Germany Is Struggling To Meet The Eu's Goals For Renewable Energy Development

- Oct 19, 2017-

China's energy storage network: it is difficult for Germany to achieve the eu's goal of a proportion of total energy demand for renewable energy.According to eu rules, renewable energy sources should account for 18 per cent of the country's total energy demand by 2020.According to the latest analysis by the German renewable energy association, the country's current renewable energy development conditions and trends will only reach 16% in the next three years.Renewable energy is mainly used in electricity generation, heating and transportation.The main reason is because of the German heat and increasing demand for energy in the field of traffic, especially in the field of traffic power fuel demand rise obviously, and renewable energy development and the corresponding insufficient.Germany now generates 31.7% of the electricity generated by renewable energy, 13% of its heat and 5% of the transportation sector.According to current conditions and trends, renewable energy sources are projected to reach 40 per cent by 2020, with 13 per cent thermal and 6.1 per cent traffic.

Traffic and electric cars have become hot issues in the recent German election campaign.Party parties say goodbye to the use of lignite, develop ecological power, and hold different plans.Among them, the green party is urging the adoption of grid construction in the transportation sector, increasing investment in renewable energy, and vigorously promoting the use of renewable energy.Immediately close down 20 "dirty" coal-fired power plants.

German renewable energy association called for, if the next government is not actively take effective measures, Germany will not achieve the eu climate protection goal in 2020, also hard to fulfil the obligation in the Paris agreement on climate change.The next government is required to revolutionize the energy economy, bring innovative technologies to energy and commercialize them.

In addition to Germany, Ireland, the UK, the Netherlands and Luxembourg also face unmet targets.
