"Energy of the Future" monitoring process
In this process the federal government closely observes the implementation of its Energy Concept and package of measures, plus their targets, with a view to a secure, economic and sustainable energy supply.
The organisation of the monitoring process has been laid down by Cabinet decision as follows:
- The Federal Economics Minister is to draw up an annual Monitoring Report with input from the other departments concerned.
- A Progress Report is to be drawn up every three years, beginning in 2014.
- This process is to be supported by an independent commission of four distinguished energy experts.
- An Administrative Unit has been established at the Bundesnetzagentur for organisational backup.
The annual Monitoring Report is essentially factual. As such it shows the progress made in reaching the targets and the level of implementation. The Progress Report is strategic and more extensive; it will focus on identifying causes and obstacles and propose further action, where necessary.
All Reports and the respective documents can be accessed on the website of Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.
