Our modelling presents a clear roadmap towards a more sustainable, flexible, and decarbonised power system. With time and resources so tight, Germany should follow the right path to achieve its aim to deliver the greenest, cheapest system, without stranded assets.
To achieve this, we recommend these short-term steps:
Crucially, Germany needs to diversify its energy supply, utilising more LNG as a bridge to replace Russian gas. This avoids relying on coal for longer and harming its ability to scale up renewable energy.
