Germany’s dependence on Russian gas will grow in the nearest future.
Berlin intends to reduce the emissions of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere by 40 percent by 2025, as compared to 1990. After the election in September of this year the new Government of Germany may submit proposals to close coal-fired power plants which account for 40 percent of electricity production in the country, as Bloomberg noted.
The strategic objective of Berlin is shifting to renewable energy sources by 2050. For this purpose Germany will need Russian gas.
