Verbesserte Ausweisung geförderter Strommengen aus erneuerbaren Energien im Rahmen der Stromkennzeichnung
As part of a project to structure the energy law, Ecologic Institute contributed to a working paper on improved disclosure of subsidized electricity from renewable energy sources in electricity labelling. In this paper, criticisms of the regulations on the disclosure of EEG electricity in electricity labeling are evaluated and proposals for further development are presented. The discussion paper is available for download.
For the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), Ecologic Institute, together with the Stiftung Umweltenergierecht, the Öko-Institut, and the law firm Becker Büttner Held, conducted the project "Analysis and Structuring of the Comprehensive Energy Law for the Electricity Sector" from 2015 to 2020 to develop proposals for an improved structure and consistency of energy law in the electricity sector in order to increase the comprehensibility and transparency of the legal framework.
The main focus of this project was to improve the consistency and comprehensibility of the energy law in general and the law on electricity labeling in particular. As project deliverables, the project team produced a series of papers on both areas.
Further publications on the law of electricity labeling can be found at Oeko-Institut's website.
