Saxony: Kretschmer: Germany needs a new energy transition

Grimma/Dresden (dpa/sn) - The Saxon Prime Minister Michael Kretschmer (CDU) advocates a different climate protection policy. "We need a new edition of the energy transition - it doesn't work the way it was planned," he said at the weekend. "I think it would be absolutely wrong to shut down nuclear power plants now and turn on brown coal power plants." This discussion must be held with the federal government in order to set the course "quickly and quickly now," "to give young people an idea of ​​what professions they want to go into, where they can get involved, and investors a direction as to where it is worth investing in".

Kretschmer pleaded for a further, broad discussion on the question of which energy supply Germany wants. In 2011 and 2018, when nuclear energy and lignite-fired power generation were phased out, greater dependence on other countries was wanted because 50 gas-fired power plants were to be built for this purpose. And the new federal government wants to phase out lignite even earlier. "It's not like that anymore," he said. "We need a new start for the energy policy of the coming decades."
