Germany postpones closure of nuclear plants amid energy crisis


Germany will keep the country’s last two nuclear plants on stand-by until mid-April next year due to the worsening energy crisis, the government announced on Monday.

Energy Minister Robert Habeck told a news conference in Berlin that the government is not stepping back from its nuclear exit plans, but will keep the last two of the three remaining nuclear plants in reserve.

“We will do everything that is necessary. Keeping nuclear power plants Isar 2 and Neckarwestheim as operational reserves will be among the measures,” he stressed.
