, et al. </li></ul><ul><li>with colleagues in economics: Hans-Joachim Ziesing, Peter Hennicke, et al. </li></ul><ul><li>in a research group team : Renate Schmitz, M.A., Doris Seitz, Gilian Bowman-Köhler </li></ul><ul><li>with the greatest patience and understanding: Angelika Jochem-Burger </li></ul>Page
  4. 4. Challenges for the Coming Years <ul><li>The goal: to achieve zero global growth in greenhouse gases by 2025 and reduce emissions by 2 percent annually thereafter </li></ul><ul><li>Our homework: </li></ul><ul><li>To achieve totally efficient, low-emission capital stock for the OECD states by 2080, e.g. buildings, electricity production, industrial processes </li></ul><ul><li>To achieve a previously unknown level of cooperation between industry, politicians and academia for breakthroughs in innovation </li></ul><ul><li>To eliminate wastefulness as a status symbol and anchor resource efficiency as a value </li></ul>Page
  5. 5. Call for Resolute Action <ul><li>Resignation? Not a responsible answer “Let's be realistic, let’s try the impossible” </li></ul><ul><li>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 </li></ul><ul><li>- drive membrane and absorption technology, biotechnology and chip technology - are listed in the Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index over decades </li></ul>Page
  6. 6. Energy and Materials Efficiency in Germany <ul><li>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 </li></ul><ul><li>Expected benefits: </li></ul><ul><li>- An additional €20 billion in investment annually and 300,000 jobs </li></ul><ul><li>Strengthening of manufacturers’ and service suppliers’ export position </li></ul><ul><li>Can the disproportionate ratio between the current bank bailouts and real investment in climate protection be reconciled? </li></ul>Page
  7. 7. Proposals to speed up diffusion <ul><li>Learning local networks </li></ul><ul><li>imported from Switzerland </li></ul><ul><li>accelerated efficiency through the exchange of experiences between those responsible for energy policy </li></ul><ul><li>15 networks currently operational, about 30 networks by the end of 2009 </li></ul><ul><li>potential of between 500 and 700 </li></ul><ul><li>profit of €10 per ton at a CO 2 reduction of 20 million tons </li></ul>
  8. 8. Closing Thoughts <ul><li>…… The stone age did not end due to a lack of stone, but rather through the command of a more efficient technology </li></ul><ul><li>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 </li></ul><ul><li>- intensive cooperation between industrialized and emerging economies </li></ul><ul><li>integration of external costs for energy and materials use </li></ul><ul><li>a shift in social values and a willingness to act </li></ul>Page
  9. 9. Page Amos 6:1, 3 Woe to those who feel secure in the mountain of Samaria! Do you put off the day of calamity, and would you bring near the seat of violence?
