Development And Integration Of Renewable Energy: Lessons Learned From Germany
“Over the last decade, well-intentioned policymakers in Germany and other European countries
created renewable energy policies with generous subsidies that have slowly revealed themselves
to be unsustainable, resulting in profound, unintended consequences for all industry stakeholders.
While these policies have created an impressive roll-out of renewable energy resources, they
have also clearly generated disequilibrium in the power markets, resulting in significant
increases in energy prices to most users, as well as value destruction for all stakeholders:
consumers, renewable companies, electric utilities, financial institutions, and investors.” By Hans Poser, Jeffrey Altman, Felix ab Egg, Andreas Granata, and Ross Board, published by FAA Financial Advisory AG (Finadvice), July 2014
