    German Chancellor Scholz advocates for renewable energies

    May 22, 2023 - dpa English


      Berlin (dpa) - German Chancellor Olaf Scholz on Monday emphasized the advantages of electricity from renewable energies over nuclear power.

      "A newly built nuclear power plant has electricity costs of over 20 cents, is done in 10 to 15 years and costs many billions," the chancellor said at the opposition conservative Christian Democrat's Economic Council in Berlin.

      "That's why I think we're better off if we have everything ready by then and produce electricity from renewable sources for 6 to 7 cents. But we have nothing against others taking a different path. They will just have to cope with the prices," he continued.

      In mid-April the last three German running nuclear power plants were shut down, after the initial shut down was prolonged due to the Russian war of aggression in Ukraine causing an energy crisis.

      The German coalition government changed the nuclear law to allow the reactors to continue running for a limited period.

      In order to obtain 80% of Germany's electricity from renewable energies by 2030, a "great pace" is needed, which has not yet been sufficiently developed, Scholz said at the Wirtschaftstag.

      The Economic Council is a CDU-affiliated association with around 12,000 members, but is not a sub-organisation of the CDU.
