Germany needs to boost renewables, not gas imports, to meet emission targets

Germany s public debt

Germany is set to miss its own energy transition targets for the year 2020. This is on the one hand due to surprisingly strong economic demand and population growth, and on the other because of the country’s failure to increase the amount of renewables in its energy mix, relying instead on natural gas.

According to the German government’s latest Climate Protection Report, the country is heading for a cut in greenhouse gas emissions of only 32 per cent, well below its target of 40 per cent.
