Germany to Double Renewables
The German Environment Minister, Trittin, has proposed a plan to double the German supply of renewable energy by 2010, with a future aim of covering 50% of Germany’s energy consumption with renewables by 2050.
To achieve this, he proposes:
improvements of the German feed-in law for electricity from renewables to the electric grid,
an eco-tax reform,
more supportive regulation for cogeneration of heat and electricity, and
support for creation of markets for currently less competitive renewable-energy technologies (biogas, other biomass, geothermal, small hydro).
