Germany’s new government wants to completely phase out coal by 2030 and switch to renewable energy sources. The refusal will take place in stages so that the enterprises do not feel the change.
The initiative comes from Olaf Schultz, leader of the Social Democratic Party of Germany. According to the plans of the new government, by 2030 Germany should reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 65% compared to 1990 levels.
Climate Action Tracker analyzed and found that Germany needs to cut emissions by at least 70% by the end of the decade in order to reach the 1.5 degrees Celsius target. This condition set Paris Climate Agreement.
