The federal government wants to relax a number of regulations in order to increase electricity production from renewable energies. The cabinet passed a corresponding draft on Wednesday in Berlin; the Bundestag and Bundesrat still have to approve it. The measures should help to save even more gas, said Federal Minister of Economics Robert Habeck (Greens). "We enable additional feed-in of wind energy and photovoltaics, remove restrictions and provide additional incentives for electricity production from biogas." The grid expansion should also be accelerated and the transport capacity increased.
