CUXHAVEN, GERMANY - AUGUST 10: German Vice Chancellor and Economy Minister Philipp Roesler (L) and Uwe Balasus-Lange (R) of RWE (Field Development Senior Vice President) looks out at the 'Mittelplate' oil drilling platform while visiting it by ship in the North Sea on August 10, 2012 near Cuxhaven, Germany. Roesler is visiting the platform, which is operated by RWE DEA AG, in order to get a first-hand impression of Germany's oil and gas resources, which he says are critical for maintaining affordable energy for German consumers. Germany is pursuing an aggressive policy toward increasing its production of electricity from renewable resources, especially solar and wind, though traditional energy sources such as gas, oil and coal will remain vital, especially in the medium term.
