Energy transition: FDP: gone with the EEG, because Renewable competition are already capable of

In the debate about the future of the Renewable energy sources act (EEG) has reported now the FDP and a position paper written. It is decided by the group in the Bundestag this Wednesday and the F. A. Z. is. The liberals choose to do this, the energy transition in the future "consistently, open to new technology and across sectors on the reduction of CO2 emissions" to align. As in the whole of Europe, the EU should be extended emissions trading to all sectors.

F. A. Z.

the Federal government issued the expansion target for renewable energy sources, with the Coal phase-the rate of 65 per cent in the electricity mix is written in the year 2030, for the first time in law – to reject the liberals. You expect that Germany, which imports around 70 percent of its energy needs, will also provide in the future, with Renewable alone national complete.

Required of the green energy expansion is therefore there, where it was on the cheap, and socially accepted. To do this, there is a need for "a co-ordinated European strategy for the Import of renewable energy sources in the Form of climate-neutral gases and fuels", as stated in the paper, the spring was the leader of the deputies Sandra Accuphase written.

The promotion of green electricity according to the EEG, wants to abolish the FDP for new installations. 20 years after its launch it was "time for a paradigm shift and an exit from the duration of the subsidy". While the billions in subsidies the EEG at the expense of the German power would have helped the customer "a significant contribution to the considerable cost degression of Renewable". But announced now, more and more providers, non-subsidized projects such as solar farms, thus demonstrating that the Wind and the sun "for a long time of competition, are capable of".

guaranteed acceptance prices, it no longer needs, according to the FDP, because of a rising CO2 price will make fossil energy more unattractive and cause the green power development successes more demand-driven. The liberals support alternative forms of Marketing such as PPA-called long-term supply contracts, to simplify the self-supply of green electricity and the EEG-eliminate levy for all consumers by the funding commitments will be financed from the past step out of the revenues of the new CO2-tax on the Federal budget. This new tax starts at 1. January 2021 and increases the price of fossil fuels such as heating oil and gasoline.

Meanwhile, the recent price increase in the European trade with CO2-certificates that was 2005eingeführt to the ears of let.Due to the very low prices he had for a long time in a difficult position, but not only with the discussion of the "Green Deal" is the basically the Central climate protection instrument of the EU an increasing focus of attention. After the price had settled down in front of the Corona-crisis at around 25 euros, he was flying in mid-March, down Gera to 15 euros – before he had recovered in the last few weeks quickly and last week back to the pre-crisis level of 25 Euro cent. At the beginning of this week, even up to just under 27 euros.
