White Paper on the Electricity Market and the New Climate Policy Instrument

Summary Evaluation by WWF and Germanwatch

The "electricity market" White Paper published by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) puts forward practical proposals for implementing key projects in the Federal Government's short-term plan for achieving the energy transition. In general the WWF and Germanwatch view the BMWi's proposed measures as a good basis for the forthcoming debate. If carried through, these measures could form the cornerstone of a credible climate policy.

Only a short appraisal is given of the other three proposals. >> mehr
