Transformative Forces in the Energy Market
There is a fundamental change going on in Germany´s power mix. With a share of 26,2 percent to gross electricity production in 2014, renewable energies produced more than lignite-fired power plants. It is not only a change of the power mix, there is also a change among the market players. Compared to a few years ago large power companies controlled with their large central power plants and as owner of the grids the German energy market. Today the energy market is more and more decentralized and confusing.
It is the private citizen installing solar panels on the roof tops, farmers operating biogas plants and local cooperatives managing wind parks that are driving the Energiewende. These new players have taken over the sole power supply of some cities and municipalities.
If you like to hear more on the actual changes taking place on the German Market join the 19th German Norwegian Energy Forum and listen to Stefan Göbel from Statkraft with the topic They call is Disruption but it might be a Revolution. Prof. Marc Oliver Bettzüge from EWI will speak about What is shaping the Energy Markets of Tomorrow?

Felleshus Nordic Embassies, Rauchstraße 1, D-10787 Berlin
