Germany s power sector has been the centre of energy policy focus in recent years with major investments in wind and solar nuclear phase out and increasing pressure on the most carbon intensive sources. Following the election there is increased uncertainty about the priorities of German energy not only in respect to the role of coal and indigenous lignite still a major part of electricity supply but also around the support of renewables. Efficient gas fired heat and power has also attracted support reinforcing gas demand.
