BERLIN, Jan 21 (Reuters) – Germany will force the closure of
power plants fired by hard coal starting in 2027 if utilities do
not take up compensation tenders, a draft law seen by Reuters
showed on Tuesday.
The government proposal said tenders for compensation would
be assessed between 2024 and 2026 and forced closures would
ensue if utilities operating hard coal plants fail to apply.
