Germany is scrambling to deal with rising energy prices & lost natural gas supply. What does its current situation say about its past choices on energy? To dig in, I contacted Professor Claudia Kemfert, one of Germany's top energy analysts.
I was annoyed and angry when Germany decided to phase out nuclear a decade ago. It was such a ridiculous decision that I still get a bit mad about it now and then to this day.
Why is there so much red tape, presently, for Germans to put up solar on their roofs? I think Claudia said that it was about 10 - 15 years ago when Germany led the world in solar; and at that time, it had to be much easier.
