Germany sees no obstacles to green energy law after EU court ruling
BERLIN, July 1
BERLIN, July 1 (Reuters) - German Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriel believes a ruling by the European Union's top court on Tuesday has removed any lingering EU obstacles to Berlin's renewable energy law.
"The European Court of Justice has send a clear signal on the continued support of renewable energy in Europe," Gabriel said in a statement after the court ruled that Sweden's scheme for supporting renewable energy was compatible with EU law.
"I am assuming now that there are no more state-aid related obstacles to the German renewable energy law." (Reporting by Markus Wacket; Writing by Noah Barkin)
