The German Renewable Energy Federation (BEE) is the umbrella organization for German renewable energy associations. Our federation was founded in 1991 and represents the overall interests of the renewable energy industry in the political and public sphere. Our 30 member organizations unite the sectors of wind and solar energy, biomass, water power and geothermal energy and represent a total of over 30 000 individual members and companies.
BEE’s long-term goal is the transition to a system based on 100 per cent renewable energy. Our tasks include the improvement of basic legal conditions for renewable energy, for example prioritizing renewable energy over other energy sources. We arrange consultations with MPs, political groups and other organizations. To promote awareness of renewable energy among the public, media and experts, we commission studies and publish response statements to legislative proposals.
