The Great Energy Debate

The Great Energy Debate

It’s easy to take energy for granted. We expect to flip a switch and voila. Germany’s transition away from nuclear energy gives us another reason to think a bit harder about energy and where it comes from. Here, we investigate the past, present and future of German’s energy mix.
