The targets of the new climate protection law are ambitious. For example, CO2-emissions from the energy industry must fall to 108 in 2030 instead of 175 million metric tons (Mt) as previously planned. Energy Brainpool’s latest modelling shows that such a reduction can only be achieved with an early coal phase-out. In this article, we take you through the key findings of the calculations.
By the end of 2020, the Spanish government approved the reformation of its renewable energy (RE) auctions. More precisely they did that in order to support the achievement of their RE targets outlined in its National Energy and Climate Plan (PNIEC 2030). In this blogpost, we will discuss the consequences.
In a new study commissioned by EWS Elektrizitätswerke Schönau eG, we have investigated how fully exploiting the potential for adding small-scale PV systems by 2030 would affect climate targets and the power market. How large is this potential? What measures need to be added to the current EEG Amendment in order to exploit this potential? Read more about it in this blog post.
The diversity of contractual structures of Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) and the resulting lack of useful indices makes it difficult to correctly assess offered PPA prices. What is a good PPA price and what are the means to exploit the potential of price and volume regulation? More on this in our blog post.
