Coalition draft treaty contains "good compromise" and "huge step forward"
The head negotiators of CDU and SPD in the coalition talks have praised the decisions on energy and climate policy as “a good compromise” (Armin Laschet, CDU) and a “huge step forward” (Barbara Hendricks, SPD). Hendricks, who is acting environment minister, said on the weekend that the cap on the expansion of renewable energies was going to be lifted. Laschet said the new government wanted to make Germany a pioneer in e-mobility by making it a location for battery cell production.
