Free Democratic Party

Freie Demokratische Partei

The Free Democrats are Germany's liberal, market-oriented party. Although the party was not elected to federal parliament in 2013 for the first time in post-war history, it still holds political sway, especially in some state politics. The FDP wants to integrate the increasing amount of renewable energy into a market-based system. They want more efforts in the area of energy efficiency. All-in-all, they would like to see a re-boot of the energy transition to make it cheaper and to bring it in sync with grid expansion.
