EEG 2021 & More - Grid expansion
In our first two videos we have had a first look at the update of the Renewable Energy Sources Act, we checked the status of the parliamentary procedure and discussed targets of various expansion paths. Today we are talking about the grid expansion, clarifying changes on the Bundesbedarfsplangesetz, examining further procedures and explaining revisions of further statutes for accelerate permitting and the use of established corridors for supplementary use.
EEG 2021 & More - Expansion paths
Our video series on the EEG 2021 continues: In our new video we take a look at the parliamentary procedure and examine the content of the bill - which targets are set and what do these goals concretely mean for the individual forms of renewable energy? Which expansion paths are set for solar, biomass and wind? We also deal with the European side and the criticism that has been levelled at the bill.
