Germans pay high cost for nuclear-free future

Increased use of renewable energy after decision to shelve nuclear plants, pushes up energy bills.

    It has been over a year since German Chancellor Angela Merkel set the goal of a nuclear-free future for Germany by 2022.

    The widespread adoption of renewable energy, however, has left consumers bearing the burden of the changes.

    Some bills in Germany could even go up by 47 per cent.
