The new EEG 2014 enters into force today, 1 August 2014. We have therefore updated our overview on the Renewable Energy Sources Act (Erneuerbare Energien Gesetz – EEG) in the light of the recent amendments.
It will be interesting to see how long it will take before we will see an EEG 2.1 “service update”, and how many further revisions we will have before the next big revision.
In any event, the Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy has also already put the “EEG 3.0” on its new 10-Point Energy Agenda, with work scheduled for January to July 2016.
For further background, you may also find my recent presentation “German Energiewende: Latest German Energiewende Developments & Some Recent European Aspects” interesting.
As always, we will try to keep you updated on further developments.
