The expansion of renewable energy is one of the main pillars in Germany's energy transition. Germany's energy supply is becoming "greener" from year to year because it is becoming more climate-friendly - and making us less dependent on the world's diminishing reserves of fossil fuels. With the amended Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG), solar, wind and bioenergy and other renewable energies will be integrated even better into the market and systematically expanded whilst the cost dynamics are noticeably slowed.
