German energy transformation model for Estonia

Last year Germany announced it would phase out its nuclear power facilities. Estonia should follow suit and also revamp its energy production, the daily Eesti Päevaleht recommends: "Estonia is significantly better off than Germany in terms of wind energy, biomass and reservoir power stations, and fewer investments would be necessary to modernise the power grids. ... There is no social consensus on the energy transformation in Germany, because the change will produce both winners and losers. But one thing is clear: Germany cannot maintain its role as one of the leading industrial nations without radical changes in the energy supply. The rise of global demand means higher prices and greater dependence on imported energy. Added to that are the costs of combating the consequences of climate change. That's just a short list of the main reasons why Germany wouldn't remain competitive on its present course."
