“The Energiewende: our success story”

Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy

The German Energiewende is "no project for the distant future", but has already been successfully put into action over the past years, writes the federal government in the new brochure “The Energiewende: our success story”. The 20-page booklet – delivered with today’s newspapers – lists and explains several reasons why the country’s generational project was already a success, such as: “…because it is sustainable and safe”, “…because it is affordable and plannable” and “…because it is efficient”. In the brochure, the federal government takes a positive look back on its policy actions during the current legislative period that will end with the federal elections in September.
