German coalition deal caps renewables growth

The final agreement between the CDU and SPD caps growth to keep costs manageable, with a 40-45% target for the share for power production for 2025

The final agreement between Germany’s new coalition partners caps renewable energy growth to keep costs manageable, with a 40-45% target for the share for electricity production for 2025, increasing to 55-60% for 2035.

The situation will be reviewed annually to check Germany is on track to meet these targets, and ensure they remain affordable and match network capacity. Germany’s current targets are for at least 35% renewables by 2020 and 50% by 2030.
