The power supply in Germany will be secured according to a study even after the planned shutdown of the remaining six nuclear power plants in the coming year. This is evident from an investigation that the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin) introduces this Wednesday. The team, which also includes the energy expert Claudia Kemfert heard it comes to the conclusion that there were even after the age of nuclear phase-out end of 2022. "sufficient capacity" to secure the energy supply in Germany. Thus, the German electricity industry has exported about four percent of its electricity production last year with 20 terawatt hours, write the DIW experts.

 Australia finalizes the purchase of US nuclear submarines © Naval Group - Naval Group 's Naval Group Submarine Australia officially signed an agreement with the United States and Great Britain for the acquisition of nuclear submarines. This agreement follows the cancellation by Australia of a megaContrrate of purchase of 12 French submarines with conventional propulsion. Australia officially engaged today in a very contested program to equip nuclear-powered submarines as part of a new defense alliance with Great Britain and the United States.

Also because of the integration of Germany into the European electricity system were "no adverse effects on the security of supply to fear," it said. The scientists around Kemfert promote the nuclear exit to delete all subsidies for nuclear energy and focus on finding a repository for the resulting high-radioactive waste. The shutdown of the nuclear reactor was could a "necessity" in order to succeed this search.

With the shutdown of the remaining six nuclear reactors increases Germany final decision early next year from nuclear power and thus seals a decision made in 2011. Recently, it had always discussions about a possible resurgence of nuclear energy given. Critics fear supply bottlenecks if Germany also exits coal streams before 2038.

The DIW experts consider this fear for unnecessary. "After the shutdown of older nuclear power plants largely silently carried out since 2011, is also available for the next two years with little impact on the power system can be expected," they write.

In addition, they reaffirm the need to expand renewable energies faster than previously. In the short term, in 2022 and 2023 with increasing CO2 emissions from the electricity sector, which could only be compensated for more solar and wind energy.

Security of supply is also in the medium not at risk if the German power system umsteige "quickly to renewable energy sources combined with memories and flexibility options."
