An Electricity Market for Germany's Energy Transition - Discussion Paper (Green Paper)
The transition to the new energy era Germanys Energiewende presents an enormous opportunity for modernising Germany´s industrial society. It provides incentive for innovation and new technologies, particularly for linking traditional industry with the IT-based control of a complex power supply system. The German Federal Governments Digital Agenda clearly comes into focus here.
This Green Paper does not present decisions. Rather, the Green Paper is intended to provide the basis for the decisions to be taken in 2015. The priority here is not the speed of decisions, but rather thorough preparation in advance of decision-making. The Green Paper seeks to enable such careful preparatory work. It is based on scientific reports and intensive talks with all stakeholders in the Electricity Market Platform, established by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi).
