Keynote and discussion with Amory Lovins, Co-founder of the Rocky Mountain Institute
Amory Lovins provided intellectual DNA for the energy transition, notably with his concept of "soft energy" and how it promotes peace and prosperity. In recognition of this, he received the German Bundesverdienstkreuz 1. Klasse (Officer’s Cross of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany) on 17 March by the Federal Foreign Office. On the event we celebrated his achievements.
