AfD: Germany is Europe's "energy parasite"

Berlin - The economic policy spokesman for the AfD parliamentary group, Leif-Erik Holm, has accused the federal government of an energy policy that lacks solidarity. Germany is the "energy parasite in Europe," he said on Thursday in the ZDF "Morgenmagazin" .

The AfD politician referred to the contradictory behavior with energy imports. "We have the renewables, but if we have no wind or sun, then we buy the electricity from Poland, for example, from coal-fired power plants, which cause a lot of environmental pollution." This is also driving up coal prices in Poland.
Holm promotes nuclear power
Holm pleaded for the continued operation of nuclear power plants in Germany. “Germany is pursuing an energy transition built on quicksand. We need nuclear power plants, we need conventional power plants.”

He is therefore grateful for the "Stuttgart Declaration" of 20 scientists who had called for an end to the nuclear phase-out from the federal government. In addition, Holm referred to the assessment of TÜV-SÜD, according to which the nuclear power plants in Germany that went offline last year could be put back into operation without any problems. However, Holm warned that the necessary fuel rods should be ordered quickly.
