The Environment Committee of the German Bundestag (Parliament) followed a government decision of late August and approved an ordinance that cuts the management premium pursuant the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) for solar and wind power as of 1 January 2013.
For further information on the ordinance, which still has to be adopted by Parliament, please see the related posts.
Criticism came from the Federal Association of the Energy and Water Industry (BDEW). It welcomed that the cuts for remote-controlled wind and solar power plants shall be lower, but said the technical requirement laid down in the ordinance could partly not be fulfilled given the current technology.
