German Economy Minister Rösler’s Latest Proposal

According to this article, Rösler now wants a “moratorium” for new renewable energy in Germany until a reform of the Law on Priority for Renewable Energy (EEG) is in place.

That of course does not make any sense. If there is a moratorium on feed-in tariffs, it would need to be enacted by exactly such a legislation. The government can’t just go ahead and ignore existing law.

This is another proposal making it very clear that the German FDP is an enemy of renewable energy. They need to be defeated decisively in the coming elections.
