Energiaklub is twenty-five years old!

We have been working for twenty-five years towards a climate- and people-friendly, green and democratic energy system in Hungary.

Twenty-five years is a long time. We saw prime ministers and state secretaries coming and going, policies changing, and civil society organizations collapsing. We are proud that despite all the struggles, we have constantly been able to operate with a solid staff.

We have achieved a lot during these twenty-five years, however, we still have dreams to fulfill. We are now celebrating the success of the last 25 years with our partners and friends, and ask for their support for the next 25 years.

We are having our 25th Birthday-Party  in the Marionett Craft Beer House on December 2nd at 6.30 pm. Please join us, let's celebrate together!

Alternative and Sustainable Energy Scenarios for Hungary

We do not need nuclear power to secure Hungary's future energy needs. 50% of the total primary energy use, and more than 80% of the produced electricity could be provided by renewable sources, while keeping safety of energy supply. That was the result of the recently published energy modelling research of the German Wuppertal Institut and Energiaklub. Following the GREEN scenario would be not only beneficiary from climate and energy security aspects, but also from economical aspects since...
