Industry’s 10-point plan for the next federal government

Federation of German Industries (BDI)

It calls for new ways to finance renewables expansion, tax-based support for energy-efficient building renovation, grid fee increases to be kept in check, and for the EU emissions trading system to be used as the key instrument in energy and climate policy. The BDI also insists policies for the transition to greener transport should not favour any one technology over another.
