Germany’s Renewable Energy Sources Act 2021 – What’s New?

Dates:
  • Thu 21 Jan 2021 10.30 - 12.00
  Add to Calendar 2021-01-21 10:30 2021-01-21 12:00 Europe/Paris Germany’s Renewable Energy Sources Act 2021 – What’s New?

In 2000, Germany introduced the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) to encourage the generation of renewable electricity, initially via a feed-in tariff scheme. Over the course of the past two decades, various editions of the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG), have played a central role in the development of renewables, especially the growth of onshore wind and solar PV. The latest reformed version of the act came into effect on 1 January 2021, and contains important economic and legal innovations.

In this webinar, we will critically examine these new terms, consider the implications of these amendments, and consider if the reform of the EU state aid guidelines alongside the new EEG may impact the development of state aid for RES in Europe.

In the past, many Member State have taken their lead from Germany when it comes to supporting RES. Will Member States still be keen to follow Germany’s example with the EEG 2021?

We will welcome your questions throughout the session, and look forward to what we hope will be a lively debate. To join the session, please register through the form above.
