However, according to outgoing Minister for Climate and Energy Rob Jetten, it is irresponsible to halt all subsidies after 2025 since this would lead to a stagnation in the deployment of onshore wind and solar projects. Some form of subsidy will therefore remain necessary. Given that the EU Electricity Market...
