Para el año 2.050 disociar el crecimiento económico y el consumo de energía. Las renovables serán el 60 % del consumo bruto final de energía y el 80 % de la oferta eléctrica.  El año 2.022 se habrá discontinuado la energía nuclear.
The German Federal Government has set itself ambitious goals and embarked on the journey of a rapid transformation of the energy system (known as the “Energiewende” in Germany). These goals include: Sixty percent share of renewables in gross final energy consumption by 2050; increasing the share of renewables in electricity supply to as high as 80 percent by 2050; significantly cutting primary energy consumption; decoupling economic growth and energy consumption; and phasing out of nuclear energy by the end of 2022.

It will be a challenge to reach these goals. But looming threats of climate change, dwindling and often contested fossil resources, and changing public opinion in the wake of the major nuclear disaster in Japan have put renewables high on the international agenda. As a result, German efforts to restructure its energy system are being watched very closely. Germany has many experiences to share and technologies to offer. At the same time, Germany seeks experience and ideas from other countries on how to establish a secure, affordable and environmentally sound energy system.

The massive expansion of renewable energies and at the same time reconciling competitiveness with sustainable development is a challenge we all face. Around the globe, GIZ advices people and organizations on relevant learning and change processes. And as always, some of our activities are featured in this newsletter.
