To achieve the goal of climate neutrality by 2045, Germany will have to massively increase the pace of transformation of the entire energy sector in the coming years. The annual expansion of renewable energies will require a tripling or quadrupling of the investments made in recent years. Construction of infrastructure such as new power grids must be sped up, and the ramp-up of the hydrogen market and the expansion of storage technologies must be significantly accelerated. The German KfW bank estimates that around 500 billion euros of additional investment will be required over the next 25 years to achieve these goals.
The energy sector does not just involve a lot of capital, it is also highly political and dependent on a variety of different regulatory interventions. Energy supply has become a decisive factor in many companies’ business success. The diverse, very complex requirements of European, national and local authorities with regard to how our energy supply is organised must be aligned and result in robust, effective long-term investment strategies for companies. The same applies to credible strategies within the framework of climate policy requirements. In order to remain fit for the future, economic, energy and climate policy goals must be harmonised.
