Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) 2012

The purpose of this Act is to facilitate a sustainable development of energy supply, particularly for the sake of protecting our climate and the environment, to reduce the costs of energy supply to the national economy, also by incorporating external long-term effects, to conserve fossil fuels and to promote the further development of technologies for the generation of electricity from renewable energy sources.

To achieve this purpose the Act aims to increase the share of renewable energy sources in electricity supply to at least:

  • 35 percent by no later than 2020;
  • 50 percent by no later than 2030;
  • 65 percent by no later than 2040; and
  • 80 percent by no later than 2050;

and to integrate these quantities of electricity in the electricity supply system.


Consolidated (non-binding) version of the Act in the version applicable as at 1 April 2012 (last amended by the "Act to amend the legal framework for electricity generated from solar radiation and other amendments to the law on renewable energy sources")

pursuant to the new Renewable Energy Sources Act (Erneuerbare-Energien-Gesetz - EEG 2011) of 4 August 2011
