German government approves Renewables plan

GERMANY: Germany's draft National Renewable Energy Action Plan has been rubberstamped by the federal government.

The plan sets out the upcoming developments for wind energy and other renewables up until 2020.

Onshore wind energy is expected to increase from about 27.5GW in 2010 to 35.7GW in 2020, while offshore will expand from 212MW in 2010 to about 10GW in 2020.

In all, German wind energy capacity is expected to amount to 45.8GW in 2020 compared with 27.7GW in 2020.

In 2020, the wind fleet will generate around 104.4TWh, up from an expected 44.8TWwh in 2010.
