This law established the target of a 65 percent share of renewable energies in gross electricity consumption in 2030 and to have all energy consumed in Germany generated in a GHG neutral manner in 2050.

For that goal, the law relies on feed-in premium tariffs and renewable tenders to onshore wind and solar PV until at least 2027. The EEG surcharge (so called renewable levy) will be capped for the years of 2023 and 2024, funded by the government.
