The decision to shelve all coal fired plants comes after an earlier decision by German government to shut down all its nuclear power plants by 2022 post Fukushima disaster in 2011. At that time, the decision was severely criticized by business leaders who were worried about the increase in the electricity prices, thereby making the industry less competitive.

The country has closed 12 out of 19 nuclear power plants till date. The plan to close coal fired plants as well means the country has to rely on renewable energy which has to provide 65% to 80% of country’s power by 2040. Renewable energy has overtaken coal as the leading source of energy as it accounted for 41% of country’s electricity.
