Germany Launches Bidding For Carbon Contracts For Industrial Production

Germany’s vice-chancellor launched a program initially worth up to 4 billion euros ($4.4 billion) to help heavy industry shift to more climate-friendly production over a 15-year period, Geir Moulson reported for the Associated Press (AP).

Germany aims to cut its greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2045.

Germany, home to many energy-intensive industries as Europe’s biggest economy, aims to cut its greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2045.

The government, which says industry accounts for about one-fifth of the country’s emissions, says Germany is the first in the European Union to launch the so-called “carbon contracts for difference.”

All the news: Business man in suit and tie smiling and reading a newspaper near the financial district.

Companies in areas such as paper, glass, steel, and chemical production have four months to bid for support under the contracts, which are supposed to compensate for the extra costs of climate-friendly production processes where they otherwise would not be competitive.

Support will be capped at 1 billion euros per bidder to accommodate medium-sized companies.
