EWI analysis: Germany will probably miss the 65 percent target
10.01.2020 | Renewable energies should cover 65 percent of electricity consumption by 2030. This is the plan of the federal government. However, a team of the Institute has calculated that the share of renewables could be only about 46 percent.

New study: EWI analyses the potential development of gas demand and supply
23.05.2019 | On behalf of INEOS, EWI analysed the potential development of gas demand – in case the current level of ambition concerning the expansion of renewable energies and the decrease of reduction of energy consumption cannot be accelerated. This would result is a rising demand for natural gas and an increasing import share. The study further looks into commodity procurement options for natural gas.
