Renewable Energy Description:

The Action Plan for Renewable Energy Sources was revised due to the parliamentary statements that were given in connection with the decision-in-principle on the construction of a fifth nuclear power plant unit. In the new Action Plan, the use of renewable energy was suggested to be increased by c. 30% by the year 2010, compared to the year 2001. Among central actions are development and commercialisation of new technology and financial steering instruments, such as energy taxation, investment aid and subsidies for the production chain of forest chip. The action plan proposed by the working group is expected to cut the carbon dioxide emissions by 4.5 - 5.5 million tons from the "Business-as-Usual" scenario in 2010.
