Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Fair enough - but then we'll need to revisit the topic in 2-3 years, when all the new offshore wind farms which have been financed thanks to the KfW programme, announced after (and as part of) the phaseout, get built.

Data from this year are also skewed by the unusually warm weather, so consumption was down anyway, and there was no need for actual replacement of all the nuke capacity. Question, of course, is whether the "unusual" is so unusual...

But again, you will get no disagreement from me that coal should be phased out before nukes - but since it's harder to phase out nukes (full base load), if that can be done we'll know it's easy to do the same to coal...
