Never before has climate and energy policy taken up so much space in a federal election as it did this year. Use the energate energy election check to find out which of the parties' energy policy concepts come closest to your own ideas.
Berlin (energate) - Never before has climate and energy policy taken up so much space in a federal election as it has this year. Not only since the flood disaster in western Germany or the new IPPC report, it is clear that the climate crisis is taking a dominant role in the election campaign and that the next federal government will have to set a new course for energy policy. Even before that, the Greens triggered a debate about fuel prices, and there were discussions about abolishing the EEG levy and introducing an energy fee. Above all, there was a dispute about the further design of the national CO2 price, which also affects the transport and buildings sectors and thus directly affects voters. But where exactly do the fronts run, which party has which plans?
To make it easier to decide which party to vote for, the media company energate is offering an energy election check, which voters can use to find out which parties' energy policy concepts come closest to their own ideas. For the online tool, the energate editorial team compared the positions and election programs of the major parties and developed 23 theses. These were presented to the parties for voting. Where there was no response, the editorial team evaluated the content, taking the election programs into account.
Through agreement, disagreement or neutrality of the users, the tool calculates which party corresponds in terms of content. Starting Monday, August 16, interested parties can visit www.energate-wahlcheck.de to help them decide which party to vote for on September 26. Use is anonymous and free of charge.
