German Renewable Policies Retain Government Backing

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Despite Germany’s changing political landscape, interest remains strong in its government to support the country’s renewable energy policies. According to RE Power, a German wind turbine manufacturer, the new Federal Environment Minister, Sigmar Gabriel (SPD), intends to push for the expansion of renewable energies and the move away from oil in Germany. Furthermore, the grand coalition will adhere to the Renewable Energies Act (Erneuerbare-Energien-Gesetz — EEG), said Gabriel during a recent international energy conference in Bonn, as reported by Handelsblatt. The use of alternative energy sources such as solar and wind power was essential to ensure future energy provision, Gabriel continued, going on to say that the coalition will not be interfering with the guaranteed network access and fixed feed-in tariffs for solar and wind energy. To date, Gabriel said this policy had been a “real success story.”
