Market- and cost-development of renewable energies - second analysis of the renewable energy act

The German Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG), which came into force on 1st April 2000, is intended to promote the development of renewable energy sources for the generation of electricity as a central element in climate protection and sustainable development. So far, the Act has been extremely successful – IÖW established this in its first report on an analysis of the market and cost development of renewable energy sources.
In its second report – this time on behalf of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety - IÖW investigated the market and cost development of the EEG technologies in the period between 2002 and 2004. Furthermore, time series were created over the past years, as well as prospects for the future. The data of this report were collected on the basis of wide-ranging empirical examinations in all relevant markets for renewable energy sources and include the latest findings from parallel studies.
