ANU Seminar 23/02: Feed-in tariffs for renewable electricity

Hans Josef Fell MP will deliver a talk on feed-in tariffs for renewable electricity for staff, students and the general public.

Time: 1PM-2PM

Date: Thursday 23 February

Venue: Engineering Lecture Theatre, Bldg 32, Australian National University

Hans-Josef Fell is a Member of the German Federal parliament and Energy Policy Speaker for the German Greens. Hans-Josef Fell wrote the draft Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG), which was adopted in 2000 in the face of strong political opposition. This led directly to the phenomenally successful German feed-in tariff policy.

The EEG is the foundation for the technological developments in photovoltaics, biogas, wind power and geothermal energy in Germany, which are admired throughout the world. The underlying principle of the EEG has now been copied in dozens of countries, as well as most Australian states and territories.
