Hermann Albers, president of the Wind Energy Association (BWE) called for more wind energy facilities in southern Germany to meet the nations demand for electricity. “Wind power in this country can easily replace nuclear energy” – He announced confidently.
Ultimately, wind energy could easily cover up to 65 percent of the electricity demand in Germany, Albers explained with reference to a study by the Fraunhofer Institute for Energy and Wind Energy Systems Technology (IWES).
But Albers also urged people not to get carried away by focusing only on wind energy, and insisted all forms of renewable energy should receive investment to contribute towards the national energy mix. “We need the whole concert of renewables,” he said.
