Preserving diversity of actors in Energiewende

German Cities Council

The reform of the Renewable Energy Act, which includes the introduction of tenders for renewables, is a challenge for all Energiewende players - but especially for citizens, according to a new brochure by the German Cities Council, local utilities association VKU, the Renewable Energies Agency AEE, and others. The cooperation with partners becomes increasingly important if citizens want to remain part of the energy transition, and the brochure lists many examples, according to a press release.

For background on the effect of the reform on citizens energy, read the new CLEW dossier The reform of the Renewable Energy Act.
