This book is the result of a collaboration between the Institute for Climate Protection, Energy and Mobility (IKEM) and Ellery Studio that began in the summer of 2017. During a six-month long process IKEM and Ellery plowed through stacks of white papers and reports. We worked with a crack team of researchers, visual artists, and designers to distill technical information on energy policy and subsidies into the fun and accessible illustrations that appear in this book. IKEM brought in a team with a great deal of scientific expertise and Ellery translated their research into visuals that can be easily understood and engaged with.
Quirky and Educational
In addition to providing a fun and meditative activity, this book also teaches you actionable steps to cool down our planet and live sustainably. From the dynamics of solar panels to the nitty gritty of the Paris Agreement, this book is chock-full of factoids and helpful tips.
A book with impact
The first edition of the book won international acclaim for its innovative colorable infographics and received
letters of praise from world leaders like French President Emmanuel Macron, Canadian Prime Minister Justin
Trudeau, and Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen. Our team even met Chancellor Angela Merkel in person
to provide a visual breakdown of Germany’s energy transition!
