New #WWEA @LEE_NRW #CommunityPower Report underlines: #communitywind in Germany under Threat

As a consequence, WWEA and LEE NRW are demanding rapid action on the federal level.

In order to continue this role model, the new German government must act quickly: There must be an adequate community energy definition in place, and smaller projects must be exempt from auctions, in accordance with EU de minimis rules. Community wind and small projects should get a remuneration without being forced to participate in auctions, in order to reduce their planning risk. This could be conducive to community power and renewable energy all over Europe and worldwide as many other countries tend to follow the German example in renewable energy policies.”
