New wind power goal

Berlin (dpa) - Germany is aiming to extend its wind power capacity to 20 gigawatts by 2030, following an agreement between the federal government and the country's coastal states.

The new target, reported by the Economy Ministry on Tuesday, is more ambitious than the previously set goal of 15 gigawatts.

Boosting wind energy infrastructure is crucial if the German government is to meet its climate goals in the coming years.
