    Germany’s Energiewende seeks to replace the fossil fuel industry with sources of renewable energy. Major focal points of the effort are Munich, Stuttgart, and Berlin. Economic-scientific development clusters based on the principle that a strong government is superior to the free market and can surpass it, an idea that dates back to post 30 Years’ War (1618-1648) period and Baron von Pufendorf and the Der Große Kurfürst, provide a politically stable, institutionally proven, and enduring basis for coordinating the economy to achieve the goal of a fossil fuel free world. Germany’s system of state owned universities offer free education to doctorate level and allow it to maintain more than twice as many scientists per person as the United States facilitating the policy. During the rule of Kaiser Wilhelm II the military industrial and state R&D complex was forged, giving Germany a powerful institutional advantage at creating technology. During the Cold War this R&D apparatus substantially aided the U.S. military industrial complex; in fact German scientists brought created much of the U.S. military industrial complex. The Max Planck Society, the Helmholtz Association, the Fraunhofer Society, and the Leibniz Association are coordinating the effort through the relevant ministries. Solar, nuclear fusion, fuel cells, electric cars, batteries, photonics, laser-plasma manufacturing, and quantum computing are being pushed forward by state policy. Quantum cascade lasers, and 1 megawatt continuous pulse lasers, and solid-state lasers, photonics technologies that have multiple uses in warfare, fusion research, and manufacturing of batteries are being pushed forward too. Over the next 15 years the fossil fuel industry will face extreme losses of market share and profit.
