Description:
Germany and Japan are, in many aspects, similar countries and they had built very similar electricity systems by the early 1990s. What happened in the next 20 years so that Germany has become a leader in renewable electricity while phasing out its nuclear power while Japan has become a leader in nuclear power while deploying only small amounts of renewables? The answer to this question might throw the light on how to understand energy transitions and evaluate our chances to avoid dangerous climate change.
