The green dream without nuclear energy is over! Electricity prices are exploding – an energy transition disaster using electric cars and heat pumps.
Now the first federal state to begin nuclear transformation! The Green Party was barely kicked out of the coalition in Hesse Prime Minister Boris Ryan (52, CDU) Return to nuclear energy. Hesse soon wants to build a nuclear fusion research reactor.
The Christian Democratic Union and the Social Democratic Party of Hesse agree: Yes to nuclear energy! For this reason, the two parties firmly fixed nuclear fusion in the new coalition agreement after the CDU expelled the Greens from the coalition after 10 years.
Ryan told BILD magazine: “It's time for us to return to future projects instead of going out everywhere.” Germany exited nuclear power in 2011 after the Fukushima (Japan) disaster. The Green Party across the country has defended itself against a return to nuclear power and an extension of the service life after the Russian attack on Ukraine and the gradual cessation of Russian gas. Now electricity prices are rising and rising.
Clean energy through nuclear fusion instead of nuclear fission
The new black-red Hessen coalition also wants to campaign for nuclear fusion at the federal level. Using this technique, atomic nuclei fuse to produce energy, which were split in previous nuclear power plants. This can create a clean, virtually waste-free power source.
But even then, research is still necessary; 30 companies around the world are currently conducting research on this topic. In Hesse, Focused Energy is conducting research based in Darmstadt in southern Hesse, supported by nearly 3 million euros.
“I want Germany to move boldly forward again in energy innovations and for the state of Hesse to become a leading site for laser-based nuclear fusion, and thus a clean and affordable energy source for the future,” the Hesse MP continued to BILD. The nuclear power gap is made even dirtier by burning nuclear and coal and buying nuclear power from other countries.
“We need more technological progress and less anti-technology in politics,” Ryan explains – also towards Berlin.
