Climate and energy negotiations in Jamaica coalition will be “very tough” – opinion

Frankfurter Rundschau

Negotiations on climate policy in the framework of a possible coalition between the conservative CDU/CSU, the economic liberal Free Democrats (FDP), and the Green Party will be difficult, writes Joachim Wille in an opinion piece in Frankfurter Rundschau. “Jamaica negotiations about the Energiewende 3.0 will of course be very tough”, as conservatives and Free Democrats continue to “see themselves as the agents of energy companies that have not recovered from having adapted to the energy transition too late and from the fight against a nuclear phase-out which was futile in the end”, writes Wille.
