German wind industry anticipates breakthroughs

Berlin, June 1, 2012 – Last week a breakthrough was made to further accelerate Germany's shift to renewable energy.
The country's four major grid operators provided the German government with a new plan for a major grid expansion. The government is reviewing the plan and has recently intensified high-level meetings among national and state-level players. Germany Trade & Invest experts will attend this year's AWEA Windpower from June 3-6 in Atlanta to share the latest business opportunities in the German industry.
Over 20 percent of electricity in Germany comes from renewable energy. Wind makes up the largest share. With Germany's decision to abandon nuclear energy completely, wind energy - especially from offshore wind farms - is set to play an increasingly important role.
