Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Piebalgs leaves Energy, Oettinger moves in.

Better, worse, neutral?

(I suppose Oettinger gets it because of Freiburg?)

Worse. Oettinger is a dinosaur on renewables. He consistently blocked wind via zoning laws, and was an open friend of the energy giants in their coal and nuclear ambitions. (And Freiburg is more a success of the local Greens.)
