Free Democrats decide election campaign programme


The German Free Democratic Party (FDP) approved its election campaign programme at a federal party conference. The FDP wants to “end the sustained subsidies system of the EEG [Renewable Energy Act]” with its priority grid access and feed-in tariffs for renewables. Clean Energy Wire reported on the draft earlier this year; there are no changes to the main provisions.
