During 2004–08, Germany’s electricity generation increased at a low CAGR of 0.7% largely due to adoption of energy efficiency measures with the aim to reduce growth in demand. Germany’s energy policy is governed by the strategy to reduce dependence on imports of fossil fuels, while simultaneously switching to renewable and clean energy technologies. With the introduction of feed-in tariffs under the EEG in 2000, renewable energy technologies experienced strong growth. In order to meet the emission reduction target laid out in the EU directive, Germany adopted its own national climate action plan. At present, German government incentives and mandates are the main drivers of renewable energy in Germany. ( http://www.bharatbook.com/

Key Market Issues
• EU Emission Reduction Targets: Historically, the EU’s emission reduction targets are the primary drivers for implementation of policies that encouraged usage of renewable energy in the EU member states. The EU’s directive on reducing GHG emissions through increased usage of renewable energy is expected to be met at individual country-level through their own policies.
• Renewable Energy Incentives and Mandates: In order to meet the emission reduction target laid out in the EU directive, Germany adopted its own national climate action plan. The EEG enacted in 2000 regularly monitors and adjusts the tariffs to suit market conditions and technological developments.
• Energy Security: Germany is increasingly substituting its fuel-based power generation with domestically-
Key findings from this report
• In 2008, Germany’s electricity generation totaled 612.8TWh, an increase of 0.3% over 2007. During 2004–08, Germany’s electricity generation increased at a low CAGR of 0.7% largely due to adoption of energy efficiency measures with the aim to reduce growth in demand.
• Contribution of fossil-fuel based generation to the total electricity generation in Germany reduced from 90.3% in 2004 to 84.9% in 2008, while share of renewables increased from 9.7% in 2004 to 15.1% in 2008. Germany’s increased preference for renewables is driven by the need to replace fossil fuels while countering climate change.
• Installed capacity for electricity generation from renewable sources increased from 4,651MW in 1990 to 37,406MW in 2008 largely led by phenomenal growth in wind energy capacity from 56MW in 1990 to 23,895MW in 2008.
Key questions answered
• What are the drivers shaping and influencing new capacity installed in the energy industry?
• How will renewable energy technologies capacity share perform to 2050? What are the opportunities?
• What are the forecast market growth rates 2008-2050?
• What is the policy framework governing the renewable energy market?
