For the first time in the present 18th electoral term, the Economics Committee is responsible for all areas of energy policy. Its jurisdiction is identical with that of the Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.

The priorities for its deliberations on energy policy will be the revision of the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG), grid expansion and energy efficiency. All aspects of technology policy, industrial policy, policy for small and medium-sized enterprises, the European internal market, foreign trade and investment, and global competition feature on the Committee’s agenda.
