The 52 gigawatt cap in the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) has only just been scrapped, but now the German solar industry is already facing new challenges: The recent draft of the EEG 2021 contains various amendments, which could bring about some drastic changes, especially for the building photovoltaics market. The draft law will be debated in parliament at the end of October and is expected to come into force at the beginning of 2021.
In this webinar, the German Solar Industry Association (BSW-Solar) will give a clear overview of the key changes that the amendments to the EEG are expected to bring for the PV market in Germany and will address the industry’s main demands for improving the draft law.

As Policy & Solar Technology Officer at the German Solar Industry Association (BSW-Solar), 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.
The German Solar Industry Association (BSW-Solar), 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".
