Costs only, no relief |
Economic methods cut Habeck nuclear power plant plan in the trash
Strong headwind for Federal Economics Minister Robert Habeck (53, Greens).
Now even the German government’s expert council (the so-called “five economic wise men”) is settling accounts with Habeck. Reason: You do not consider that the “backup operation” of two German nuclear power plants is enough!
in one Guest article in the “Frankfurter Allegemeine Zeitung” (FAZ) economic experts write: “To further reduce gas-fired power generation, curb the sharp rise in electricity prices, and increase energy availability, all options beyond ideological trench warfare must be considered and discussed.” “.
A clear attack on the Greens, who have been blocking the expansion of nuclear reactors for months. According to experts, Germany must use “all generation capacities available in the short term” to “expand electricity supply.” ALSO NUCLEAR ENERGY!
The economists’ claim: “Therefore, coal-fired power plants must be taken out of the reserve and the remaining nuclear power plants must continue to operate at least until the energy crisis has been overcome in the long term.”
To put it plainly: Economists want the remaining three nuclear power plants to continue operating at full capacity. No closure, no “backup operation” as Habeck envisions.
► Scientists continue to write: “However, the recently proposed operation of two nuclear power plants in the reserve until mid-April is not convenient.”
Habeck’s plan doesn’t work. Reason: “In this way, only the costs associated with the provision are incurred, without specifying the benefit of the operation. Furthermore, the current energy crisis, during which power plants may contribute to increased electricity supply and somewhat lower electricity prices, is likely to last until at least the summer of 2024.”
Means: Habeck’s plan only causes costs, it does not bring relief. Therefore, scientists demand the continued operation of German nuclear power at least until next summer.
Experts also warn regarding gas shortages: Even if the target fill level of 95 percent is reached by November 1, 2022, “storage would only be enough for two and a half months without adjustment measures in winter.” “.
“More expansion and conversion needed”
Experts also write: “In the medium term, further expansion and conversion of the energy supply will be necessary to reduce electricity prices and make electricity generation more climate-friendly in view of the demand for electricity, which the federal government estimates it will increase. by around 30 percent by 2030. This requires the expansion of renewable energy, for example.”
