Legislation must unleash digitalisation for energy transition and climate protection

Stiftung Neue Verantwortung (SNV)

A technology think-tank is calling for an overhaul of legislation, to unlock the huge potential of digitalisation to catapult Germany’s energy transition to a new level. A paper by Stiftung Neue Verantwortung (SNV) says digital solutions can make the Energiewende much cheaper and advance climate protection. This requires liberalisation of tightly regulated energy markets in order to make the system more flexible and increase incentives to reduce CO2 emissions, its author Fabian Reetz argues.
