Reformed: Renewable Energy Act

Renewable energies have in the meantime been developed to the point where, in the next step, they must be integrated into a future energy market. In the opinion of the ZVEI, this requires a fundamental reform of the Renewable Energies Act.

The ZVEI proposes the reform of the Renewable Energies Act and the integration of renewable energies into the future energy market.

Der ZVEI regt an, das EEG zu reformieren und die erneuerbaren Energien in den zukünftigen Energiemarkt zu integrieren.

As of 1 January 2017, the amended Renewable Energy Act entered into force. Thus, from ZVEI´s perspective, the right course for the promotion of renewable energies has been set.

The EEG reform in 2014 laid the foundations for a planned expansion of renewable energies. The EEG 2017, on the other hand, focuses on competition in order to maintain the diversity of actors in the energy market. ZVEI assesses the EEG adopted on 8 July 2016 positively and supports the fact that promotion of renewable energies is determined by calls for tenders.

The EEG amendment aims to increase the share of renewables in today's energy consumption by more than 33 per cent by 2025 to 45 per cent. From ZVEI´s viewpoint, important issues such as the embedding in a higher-level electricity market design, network, and storage expansion as well as sector coupling should not be neglected.

The ZVEI proposes to

 

  • further the embedding into higher-level electricity marketing design,
  • synchronise the expansion of renewable energies with grid andstorage expansion,
  • promote sector coupling,
  • strengthen the protection of confidence in selfproduction.
