Next government must put more effort into Energiewende - survey

Onshore Wind Energy Agency (FA Wind) / Forsa

Sixty-eight percent of Germans say that the future federal government should put more effort into implementing the Energiewende – with just 24 percent claiming the government should continue as before, according to a representative Forsa survey, commissioned by the non-profit association Onshore Wind Energy Agency (FA Wind). Eighty-three percent of respondents say that the use and expansion of onshore wind power is important or very important in light of the nuclear exit and the transition to renewable energies. Sixty percent agree with the statement that the debate about the implementation of the energy transition should not be dominated by discussions about power prices.
