As we stride into 2024, Germany is setting a new precedent in energy management. In a move to maintain #grid stability despite ongoing underinvestment, residential grid operators will now have the authority to restrict power supply to heat pumps and electric vehicle (EV) chargers. This decision mirrors a larger trend across Europe, where grid investments are struggling to keep pace with the surging demand for heat pumps and EVs.
What’s the bigger picture? The European Commission is stepping up with an Action Plan aimed at accelerating electricity grid deployment. This step is crucial to facilitate the continent’s clean energy transition.
Here’s a closer look at Germany’s approach:
By 2030, Germany aims to integrate 500,000 new heat pumps annually and have 15 million EVs on the road.
Local grid operators will be empowered to limit power to these devices to prevent grid overload.
Starting January 1, 2024, with a two-year grace period, Germany plans to introduce time-variable consumption tariffs, incentivizing consumers to use energy during periods of high solar or wind electricity availability.
