The switch towards E-mobility in Germany allows for an additional PV and wind capacity addition of 63 GW, as well as an emission reduction in the private transport sector and the power generation by 70 percent.
A new White Paper of Energy Brainpool deals with the effects of a price floor for CO2-emissions in Germany. The conclusion of the Berlin-based analysts: A price increase from about 5 to 27.6 €/ton as assumed by the World Energy Outlook is not sufficient to achieve the German climate targets for 2030. A national price floor is able to alleviate that problem in Germany, is however not an efficient instrument in a European context.
