Germany"s decision to close immediately seven nuclear power plants after the accident to Fukushima, and its subsequent decision to phase out all nuclear power by 2022 needs to be managed - and not just by Germany. The action has immediate implications for German and regional grid stability during the upcoming summer where alternative suppliers of kilowatt hours have their own challenges and Germany"s north is even more reliant on wind power. For the medium to longer term, Germany needs to find alternative sources of electricity in greater efficiency, more renewables, more fossil fuel and higher imports. German industry, a locomotive for the robust German economy is anxious about its cost of power. As the EU struggles to implement its third package, decisions by Member States will have a considerable impact on their collective success.
