German market outlook: Infinite energy in a finite space? Finding new sites and reusing existing ones

Policy & markets

When: Tuesday, 25 September 2018, 17:00 - 18:00
Where: Room: Brussels

Session description

As an early mover in developing wind energy, Germany is now the first to face significant challenges regarding the scarcity of available space. As ambitions for the build-out of renewable energies are rising, space has to be used as efficiently as possible. Thisconcerns end-of-life issues for older turbines such as repowering and decommissioning, as well as the development of new projects under current licensing conditions and with regard to public acceptance. What are the answers? More offshore wind? Less regulation? More projects in areas with poorer wind conditions? Ever larger turbines? How can a stable market be maintained under these conditions?
