Germany's renewable energy sector is among the most innovative and successful worldwide. Over the past decade, Germany has emerged as a global energy leader. It currently generates one quarter of its energy from clean power sources.  What steps has Germany taken to emerge as "the world's first major renewable energy economy?" And how can the United States use Germany as a best practices model?

To answer these questions and more, CPCC will host Brigitte Hartenstein, CFO of STAEG Energy Services, a German company located in Kings Mountain, North Carolina.

During her presenation, Ms. Hartenstein will discuss:
- how Germany has been able to transition to renewable energy so quickly.
- the future of sustainable energy in the United States

Individuals interested in sustainable energy, worldwide trends in the energy sector and international business would benefit from this presentation.
