Since 2012, Energlobe has been based in the center of Berlin with offices in the Haus der Bundespressekonferenz (The Federal Press Conference Building).
Energlobe was launched as as web magazine in Germany in 2010. Its goal: report on and analyze the radical restructuring of Germany’s energy economy then initially underway–the so-called Energiewende–in its internal complexity, its wider implications, and its connections with wider developments in the global energy economy and in global energy policy.
This approach led, in 2013, to a major redesign and relaunch of the Energlobe web portal. Since May, 2013, Energlobe has appeared as an international and German energy-magazine, featuring both international and German domestic themes and two front pages, one in English and one in German.
In May 2014, Energlobe–together with the Munich Security Conference (MSC), the Berthold Beitz Center of the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP), and the European Center for Energy and Resource Security EUCERS at King’s College London– helped initiate the European Energy Security Initiative (EESI), an international network of experts, institutions and businesses concerned with the issue of energy security in the geopolitical context(s) of the 21st century.
The international energy magazine ENERGLOBE/ Energy and Geopolitics has evolved out of Energlobe’s German-language web portal.
