Development of renewables in Germany (electricity) Development of electricity generation from renewable energy sources in Germany 120,000 Hydropower Wind energy EEG: January 2009 Biomass * Photovoltaics 100,000 EEG: August 2004 EEG: 80,000 April 2000[GWh] 60,000 Amendment to BauGB: November 1997 StromEinspG: 40,000 January 1991 - March 2000 20,000 0 1990 1991 1992 1993 1994 1995 1996 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 * Solid and liquid biomass, biogas, sewage and landfill gas, biogenic share of waste; electricity from geothermal energy not presented due to negligible quantities produced; 1 GWh = 1 Mill. kWh; StromEinspG: Act on the Sale of Electricity to the Grid; BauGB: Construction Code; EEG: Renewable Energy Sources Act; Source: BMU-KI III 1 according to Working Group on Renewable Energy Sources-Statistics (AGEE-Stat); image: BMU / Christoph Edelhoff; as at: March 2011; all figures provisional 4
  • 5. Amendment to the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) 2012Guidelines Continuation of the dynamic expansion of renewable energies in the electricity sector Continuation of the tried-and-tested approach of the EEG, particularly the principle of priority feed-in Market integration, e. g. with introduction of new incentives such as the market and flexibility premium Cost efficiency, e. g. by adjustment of tariffs 5
  • 6. Germany’s Energy Research ProgrammeSupport of energy research is an important part ofenergy policy in order to meet the growing energy andclimate policy challengesFocus on renewable energies and energy efficiencyas well as storage and grid technologiesAllocated budget amounts to 3.5 bn Euro until 2014,incl. 1.3 bn Euro for research in the field of renewablesSupport of applied research in the field of renewablesto advance RE technologies as well as system and gridintegration of renewables 6
  • 7. Transformation of energy system as opportunityGlobal market for green technologies is large andexpanding, especially for renewablesMarkets for renewables developed despite financial andeconomic crisisFramework conditions for renewables are crucial, suchas advancing and supporting technological progress,ensuring a stabile investment and financing environmentBenefits are- creating and securing jobs- maintaining competitiveness- safeguarding the climate protection target 7
  • 8. German perception of Turkish RE issuesTurkey has a considerable economic and technicalpotential (not only in hydropower, but also in windenergy, solar power, geothermal power and biomass)Adoption of new feed-in tariffs and attractive supportmechanisms in order to tap this potential beyondhydropowerTurkey is among the global leaders in solar thermalenergyGerman-Turkish cooperation for exchange of experienceand further expansion of renewable energies 8
  • 9. German-Turkish cooperation in the field of renewable energiesExample policy dialogue Multi-year project to develop the feed-in tariff system in Turkey Partners: GIZ and Turkish Energy Ministry German-Turkish Energy Forum with six working groups, one on REExample training and capacity building Project to tap Turkish biogas potential focuses on the construction of a pilot plant and includes a range of training activities Partners: GIZ and Turkish Environment MinistryExample cooperation between companies Construction of a 50 megawatt wind park on Cesme peninsular 9
