    Wind Energy - BWE, The federal government must finally make climate protection policy concrete

    August 7, 2020 - ENP Newswire


      Hermann Albers, President of the Federal Wind Energy Association, explains the current statements in the area of climate protection by Federal Minister of Economics Peter Altmaier: 'It is a first step when the Federal Minister of Economics now admits negligence and at the same time announces that the path to climate neutrality will be irreversible.

      However, now there is no need for new announcements, plans or key points, but actions. We now need a draft law that implements the BMWi's October 2019 task list 'Wind on Land'. The 18-point plan has been almost untouched for almost a year and is waiting to be implemented! The goal of the coalition agreement 65 percent renewable energies by 2030 - can only be achieved with a verifiable time and quantity framework for the expansion of renewable energies. The topic of repowering must also be here Get more weight with your own strategy: The framework for the continued operation of existing systems must also be on the agenda, 'says Hermann Albers, President of the German Wind Energy Association.

      In times of Corona, the wind industry has shown what a large part of the German electricity mix it can make. On land and at sea, however, the expansion has lost momentum.

      'To quickly return to a highly dynamic expansion path will be essential in order to meet the growing demand for CO2- free energy. The electricity quantity target specified by the federal government is unsuitable and leads directly to a current gap! The assumption of 580 TWh in 2030 is at least negligent, but certainly harmful to the climate. At BWE, we see 740 TWh as a realistic size. Especially with regard to the planned production of green hydrogen by wind energy - for example for a CO2-neutral steel industry - the assumed reduction in electricity consumption is incomprehensible.

      The topics are clearly described: Remove barriers to approval. Provide space. Submit repowering strategy. Now templates and decisions are needed! The federal government must be the helmsman who sets the course for the energy transition. At the moment, however, it feels as if the industry is cushioning the non-existent course of politics as best it can, 'said Hermann Albers.
