In a move aimed at supporting wind energy regions, the Federal Network Agency for Electricity, Gas, Telecommunications, Post and Railway in Germany announced its intention to undertake reforms in electricity prices.
This reform comes in light of the financial burdens borne by these regions due to network connection costs for wind turbines.
Klaus Müller, the head of the agency, further clarified in press statements that there is a pending legislative project that allows for the imposition of fair network charges, emphasizing the importance of supporting wind energy-producing regions.
