Effects of the European Green Deal on German climate protection and energy law (Auswirkungen des EU Green Deal auf Klimaschutz- und Energierecht in Deutschland (AgrEEd))
With the legislative package “Clean Energy for All Europeans”, the EU has presented extensive policies. These must be implemented in German climate protection and energy law and consistently applied for the years up to 2030 in order to meet the climate protection targets of the EU and Germany. In addition, the European Commission outlined its plan for the EU’s transformation into a modern, resource-efficient and competitive economy with the European Green Deal. The goal of climate neutrality by 2050 is to be achieved through a variety of new European legal acts in the climate, environment and energy sectors. In this respect, the Stiftung Umweltenergierecht examines the consistency of Germany’s obligations at the national and European level to achieve certain energy and climate policy goals.
