Renewable energy replaced coal as Germany’s main power source for the first time last year, according to Reuters.

Renewable sources of energy accounted for 40 percent of German electricity production in 2018, up from 38.2 percent in 2017 and 19.1 percent in 2010.
====================================================
Their stated objective: to have renewable energy sources supply 65% of their energy needs by 2030, abandon nuclear energy by 2022 and ultimately cease relying on coal. Trump should pay attention to this model & stop sucking up to dying coal & polluting coal-fired power plants.
