Germany must halve coal consumption to reach climate targets
The German Environment Agency (UBA) has determined that coal's share in the electricity supply must be cut in half if Germany wants to achieve its climate goals for 2030. There are several ways of doing this, according to the agency.
Germany is known as the driving force of green energy in Europe. But despite the country's "Energiewende", which is a plan for massive developments in solar and wind power to replace nuclear and coal power, there is still a need to do much more.
