Decision of the 12th Synod of the EKD on withdrawing from coal for energy production

Synod advocates a rapid withdrawal from electrical power production by coal (lignite and anthracite), which would implement the Paris Climate Agreement and contribute to reaching the German climate targets without further delay. For that to be possible, half of the coal-fired power stations, preferably the oldest and most inefficient, must be shut down in the near future.
