“Climate targets in danger”

Frankfurter Rundschau

The cap of solar PV and wind power development established with the reform of the Renewable Energy Act (EEG) passed in parliament last week could endanger Germany’s climate targets, said Maria Krautzberger, president of the Federal Environment Agency (UBA). It was “now crucial that the auctioned capacities are actually built to guarantee a relevant climate protection contribution”, said Krautzberger, according to an article in Frankfurter Rundschau.
