Of particular interest to the members of the Committee was Mr. Krischer’s view on the reform of the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG-Novelle). He expressed deep concerns about a significant reduction in the expansion of renewable energies due the EEG-Novelle. He called upon the government to increase its climate protection efforts.
