Clean energy threatens to spark off political crisis in Germany

Berlin, May 30 (Prensa Latina) The eagerness to put into practice aspects of clean energy in Germany threatens to stoke up a political crisis derived from strong differences within current "traffic light" coalition, according to local press media.

The Bild newspaper recalled that the Economic Affairs and Climate Protection Minister Robert Habeck proposed on April 2022 a project to regulate the use of renewable energies in the heating of new buildings in this nation.

Habeck called for a requirement from 2024 onwards that 65% of the energy used for heating in new buildings must come from clean sources (solar and wind) as part of the total decarbonization plan for 2045.

The Social Democrats under Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz, the Liberal Democrats and the environmentalists (Greens) created an alliance in power and had in principle reached an agreement on issues of the so-called green economy.

However, Habeck’s proposal met with opposition, even in his Liberal-Democratic Party, mainly because of the insistence on ruling out any liquid fuels, while the Greens point out that there are other possible fuels such as hydrogen and biogas.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) estimated the growth of Germany’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP), which has already officially entered into recession this year, reaching barely 1% from 2024 to 2026.
