Quote of the Day From Barbara Hendricks, Federal Environment Minister of Germany

Germany will continue the expansion of renewable energies to lower emissions from fossil-fuel power plants by an additional 22 million tonnes by 2020.

Overall it is a question of gradually tackling a key challenge: power generation in Germany needs to be almost carbon-free by 2050 in order to achieve our national and European climate targets. Replacing fossil power generation with renewable energies makes the biggest contribution to this.
