Policy Mix in Germany supports technological innovations, exports and jobs in renewable power generation


German policy makers are relying on a policy mix made up of ambitious targets, technology-push, demand-pull and systemic instruments to increase the share of renewable energy technologies and to foster the German Energiewende. The impact on innovation resulting from this mix was analyzed in the research project "GRETCHEN". The results indicate that rapid technological change has taken place in renewable energies over the last few decades. The consistency and credibility of the policy mix played a key role here. More recently, however, this green change in Germany has shown signs of slowing down. Learn more in the FhISI Press Release and the Final Report.
