Podcast: Brave New World? Total Energy Revolution As Germany To Shut All Nuclear Plants By 2022

In a new podcast published by Oil and Gas iQ, Tim Haïdar (editor in chief of Energy IQ) and I talk about the implications of the German government’s decision to completely phase out the use of nuclear power by 2022.

The interview focuses on:

  • The findings of the post-Fukushima Ethics Commission Report
  • The technicalities of the German Energy Turnaround Decision
  • The Nuclear Phase-Out 2022
  • A permanent shut-down of the oldest nuclear power plants, with possibly leaving one as a back up
  • The extension of the Nuclear Fuel Rod Tax and industry opposition to it
  • Energy compensation – the extension of the existing grid and plans for new fossil fuel-based power plants
  • Market integration of renewables, and additional cuts for solar power tariffs
