A total of nine branch associations signed the Memorandum following the speeches.

"The LEE stands for an energy supply from 100 percent regenerative sources," said the former Greens member of the Landtag and opening speaker, Raymond Kamm. "In Bavaria, the share of renewable electricity according to LEE data is 44 percent. This is due to the traditionally strong hydropower here, which alone accounts for one third of the renewable electricity."

Guests of honor at the founding act of LEE Bayern are President of the State Parliament Ilse Aigner (CSU) and Minister of Economic Affairs Hubert Aiwanger (FW).

The President of the Bavarian Parliament, Ilse Aigner, welcomed the representatives of the renewable energy industry. "In the end, we are mostly in agreement – just not always on the way there and the implementation," Aigner said, pointing out that the parliament must represent the interests of all citizens.

State Minister Hubert Aiwanger  was "very strongly" in support of the founding of the LEE  and called the meeting "an historic event.”

In his speech he promised a new impetus for the Bavarian energy policy.  

Dr. Petra Hutner, bwe, and Hermann Steinmaßl, VWB, were the final speakers, saying, "Renewable energies in Bavaria are innovative and confident - many actors with a lot of potential. As we phase-out nuclear power in 2023, the gap must be filled with climate-friendly energy.”

The Bavarian State Representation of the German Renewable Energy Association (LEE Bayern) was formally founded in October 2018.
