Zum Problem des Klimawandels ist mit dem Krieg in der Ukraine eine weitere bedrückende Dimension hinzugekommen: die Frage der Versorgungssicherheit mit Energie. Wo ist Deutschland besonders anfällig, welche Alternativen haben wir? Eric Heymann spricht in der neuen Folge von Podzept über alte und neue Energiequellen, aktuelle Herausforderungen der Industrie und darüber, wie man zuhause wirksam Energie sparen kann. [mehr]

Trotz des langjährigen Ausbaus der erneuerbaren Energien ist Deutschland – wie die meisten anderen Industrieländer der Welt – immer noch auf fossile Energieträger angewiesen. Deutschland importiert fast 70% seiner Energieressourcen, wobei Russland derzeit der größte Lieferant von fossilen Energien ist. Deutschland ist bestrebt, seine Abhängigkeit von Energieeinfuhren aus Russland so schnell wie möglich zu verringern und plant einen massiven Ausbau der erneuerbaren Energien, wird aber auch in LNG-Infrastrukturen zur Diversifizierung der Gasversorgung investieren. Das kurzfristige Risiko, von den russischen Gas- und Öllieferungen abgeschnitten zu werden, ist im (industriellen) Wärmemarkt ausgeprägter und weniger schwerwiegend im Stromsektor. Ein schnellerer Ausbau der erneuerbaren Energien ist eine Konsequenz aus der aktuellen Energiekrise, aber keine kurzfristige Lösung angesichts der begrenzten Möglichkeiten auf der Angebotsseite.

James Brand, Head of European Utility Research discusses with Debbie Jones, Global Head of ESG Company Research the ambitious targets set by Germany's coalition government, arguably Europe's most ambitious decarbonisation targets. The targets aims to transform Germany's power market, reaching 80% renewable generation by 2030 while closing its remaining nuclear plants and phasing out coal. It could put Germany at the forefront of the energy transition. [mehr]

Due to significant demand/supply imbalances as well as climate policy measures, energy prices were the main driver of consumer price inflation in Germany in 2021. In 2022 as a whole, prices might increase by more than 20% for gas on average and by more than 15% for electricity. In that case, higher gas and electricity prices would substantially boost Germany’s inflation rate in 2022 (by up to 1 percentage point). In the medium term, a more ambitious climate and energy policy will very likely continue to raise consumer price inflation. At least over the transition period, rising CO2 prices (via the national carbon levy or the EU-wide emissions trading system) will not only lead to a permanently higher price trend for fossil fuels (oil/gas heating, fuels) but also costs for electricity generation. Overall, this weakens the widespread argument to view energy price increases as temporary. [mehr]

Governments from around the world will parade their climate credentials at the COP26 summit ... but when the dust has settled, much of the pressure to implement their plans will be delegated to corporates. Post-COP, firms will be pushed via policy or social pressure to spend more to mitigate climate change. The cost may be high but proactive firms are already being rewarded by customers and investors. Those that delay may face penalties. [mehr]

Due to the continuing shortage of semiconductors, 2021 will be another weak year for Germany as an automotive location. Although the current economic and supply crisis may have reached its low point, a return to earlier highs is unlikely – even in the medium term. By contrast, German auto manufacturers are reporting positive results and gaining share in important markets. The discrepancy between Germany as an automotive location and the German auto industry is becoming apparent. [mehr]

Strom aus erneuerbaren Energien soll künftig möglichst große Teile der Volkswirtschaft mit Energie versorgen. Auf Unternehmen und private Haushalte kommen zunächst hohe Kosten zu, denn es bedarf einer Umrüstung der bestehenden Infrastrukturen. Zugleich haben Unternehmen und Verbraucher in den letzten Jahren die Erfahrung gemacht, dass der Strompreis tendenziell stärker gestiegen ist also etwa die Preise für Benzin, Diesel, Erdgas oder Heizöl. Die Politik sollte daher die staatlichen Komponenten des Strompreises möglichst schnell zurückfahren. Dies wäre sozialpolitisch vorteilhaft. Es würde zudem den Industriestandort Deutschland stärken, der bereits erheblich unter dem strompreisbedingten Wettbewerbsnachteil leidet. [mehr]

Demand for electric vehicles has recently surged. Two key drivers are behind this gain in market share: Tight caps on vehicle CO2 emissions combined with the classification of electric cars as zero-emission vehicles and subsidies to buyers of electric cars. The transition to e-mobility helps to protect the climate. The contribution to climate protection will rise over time due to technological progress and scale effects in production. However, it is small and expensive for now. For every one million electric cars sold in Germany in the next few years, the total fiscal effect amounts to at least EUR 15 bn over the twelve years after the sale. Carbon abatement costs may amount to more than EUR 1,000 per ton. The current regulatory regime is obviously neither efficient from an economic vantage point nor effective in environmental protection terms. [mehr]
