Hamburg Regulatory, Public Law & Competition Partners Dr F. Maximilian Boemke and Dr Christine Bader have been interviewed by Greentech Media on the coal phaseout process which has recently begun in Germany. The plan includes paying coal factories to close with the aim to end the country’s use of coal as a means of generating energy by 2038. 

Among the issues raised by other industry advisers, Max noted the importance of the calculation of flat-rate lignite compensation being reviewed by the EU Comission, while Christine commented on the likelihood of future amendments to the plan.
