German coalition government blueprint aims for higher renewable quota



By Reuters

Petroleumworld 01 15 2018

A blueprint for talks on Germany's next coalition government circulated on Friday spelled out measures to achieve a renewable quota of 65 percent in the power mix by 2030.

* Negotiators said they plan tenders for 4 gigawatts (GW) of photovoltaics and 4 GW onshore wind as well as an unspecified offshore wind energy contribution for 2019 and 2020

* This will help achieve targeted annual carbon emissions savings of 8 to 10 million tonnes by 2020

* Implementation depends on whether power transmission networks can be bumped up in time, a goal that both the conservatives and the Social Democrats say they want to achieve

* They want to support energy storage measures to help surplus renewable power applications in new areas

* Say they want to modernise power and heat generation, a process that is environmentally friendly as it captures heat from burning fuels for electricity

* A law to achieve climate goals, not just in energy, but also in building and transport, is to be implemented in 2019

* Energy industry group BDEW lamented the lack of enough support for new technology, which could speed efforts to cut emissions from heat and transport, as well as the decision to drop plans for energy tax cuts for consumers
