Germany Coal Use is now a Dream With a time-bound Phaseout
Germany Coal use is now a dream as a source of energy by 2030 has now become a “dream”. According to the Federal German Finance Minister, the vision for this goal would be to “abandon the dream now”. In Germany, before the current coalition government led by Chancellor Olaf Schulz came to power, a coalition between the three governing parties, the Social Democratic Party (SPD), The Free Democratic Party is a progressive party, and the Green Party is an environmentalist party. The agreement on the government’s agenda, which was reached two years ago, clarified future policy lines on several issues.
Among them, a result of the political desire to promote the use of environmentally friendly sources of energy was the determination that the use of coal as a mineral fuel for energy production in Germany would be phased out by 2030.
Distance between dream and its interpretation
But now the Federal Minister of Finance Christian Lindner from the Free Democratic Party has said that the goal of ending the use of coal for energy within the period decided so far is not possible. Lindner said in an interview with the Cologne-based newspaper “Koellner Ashtad Enseiger” that the dream was not feasible. “Until energy is available and at a price we can afford, we must stop dreaming of coal power by 2030,” said the finance minister. Gradually, we will be able to eliminate the use of achieve.
In the past, it was decided at the government level in Germany that the ‘phase-out plan’ of coal would be implemented by 2038. But two years ago, when the SPD, FDP, and Green Party agreed on a power-sharing agreement, it said, “The best solution would be to move the target eight years before 2038 to 2030.” It should achieve.”
Delay in Target Acquisition
According to Free Democrat politician Christian Lindner, it’s not that Germany can’t stop using coal for energy. According to him, it will happen and it has to happen, but it is very difficult to achieve this goal in the next seven years. Christian Lindner also said in his interview that Germany wants to rely as much as possible on natural gas, which can obtain from domestically available sources. It also means greatly increasing domestic production of natural gas, as well as rapidly expanding the country’s renewable energy system.
Germany is the most populous member state of the European Union and one of the largest economies in the world. As the economic ‘powerhouse’ of the European Union, Germany also has high energy demand. Nevertheless, the government wants to use more environmentally friendly energy while gradually reducing the use of mineral sources of energy. This is the reason why the government is trying to continuously increase. The amount of electricity generate annually from wind, water and solar energy in Germany.
