Germany plans to spend around €200 billion on climate-friendly measures by 2026

German Federal Finance Minister Christian Lindner wants to allocate around €200 billion »for Germany's climate-friendly expansion« in the medium-term financial planning in the federal budget by 2026. Speaking on ARD's news program »Report from Berlin«, the FDP leader said the money should be spent on such things as hydrogen production, developing charging infrastructure for electromobility, modernizing industry and dampening the price of electricity by abolishing the renewable energy surcharge. The point, he said, is to »become more independent in terms of energy supply.« He is now waiting for proposals to speed up planning or reduce bureaucracy
