This is the next target in trying to help the environment for the country that aimed to abandon fossil fuels by 2040.
Economic powers from Western Europe have been forcing Germany for a while now to find new sources of energy in order to rely less on Russian resources, but at the same time German officials want to shut down nuclear powerplants by 2022 and those running on coal by 2035, which doesn't give them many options.
Robert Habeck, German Minister of Economy supports investment in renewable sources of energy in order to make his country less dependable on Russian fossil fuel.
According to Reuters, Germany should be able to supply 80% of its electricity necessary through wind or solar power by 2030.
This way, onshore wind energy should provide up to 110 gigawatts (GW), double of what it can deliver now and offshore ones an additional 30 GW.
At the same time solar panels should also be able to provide up to 200 GW at their maximum capacity.
