The VDMA Power Systems association is the information and communication platform for manufacturers of wind energy plants and core components. It provides a forum allowing for joint positioning on current topics related to the sector with manufacturers of engine systems, turbines, thermal power plants and hydroelectric power plants.
One year after presenting the Clean Energy Package, the EU Energy Ministers have discussed the outstanding central points and agreed on common positions on the topics of the internal market in electricity, governance regulations and support of renewable energies.
The Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) today published the results of the second round of the EEG call for tenders for onshore wind turbines.
Der Fachverband Power Systems des VDMA bewertet sowohl die Regelungen zur Kompensation steuerbarer dezentraler Anlagen für ihre systemdienliche Rolle als auch die Anpassung der Ausschreibungen für Onshore-Windkraftanlagen grundsätzlich positiv.
A GWS analysis shows that the onshore and offshore wind industries support 143,000 jobs directly and indirectly throughout all German states
The Renewable Energy Act (EEG), which was heavily discussed in the German Bundestag and Bundesrat, creates more competition and closer market proximity in the necessary conversion of the energy system and highlights initial activities for bringing together the electricity and heat sectors. For the plant manufacturers and developers of offshore wind power, the amended EEG will likely have fatal consequences.
