Aigner versus Gabriel (Germany)


The Bavarian Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy, Ilse Aigner, a Christian democrat (CSU), is sticking to the plans to provide a network of hundreds of biogas plants in the Free State of Bavaria, according to a Ministry spokeswoman. In doing this, the Free State is acting contrary to the intentions of the Federal Minister of Economic Affairs, Sigmar Gabriel, a social democrat (SPD), who wants to drastically restrict funding for biogas plants. Aigner has already managed to get a result. In the closed meeting of the federal government last week in Meseberg, Gabriel included the CSU demand in the record, stating that the funding for biogas plants refitted to create such a network would not be slashed.
