Quarrel Scholz: The three nuclear power plants will operate until April 2023

The FDP, on the other hand, called for the continuation of the operation of three nuclear power plants until 2024 and, if possible, the reactivation of two more power plants that have already been closed. This requires ordering new fuel elements, but they will be available for a significantly longer period of time. To implement FDP goals, Lindner has so far blocked changes to the law required for the expanded operation of two South German nuclear power plants.

Lindner supports the Scholz decision

But FDP boss Lindner welcomed the decision. “It is in the vital interest of our country and its economy that we maintain all power generation capacity this winter. The chancellor has now made that clear,” he said in Berlin.

Further use of the Amsland nuclear power station “is an important contribution to grid stability, electricity costs and climate protection”. Lindner: “So the proposal has the full support of the Free Democrats. We can create the legal basis together immediately. We will also come up with a workable solution together for the winter of 2023/2024. After today’s decision, people can count on that.”

Federal Minister of Justice Marco Buschmann (FDP) wrote on Twitter: “Reason prevails, which strengthens our country, because it ensures more grid stability and lower electricity prices.”

It would have expired at the end of the year had the law not changed

Without the new rules, all three power plants would be gone by the end of the year – but now Scholz is using the so-called policy skills he gained as chancellor and making decisions without his ministers.

Additionally, Scholz wrote in his letter to ministers that “ambitious legislation to increase energy efficiency” will be presented. In addition, the political agreement between the federal government and North Rhine-Westphalia’s economy ministry and the political agreement between the energy company RWE on the phase-out of coal in the Rhine mining area should be “implemented by law”. Among other things, the agreement provides for the long-term operation of the two lignite-fired power plants until 2024, but also to advance the phase-out of coal in the Rhenish mining area by eight years from 2030.

According to Scholes, all projects should now be presented to the Cabinet “as a matter of urgency” by the responsible ministers. Amendments to the law still have to be passed by the Bundestag and Bundesrat.
