Frankfurt, November 25 (IANS) Germany’s next government must double its efforts to enact a major energy roadmap, or risk renewable tariffs, said industrial groups in the country on Thursday.

In the wake of the recent slowdown in the growth of renewable factories in Europe’s major economies, utility and industry associations’ comments highlight the need to reduce red tape and create better investment opportunities.

Coalition parties A.D. They unveiled a plan to release coal on 2030, not 2030, and significantly accelerate the supply of renewable energy to meet 80% of the growing energy demand. Read more

Last year, coal accounted for 27 percent, while renewables stood at 45.5%.

Cristin Andrea, head of the BDEW Consumer Electronics Association, which represents energy companies, including EONGn.DE, RWE (RWEG.DE), said: UN01.DE).

According to Andrea, the government’s biggest plan is to install 100-130 gigabytes of wind turbines or 25-38 turbines per week by 2030.

By 2020, there were an average of eight turbines per week.

To fix the blockade, Germany wants to apply 2% of the land to wind power by applying simple approvals, and to increase the photovoltaic capacity by three times more than 200 GW for each roof for solar panels.

Offshore wind power capacity is now projected to reach 30 GW by 2030, which is 10 GW more than planned.

“Now is the time to implement the plans quickly and create the conditions for private investment,” said Christian Brich, CEO of Siemens Energy (ENR1n.DE). “We don’t have time to lose.”

The coalition expects to meet 680-750 terawatts per year by 2030 due to the green energy needed to produce hydrogen from wind and solar power through digitization, electric car demand and electrolysis.

The new target is about a third higher than expected by 2021.

Gas and Water Association welcomes plans to increase hydrogen electrolysis to 10 GW by 2030, but emphasizes that only 20% of Germany’s main power is electricity.

The remaining 80% of coal, oil and gas are used to power industrial processes, transportation and heating buildings.

“The lion’s share has not been returned,” said Gerald Link, head of DVGW.

The deal calls for the immediate replacement of new gas-to-hydropower plants, hydrogen-ready, nuclear and coal-fired power plants, and the introduction of green hydrogen into fossil fuels.

Link says the gas industry needs to be certified to transport hydrogen gas to hydrogen, hydrogen imports, and carbon emissions.

“If we don’t work in these areas, the collective agreement is huge,” he said.
