Competitiveness of the energy system:
1. Creation of the necessary legal framework conditions to establish a 100% sustainable energy system.
2. Review of the liberalized energy market (e. g. the pricing at the energy exchange) and the energy legislation to adapt them to steadily rising feed-in of renewable energy electricity.
3. General reduction of energy costs by a higher efficiency when generating, supplying and using energy.
4. The conservation of competitiveness of energy-intensive industries is a crucial issue for Germany and its industrial base. The faster the renewable energies become more competitive than fossil fuels, the faster the conservation of competitiveness of these industries can be achieved. Nevertheless, these industries must participate in the rebuilding of the energy system, especially regarding transition costs, such that incen-tives to save energy are preserved.
5. Specific support of research and development on technical, economical and humanistic fields of science, aiming at increasing the competitiveness of the renewable en-ergy system, is necessary.
6. Raising the competitiveness and cost efficiency of renewable energies by the transfer of industrial know-how from established industry sectors (such as the automotive or machine-building sector) to the renewable energy industry sector.
7. Strengthening the dispatchability of renewable energies in the electricity sector.
8. Enabling the import of electricity, that is generated from renewable energy sources, from neighboring or third countries, including countries outside the European Union.
9. Smart and cost efficient integration of fossil and renewable energy sources.
