Use of battery storage capacities in energy production:

Modern battery storage tanks slowly but surely enter into the awareness not only of energy engineers but also especially of energy politicians and therefore ultimately of energy lawyers. The coalition agreement between the designated governing parties stipulates on page 57:

“In the medium and long term the demand for new storage capacities will increase. With a large amount of renewable energies arises the need for long term storage capacities, which can equalize seasonal fluctuations.” In the future “a mix of different types of energy storage devices will be necessary”, i.e. the modern battery storage technology has found its way into the minds – at least of the politicians. Now the focus lays on identifying the implementation possibilities regarding this modern technology and implementing it in the energy production and foremost in the energy networks. What we need for the medium and long term – the United States are setting an example – are battery storage power plants, from which the energy supply companies and the network operators may rent, hire or lease capacities....

The new German Capital Investment Code:
A comprehensive regulatory framework for investment funds

On 22 July 2013, the Act Implementing the Alternative Investment Fund Managers (AIFM) Directive entered into force. By virtue of the Act Implementing the AIFM Directive, the German Investment Act (Investmentgesetz - InvG) was repealed and replaced by the German Investment Code (Kapitalanlagegesetzbuch – KAGB). With the KAGB a unitary regulatory framework was enacted that regulates all types of investment funds and their management. In particular, and this can be regarded as main legislative innovation, the regulation encompasses also other investment funds (so-called “AIF”) than securities-based investment funds, that were formerly regulated under the German Investment Act.

The main purpose of the new regulatory framework is to prevent risks and to better protect investors. To that end, the managers of investment funds to which the KAGB applies will require a corresponding permit and will be subject to the supervision of the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht – BaFin). The new law determines certain requirements regarding the corporate governance, the management fee structure, the avoidance of conflicts of interest, a reasonable risk and liquidity management, the valuation of the assets of the investment fund and, last but not least, the obligation to deposit the assets of the investment fund with a third party. Adherence to these rules is sanctioned by fines and criminal charges.
