German minister hints at changes in solar tariffs

BERLIN, Dec 1 (Reuters) - German Environment Minister Norbert Roettgen said on Wednesday he could not guarantee that the existing rules for feed-in tariffs for solar power would be continued from 2012.

Germany’s renewable energy law (EEG) is due to come under review next year. The centre-right German government added an unscheduled reduction in feed-in tariffs for photovoltaic energy in the middle of 2009 and the tariffs will fall again in 2011.

Roettgen also said that the government is in intensive talks with the solar power sector about the future of the renewable energy law.
