German Fossil Fuels

  • German Fossil Fuels

    • Despite an ambitious plan to eliminate fossil fuels by the middle of the century, Germany has so far made little or no progress in reducing the use of fossil fuels, or to reduce its greenhouse gases. Progress in renewable energy electricity generating capacity has only made up for the loss in capacity due to the accelerated closure of the country's 19 nuclear power stations.
