Energy Prognosis: Germany to Reach Important Goals in Climate Policy by 2030 - But Has to Face Increasing Risk Regarding Energy Supply

Primary energy consumption in Germany will decrease by 21 percent by 2030 as compared to 2007. The main reason for this is a considerable increase in energy productivity found in the 2009 energy prognosis initiated by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWI). The energy prognosis was conducted by the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW), Mannheim in collaboration with the Institute of Energy Economics and the Rational Use of Energy (IER) of Stuttgart University and the Rheinisch-Westfälisches Institut für Wirtschaftsforschung (RWI), Essen. Demand for electricity will rise until 2030, most notably due to the continuing trend towards single-person households. In order to cover the increasing energy consumption in Germany, more energy will have to be imported. read more

The Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) conducts the Energy Market Barometer every six months and surveys some 200 energy experts from research and practise about their opinion on the development on the energy markets. read more
