With consumers and governments across Europe facing stiff energy price increases in the near term, I recently spent some time in Berlin seeking to understand the energy and climate policies likely to be pursued by Germany over the coming decade. I found that the government has maintained its resolve to move away from fossil fuels and even nuclear power in the medium term, and to embrace renewables. My conversations revealed a stoic calmness in the face of the crisis brought on by the Russian invasion of Ukraine, as officials work to create and systematically execute their plans — and perhaps even accelerate the move toward greater electrification of the economy.
While Germany’s move from fossil fuels to renewables has been made more challenging by recent events, with natural gas prices up substantially more than most would ever have imagined, I came away from my trip convinced that the country’s commitment to this transition remains strong.
