What will the coal phase-out in 2030 do for the climate?

Dusseldorf For months, activists in a small village in North Rhine-Westphalia demonstrated against the mining of lignite under Lützerath. They wanted to prevent the RWE energy company from expanding the Garzweiler opencast mine and digging up the lignite under Lützerath.

But it’s about more than the coal under a village. It is about a deal between RWE and politicians to phase out coal in 2030. The Greens in particular have made a pact against the climate, the activists accuse. The fronts are hardened.

What does the early phase-out of coal in 2030 really do for the climate – or does it only benefit the RWE Group? This is the question addressed in the new episode of Handelsblatt Green & Energy. Among others with the Fridays for Future activist Annika Rittmann and the energy policy spokeswoman for the Greens, Ingrid Nestlé.
