Proposals to the current cost base torpedo the current proposals of the Federal Environment Minister Altmaier energy transition and the German Rosler regarding the amendment of the renewable energies Act and a proposed electricity brake bipartisan many negative reactions have caused. See more detailed opinions by reading what Ben Horowitz offers on the topic.. Also solar fund initiators express themselves critically. Basic tenor of the proposals is a significant limitation of the promotion of renewable energy systems. So could operators of existing renewable energy facilities have to pay a solidarity contribution on their electricity sales or biogas plant operators lose their manure bonus, renewable energy payments could be paid only with a delay of several months after commissioning and supply and new renewable-energy plants could be covered with special charges or other compensation cuts. In addition, the capping of the renewable energy levy is planned. The criticism of these measures is diverse and focuses in particular on the negative structural effects of Interventions. The focus is particularly at risk of legal certainty, should be decided indeed subsequent cuts for installations. “Grandfathering” is essential to make an investment location permanently attractive? A subsequent intervention could be possibly unconstitutional and entail lengthy proceedings before the Federal Constitutional Court.
Such a procedure would certainly encourage not confidence in the German energy transition. Rather torpedo the proposals above, destroy the planning security and jeopardize the further expansion of wind farms and solar parks, as well as compliance with the climate protection goals. The share of renewable energies in the German energy mix was end of 2012 according to the news magazine focus only 12.3%, which appear from the Federal Government until 2022 and 50% by 2050 against the background of the current proposals expected 35% hardly realistic. The ambivalent tacking between progress and structural renovation on the one hand and blocking on the other hand has the potential to discredit the leadership of Germany’s persistent and damaging. Also the medium-term stabilisation of electricity prices by the ist action proposals is by no means assured, because the structural problems are still untouched.
As a viable alternative to the sustainable stabilisation of electricity prices a reduction of taxes on electricity, the structural adjustment of the allocation mechanism of Enerneuerbare energy law and the uniform distribution of renewable energy levy on all energy consumers or the return of industrial privileges on the level of 2009 offer himself instead. Ultimately, lacking the current discussion on vision, relativism and the involvement of other causes. Overall, the electricity bill in an average household contributes only 2 to 3 percent of the monthly total cost. Rising energy costs are attributable to the price increase also by no means alone. Instead only a quarter of the energy costs of a private household is power, fossil fuels while the rest mainly on priced extremely risky for the heat consumption and transport is omitted. The renewable energy levy in turn accounts for less than one-fifth of the average price of electricity, whereas approximately 80 percent of the electricity price share composed nuclear power and fossil fuels out of the mix, not up for discussion. This is particularly so questionable, because these energy sources contributed very strong to the doubling of electricity costs in the last decade. Record profits of the power companies are another indication of the fact that the electricity costs rise just not primarily by the expansion of renewable energies is to be responsible for.
