A grouping of three political parties that could form a new coalition government in Germany has set out its plans to accelerate an expansion in renewable energy in Europe’s largest polluter. The Greens, left-leaning Social Democrats, and pro-business Free Democratic Party (FDP) have agreed to start formal coalition talks on Oct. 15 with a joint letter setting out the parties’ common ground. The Sep. 26 elections left Social Democrats with the bulk of the votes but just shy of a majority, requiring them to form a coalition with other parties. An accelerated coal exit in 2030 coupled with a massive renewable expansion were at the forefront of their joint platform.
