How Germany's powerful renewables advocacy coalition is transforming the German (and European) energy market

Germany's nuclear sector has been the first victim, but pressure on the coal sector is growing as well. The German renewables advocacy coalition will likely be able to continue to use their clout to tilt the energy playing field in their favour. Their biggest challenge will be to convince neighbouring countries of the merits of the Energiewende.
