German governing coalition parties have reached an agreement to send an additional 4 GW of onshore wind and solar capacity to tender over the coming years – with a special tender for 1 GW next year, 1.4 GW in 2020 as well as 1.6 GW in 2021. This will play a role in Germany coming closer to reaching its renewable energy target for 2030. Politicians have already acknowledged that the 2020 target cannot be achieved.
"A fine, comprehensive package has been assembled. Aside from the special tenders for solar and wind, an agreement has also been reached concerning an inter-technological innovation tender," says Carsten Linnemann, vice chair of the federal parliamentary group of the Christian Democratic Party (CDU) as well as the Christian Social Union in Bavaria (CSU).
