Friday, August 19, 2022 | 11:00am – 1:00pm CEST | Webinar Language: German
In recent weeks, Germany's traffic light coalition has launched the EEG 2023 and other energy policy measures in the so-called "Easter Package". In doing so, it followed recommendations by the industry association BSW to multiply photovoltaic expansion targets to well over 200 gigawatts (GW) by 2030. Germany's gigawatt PV market should thus reach double digits annually by 2024 at the latest.
In the free webinar, experts from the German Solar Industry Association and the law firm von Bredow Valentin Herz, which specializes in energy law, will present the numerous legislative changes made in the latest legislative package, provide an outlook on further government plans and answer questions from the business community. The webinar is primarily aimed at PV project developers, planners and installers as well as interested parties from the entire solar industry who want to participate in the PV growth market in Germany.
