Merkel plans coal power phase-out after 2017 election – Power Engineering International
PEI reports that Germany plans to announce the phase out of its coal-fired power generation sector after the 2017 elections.
It is not clear what time scales are being looked at though. My guess is that Merkel will be looking at a decade or longer.
Meanwhile, in the real world, PEI also report that Russia is to build a 1.4 GW coal plant in Iran.
