“Energy” in the University magazine

We are using up more and more energy. But where it is supposed to come from? The latest number of our University magazine, HSG Focus, shows perspectives on present and future energy issues.

Solutions right under our nose

Whether the UN climate summit in Paris will be a success or not is an open question for HSG Professor Rolf Wüstenhagen. What is certain is that climate change is still an urgent problem. And: the solution will be provided by the implementation of energy efficiency, renewable energy and sustainable mobility on the ground.

At a recent conference at the University of St. Gallen, experts gathered to discuss finance, capital reallocation and growth. Christian Keuschnigg specifically focused on the development of a European Capital Markets Union.
