Green electricity: more room for wind energy

Wind energy and photovoltaics are to be massively expanded. It was decided by the Bundestag and the Bundesrat. The “Easter package” on green electricity has already been sanctioned by law.

Thanks to the Easter package, which has already become the law, the share of green electricity in Germany is to increase to 80%. by 2030.

The Bundestag and the Bundesrat have set themselves ambitious goals: a legislative package for faster development of green electricity generation from wind and solar. The goal is to increase the share of renewable energy in electricity produced in Germany to at least 80 percent by 2030. Currently, it is less than 50 percent. According to the Minister of Economy and Climate Protection, Robert Habeck (the Greens), this is the largest energy package in years, if not decades. Criticizing from the Union that it has a fair weather policy, Habeck replied: “If we had gone through these packages ten years ago, we would have been very different from today.”

How should the development of green electricity be promoted?

A decisive step towards the envisaged green electricity target is the commitment that renewables are of overriding public interest and officially serve public safety. This can be a key lever in accelerating planning and approval procedures and shortening court proceedings.
