It contains a complex formula to calculate how much annual onshore wind capacity is required after taking into account all other renewables additions, and keeping in sight the target of 45% of German electricity consumption by 2025. To ensure onshore wind expansion does not fall below a level that risks sustainability of the industry, it will set a minimum annual onshore wind expansion of 2.5GW (total onshore wind capacity minus capacity decommissioned in the year). The annual additional new onshore wind capacity required — as calculated using the formula — will be put up for tender.
