Germany’s ‘Energiewende’, the anti-nuclear inspired transition to cleaner energy, is remodelling the country’s energy mix in favour of renewable power generation and enhanced-energy efficiency measures. Laudable as it may be given global climate accords, this political movement has become better known for its inherent contradictions – coal is now the biggest fuel source alongside renewables in Germany’s mix, negatively offsetting the latter’s benefits, while cleaner fuels, principally gas, are pushed down the merit order. Gas Matters spoke to Dr Ludwig Moehring, managing director, sales at gas supplier WINGAS, to discuss the paradoxes and unanswered questions surrounding the Energiewende.
Our three titles – Gas Matters Today, Gas Matters and LNG Business Review – tackle the biggest questions on global developments and major industry trends through a mixture of news, profiles and analysis.
