Carstensen on the EFL


Uwe Thomas Cartensen, president of the Bundesverband Erneuerbare Energie, Germany's association of renewable energies, stresses that he believes it is too early for a lowering of the rates of pay for renewables under the Electricity Feed Law. "If in future, that is in five to ten years, wind energy has become considerably more economic, then there would be reason enough for the association to decide whether it will continue to fight for the Electricity Feed Law in its present form or whether it is prepared to take the initiative to suggest a compromise for a reasonable reduction of the premium rates of payment. For the moment and in the near future, the Electricity Feed Law payments must be paid at the current rate," he says.
