This report summarises the learnings from the study trips to industrial areas of France,
Germany and Italy, experienced by a group of twelve students and young professionals, called
the Youth for Energy Futures Programme. Through these study trips, we explored the local
(lack of) implementation of what is commonly called the “energy transition”. These industrial
areas were taken as a focus because they are very energy intensive, which means that the
transformation to a clean and sufficient energy system seems even bigger and more complex.
