Onshore wind – Policy action needed now to achieve German and European climate targets
Following the record expansion year 2017 for onshore wind energy in Germany, new installations are declining in 2018 as expected.
Offshore wind energy - Standstill in energy policy must come to an end
Standstill in energy policy must come to an end ‐ German government´s 65 percent target can only be achieved with more offshore wind energy ‐ Current projects up to 2020 are progressing according to plan
VDMA Power Systems: Uncertainty burdens auction for onshore wind energy
The Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) today published the results of the second call for tender in 2018 for onshore wind energy.
Second round of tendering for offshore wind energy: Development in offshore wind energy remains strong
The Federal Network Agency today published the approved projects in the second round of tendering for offshore wind energy, amounting to more than 1,610 MW.
Power plant engineering economic trend 2018: Global market is becoming more decentralized with a greater focus on renewable energy, but the situation is not getting any easier
On the occasion of the Hannover Messe, VDMA Power Systems presented the “Power Plant Engineering Economic Trend 2018”. Before the presentation, the Chairman of VDMA Power Systems and CEO of Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, Dr. Markus Tacke, explained: “The announcements in the coalition contract regarding climate protection and energy transition must now be acted upon, as European plant engineering can only then assert itself as the forerunner of a leading market for energy systems in global competition.”
First joint call for tender for onshore wind and solar energy: The energy transition requires balanced expansion
The Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) published the results of the first cross-technology call for tender for onshore wind and solar energy today. For the 200 megawatt (MW) call for tender, 32 bids with a scope of 210 MW for solar plants only were accepted, while the bids submitted for onshore wind power plants were not accepted. The average volume-weighted awarded value is 4.67 ct/kWh.
