“Bundesrat passes digitalisation law”
The passing of a new law on the “Digitalisation of the Energiewende” in the second house of the German parliament, the Bundesrat, has been overshadowed by the vote on the reform of the Renewable Energy Act (EEG), according to an article in pv magazine. Among other things, the law regulates the introduction of smart meters and a cap on their installation costs. The Bundesrat also warned of “unreasonable costs for consumers, producers, smart meter operators, as well as grid operators” and called for a regular cost-benefit analysis after the enactment of the law, writes pv magazine.
