Economic policy: DIHK warns: Many companies are threatened with an energy freeze from January

The Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce (DIHK) has called on politicians to provide sufficient energy in view of the plight of many companies. "Here, the phones are running hot from companies that no longer get any supply contracts, i.e. that no longer get energy from January," said DIHK general manager Martin Wansleben on Thursday on Deutschlandfunk.

It is important not only to help companies that are in need - but to ensure in advance that there is enough energy. "The fear is great," said Wansleben.

In view of the current situation, from Wansleben's point of view, nuclear energy should not be dispensed with for the time being. "Now we have to play it safe," he said. There are contentious discussions on the subject in our own ranks. There are, of course, many who have nothing to do with nuclear power. "But the scales have clearly turned now." The government must make sure "really get security back in now".

Federal Minister of Economics Robert Habeck (Greens) wants to keep two of the three remaining nuclear power plants ready for use as an emergency reserve until mid-April. In the course of the nuclear phase-out, all German nuclear power plants should have been finally shut down at the end of this year. FDP and Union are pushing for all three power plants to continue operating.
