EU Commission Approves German Cogeneration Law (KWKG)

In June 2021 the EU commission has approved the latest changes of the German law for the sustainment, modernization and extension of cogeneration (KWKG) and therefore substantially improved the planning reliability for new CHP units.

Kerstin Andreae, president of the influential German Association of Energy and Water Industries BDEW, has underlined the role of cogeneration for the energy transition in this context: „Regarding the now even more ambitious aims of the German law on climate protection, new cogeneration plants play an especially important role in making the Energiewende and therefore climate protection succeed. Only when the cogeneration capacities necessary for secure energy supply start operation within the next four to nine years, the German coal power plants can be shut down als planned.“

We are happy about this tailwind and will keep working, together with our partners, with full commitment to strengthen the decentral cogeneration by building and installing our efficient and smart CHP units.
