Germany is now aiming for fulfilling the electricity needs of the country with the supplies from the renewable sources by the year 2035 as compared to the country’s past target for ending the use of fossil fuels by 2040.

The top economy of Europe has been under the pressure from the several other western countries for becoming less dependent on the gas imported from Russia, but the country is now planning to remove the coal powered power plants by the year 2030 and also to close the country’s nuclear power plants by the end of the year 2022 have left the country with very less options.

Robert Habeck, economy minister of Germany said that, the accelerated expansion of the capacity for the renewable energy has been an important element in making the country less dependent on the supply of fossil fuels from Russia, and according to the reports, the corresponding amendment to the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) of the country is currently ready and the share of the solar and wind energy can possibly reach 80 percent by the year 2030.
