Published on

Germany's decision of giving up nuclear energy, Isn't well thought through as it will need to burn more coal to make up for the shortfall of electricity and rely on “backdoor imports” of nuclear energy from “other” countries- a prime cause of global warming and climate change.

Germany’s Energy Situation without Nuclear

  1. 1. GERMANY’SENERGY SITUATIONWITHOUT NUCLEAR Prepared by: Nuclear Friends
  2. 2. GERMANY- AN OVERVIEW Population of Germany is 83 Million (largest in EU) 7 % of total energy comes from wind It obtains 25% of its electricity from nuclear energy, using 17 reactors. Photovoltaic solar power- 3% Coal provides about half of the countrys electricity. Gas supplied 12%, wind 7% With a new government in 2009, the nuclear phase-out was cancelled, but then reintroduced in 2011.
  3. 3. ELECTRICITY GENERATION BY FUEL
  4. 4. Germany is Europes largest and the worlds 6th greatest single emitter of CO2.
  5. 5. CO2 EMISSIONS AND GERMANY
  6. 6. ENERGY POLICY Policies were adopted to promote renewable sources, notably solar and wind. This is primarily to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. By 2020 it is planned that renewable energy resource should contribute 20% of electricity supplies, compared with 14% at present (half of this being hydro, half wind). Due to the feed-in tariffs of the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG – Erneuerbare Energien Gesetz) passed in 2000.
  7. 7. ENERGY SUBSIDIES IN GERMANY Total energy subsidy/year -17 Billion Euros Subsidy for Wind  On shore-05 Euro Cent/KWhr  Off shore-12 Euro Cent/KWhr Subsidy for Solar-28 Euro Cent/KWhr Subsidy for Biomass-17 Euro Cent/KWhr Levies and taxes for subsidies  Consumers (Tariff 25 EuC/KWhr) -3.5-6 Euro Cent/KWhr  Use of Nuclear Fuel -145 Euro/gm of Uranium  Remaining from Budget
  8. 8. Import-Export to and fromGermany• During Yr 2010 Germany was importing electricity from France and Czeck 42000 GWhr• After shutting down of NPPs after Fukushima event Germany is now importing 85000 GWhr
  9. 9. GERMANY’S DECISION HAS HIDDENKINKS It will need to burn more coal to make up for the shortfall of electricity and rely on “backdoor imports” of nuclear energy from “other” countries- a prime cause of global warming and climate change.
