Enthusiasts: Federal Environment Agency calls for faster expansion of wind power

 federal states cancel resistance to relief package to Berlin. There are continuing resistance in the federal states against the third relief package of the traffic light coalition. Above all, there is a lack of a lack of coordination by the federal government with the countries in the financing of the individual relief measures. © Monika Skolimowska euro notes on a table (symbol image). "In the current form, the relief package is by no means approval," said Bavaria's Prime Minister Markus Söder of "Welt am Sonntag".

The Federal Environment Agency (UBA) has called for a stronger expansion of renewable energies in Germany. According to preliminary data from the environmental authority, about nine percent more electricity from renewable sources were generated in 2022 than in the previous year, but this proportion was still under the goal set in the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG). According to the UBA, the total gross electricity generation from renewable energies will be around 256 terawatt hours (TWH) this year - less than the target of 269 terawatt hours.

to cover 80 percent of German gross current consumption with renewable electricity in 2030, a volume of around 600 terawatt hours is required. This means that the green electricity generation has to double more than in the next eight years.

"Although the expansion goals for photovoltaics and wind energy on land from EEG 2021 were reached for 2022," said Dirk Messner, President of the Federal Environment Agency, on Monday. "However, reaching this first, rather moderately ambitious intermediate steps, cannot be seen as a great success." Now, in particular when expanding wind energy, it is important to set all possible levers in motion in order to accelerate the expansion. According to the UBA,

's main pillars of renewable electricity production were photovoltaics and wind energy this year: According to this, electricity generation from photovoltaic systems increased significantly to 61 TWH due to the very sunny weather. The power generation made of wind energy was also 12 percent higher at 128 TWH than in the wind arm in the previous year.

In the heat sector, the consumption of renewable energy increased by about 1 percent compared to the previous year. In traffic, renewable electricity with an increase of 15 percent was used this year significantly more than 2021. According to the UBA, the numbers are an initial estimate based on current data - especially in the areas of heat and traffic, these are still with great uncertainties.
