  • 1. Friedemann Kraft Botschaft derCounselor for Environment Bundesrepublik Deutschland WarschauGerman Embassy Warsaw - Germanys Climate and Energy Policy - Challenges and Opportunities for Cooperation with Poland 11th September 2012
  • 2. Botschaft derContents Bundesrepublik Deutschland Warschau Germany’s Climate and Energy Policy EU Context Polish-German cooperation 2
  • 3. Botschaft derSome notes upfront … Bundesrepublik Deutschland Warschau In many ways, Poland and Germany face similar challenges, e.g. with regard to  meeting our global responsibility for climate protection  maintaining global competitiveness Due to different starting points: different approaches on how to deal with these challenges. Yet our energy systems are technically and economically interlinked  need for common steps, cooperation and coordination 3
  • 4. Introduction: Rationale of the German Botschaft der Bundesrepublik Deutschland WarschauEnergy Concept IPCC: Emissions reduction requirement for industrialized countries until 2050 - 80 – 95%, decarbonisation of energy sector is key Energy Concept of 28 September 2010: Defining our Climate and Energy policy for beyond 2020 After Fukushima – Germany no longer views nuclear power as a bridging technology - high risk - unforeseeable costs Decisions of 6 June 2011: – Phasing-out of nuclear energy by 2022 – Accelerating transformation of energy system, comprehensive legislative package 4
  • 5. The economic rationale of the Botschaft der Bundesrepublik Deutschland WarschauGerman Energy Concept■ Increasing energy efficiency improves the competitiveness of the economy.■ Developing new energy technologies and systems drives innovation and employment in the field of high-technology.■ RES and energy efficiency are lead markets of the future; pioneering in this field can contribute to maintaining technology leadership.■ Energy efficiency and RES reduce vulnerability to volatile energy prices and dependency on energy imports.■ Long term: cost efficient energy system.
  • 6. Botschaft derMain tasks of energy and climate policy Bundesrepublik Deutschland Warschau 1. Improving energy efficiency 2. Expanding the 3. Expanding grid use of renewable infrastructure and back-up energies capacity 6
  • 7. Botschaft derGoals of energy and climate policy Bundesrepublik Deutschland Warschau 7
  • 8. Botschaft der Bundesrepublik DeutschlandWhere are we today? Warschau  Share of renewable energies in electricity supply: increase from around 6 to 20% in 12 years  Newly installed capacity – onshore wind power: more than 2,000 MW in 2011 (total: 29 GW) – PV: 7.500 MW in 2011 (total: 25 GW)  Renewable sources have become second-largest source for electricity generation in Germany (surpassing gas, hard coal and nuclear power)  Greenhouse gas emissions are 25% below 1990 levels, outperforming national Kyoto Target 8

  • 11. Botschaft der Bundesrepublik DeutschlandChallenges WarschauTransforming Germany‘s energy system has just begun Enhance energy efficiency (cheapest option) Keep RES costs to an acceptable level Market integration of renewable energies (new Market Premium) Expansion of electricity grid Demand side management - Smart meter Storage Key: system integration and costs 11
  • 12. Implications for cross-border Botschaft der Bundesrepublik Deutschland WarschaucooperationTransforming Germany‘s energy system calls for intensified cooperation and coordination Renewables generation in Germany is being balanced in the European grid Flows lead to challenges for grid stability – need for action – within Germany (new north/south lines) – across borders (developing an efficient and modern European grid with an increased capacity) On the other hand, RES generation in Germany – contributes to energy security across Europe – supports innovation and reduces technology costs Enormous economic opportunities for cooperation 12
  • 13. Botschaft derChallenges at the EU level Bundesrepublik Deutschland Warschau German/Polish energy transformation needs to be embedded in an EU framework: – setting reliable long-term framework conditions for reducing emissions by 80-95% by 2050 – enhancing coordination and convergence of energy policies – identifying overlaps and possible common steps needed for all MS Importance of EU Climate and Energy Roadmaps  Long-term guidance and planning reliability Further development of EU climate and energy policy - The future of the ETS - EU framework for RES support scheme - Energy Efficiency 13
  • 14. Opportunities for Polish/German Botschaft der Bundesrepublik Deutschland WarschauCooperationClose bilateral cooperation- Modernizing energy system- Support for RES- Increasing energy efficiency- Expansion of cross-border grid- Innovation and technology (system integration, storage) 14
  • 15. Ways of cooperation: Climate and Botschaft der Bundesrepublik Deutschland WarschauEnergy Dialogue April 2011: Agreement between the Ministers for Environment that a forum is needed to – intensify Polish-German dialogue on climate and energy issues – understand the respective approaches, goals and challenges – develop joint strategies Launched on 31 August 2011 in Warsaw Bilateral Environmental Council: 11-12 October 2012 Workshop on Energy Efficiency, organized by the Polish Ministry of Economy and the German Environment Ministry: 15.
