Possible Timetable for Speedy Reform of Renewables Law

When presenting their coalition agreement in November 2013, the new grand coalition government of Conservatives (CDU/CSU) and Social Democrats (SPD) announced to present a reform of the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) by Easter 2014. Based on statements by prominent members of the coalition parties, the newspaper Rheinische Post published an ambitious timetable for the EEG reform.

Possible timetable for EEG reform:

  • 22/23 January 2014: presentation of key points of reform
    at a meeting of the cabinet in Meseberg, Brandenburg;
  • Before Easter 2014: bill shall be submitted to
    cabinet;
  • 26/27 June 2014: bill shall be
    approved by Bundestag (Parliament);
  • 11 July 2014: bill shall be approved by Bundesrat (Federal Council, i.e.
    the body that represents the interests of the sixteen German states
    on the federal level).
