Germany is pinning its hopes on the sun, wind and water – and therefore on climate protection, security of supply and regional added value. The energy policy strategy of the Federal Government is focused, amongst other things, on the systematic expansion of renewable energies. Because renewable energies do not run out and will therefore play a leading role in the energy mix of the future.
There are already signs of growth: wind energy has increased strongly and in the future it will primarily focus on offshore expansion. The German solar industry is a global leader and the German biogas industry is a pioneer in the production and utilisation of biogas. The word is out on Germany’s know-how: in an international comparison “renewables – Made in Germany” is a world leader.
Renewables are getting involved in the energy mix
dena is standing up for all renewables: with the “Renewable Energies Export Initiative” it is helping German companies to enter interesting export markets. In its Solar Roofs Programme, it combines the installation of solar roof systems on representative facilities abroad with high publicity marketing, PR and training programmes. With its biogas register, dena supports trading in biomethane across Germany. And with its Grid Studies I and II, it demonstrates manageable ways to integrate renewables into German electricity supply.
