Relief in the solar industry is great. The 52-GW cover has finally been brought down. And after the nuclear phase-out, the phase-out of coal-based power generation is now also legally sealed.
However, many more market barriers must now fall in order to fill the electricity generation gap that will open in 2023 with the help of photovoltaics and storage. At the same time, operators of existing solar power systems need a cost-covering and low-barrier connection perspective if they fall out of EEG funding after 20 years.
In this webinar, the German Solar Industry Association (BSW) will present the most important industry expectations in connection with the regular amendment to the EEG expected in autumn. He will present the results of a joint industry survey by BSW and The smarter E Europe and explain the most important political recommendations for upcoming legislative amendments that have been distilled out of an intensive consultation with the industry. At the same time, the advocacy group for the solar and battery storage industry will offer insights into the difficult current energy policy mix and deal with possible business risks associated with the EEG amendment.

The BSW - Bundesverband Solarwirtschaft e.V., together with its more than 500 member companies, is firmly committed to the increased expansion of solar energy and solar storage in Germany and is currently fighting among other things for raising the PV expansion goals as well as abolishing the solar roof cover and the "sun tax".
As Policy & Solar Technology Officer at the Federal Association of the Solar Industry, Christian Menke is responsible for photovoltaic topics since December 2019. Before that, he worked almost three years at the Federal Association of Small and Medium-sized Businesses, and was responsible for energy policy and sustainability. After completing his B.A. in political science and economics at the University of Göttingen, he earned a master's degree in political science from the Free University of Berlin.
