German Economy Minister – Do not want imported nuclear power to make up for coal phase-out: ZDF via Reuters

BERLIN (Reuters) – Germany’s Economy Minister Peter Altmaier on Monday said that he did not want Germany to compensate for a planned phase out of coal-fired power by 2038 by importing nuclear power from neighbouring countries.

“We want energy security to be provided at all times,” the minister told broadcaster ZDF, but added: “We do not want to import cheap nuclear power from other countries.”

Germany’s coal commission on Saturday said the country should shut down all of its coal-fired power plants by 2038 at the latest, proposing at least 40 billion euros (£34.60 billion pounds or $45.7 billion) in aid to regions affected by the phase-out.
