Olaf Scholz: “Wischiwaschi at the climate does not help anymore”

Olaf Scholz:

Olaf Scholz has made clear decisions in German climate policy. It is not about waiving, but about the modernization of the industry, explained the SPD chancellor candidate in an interview with the ADAC. In case of an election victory he wants more electrified cars and more public transport.

If the conversion is coming, there will be a huge growth and investment thrust, so Scholz. Germany stands in front of a second industrial revolution. But it needs clear specifications. “Now BMW, Daimler and Volkswagen now invest billions in e-mobility, then the state has the task of ensuring that there is enough charging stations everywhere. This goes far too slowly.”

For all these plans Germany will need much more electricity than today – by 2030 additionally almost 100 terawatt hours. That himself took the economy minister, so Scholz. Every year, this value means an increase in the order of magnitude, such as a city such as Hamburg consumed annually. Therefore, the expansion of wind power and solar systems must be accelerated and the electricity grid be admitted.

But that would hardly be able to create this planning right, so the SPD chancellor candidate continues. Therefore, in the first year of the new government, all the decisive course would have to be asked. Scholz: “The planning procedures that often take five to ten years today, we have to shorten to six months to three years, otherwise we will not get that with the climate neutrality and endanger millions of jobs in the industry – even in the automotive industry.”

In addition to renewable energies, Scholz also wants to put hydrogen. For many industrial processes he will play a big role – possibly also for the aviation and heavy vice. “It’s important: the task that lies ahead of us can not be overestimated. That’s why you need clear decisions and no wiper and whizzing – otherwise you endanger the future of Germany.”

Nobody should be financially overwhelmed, so Scholz. Climate neutrality must also be affordable. “I think it’s right when we stay on the appointed moderate path to the CO₂ prize.”Citizens could set themselves that the use of petroleum, natural gas and coal will gradually become more expensive – and hire them at the next purchase. “Whoever wants to quickly increase the CO₂ price very vigorously, which is only for trouble, because most can not change so quickly and then stay at the higher costs.”

The fewest could afford an electric car from today to tomorrow, so Scholz. Not to mention the pendants who have to cover wide routes. For the change, therefore, the electricity price must decline significantly. “With the abolition of the EEG surcharge, as you propose the SPD, a family saves about 300 euros a year.”Could this be financed by gradually increasing revenue from the CO2 pricing – and avoiding climate-damaging subsidies.

E-Fuels, as required by the automotive association, does not hold Scholz for the appropriate way. The technology will hardly be massive before 2030. At this time, however, there will no longer be as many vehicles that still need such fuels. “Interesting are e-fuels for aviation or for sea shipping, maybe for Formula 1. For everyday everyday use I do not see them rather.”

A clear commitment to the EU goal, according to which from 2035 almost no cars with internal combustion engines may be allowed, avoids Scholz. He is sure that there will be an intensive debate in Europe. He was not a friend of forbidden. Volkswagen, BMW and Daimler already put on e-mobility. As soon as electric vehicles cost the same and as much comfort and range as traditional cars, more and more customers would opt for it.

A speed limit of 130 on highways Scholz keeps useful for useful. While this is not a huge contribution to reducing emissions – but just more effective. In parallel, however, the expansion of highways is important. Even for e-cars you finally need good roads.

  1. For all these plans Germany will need much more electricity than today – by 2030 additionally almost 100 terawatt hours.

    100 TWh Would be 100.000 GWH until 2030 or around 11.000 GWH growth per year or. About 1.000 new wind turbines per year. At 294 districts in Germany so 3 – 4 new wind turbines per circle and year.

    Or as PV systems an increase of 82.5 km² PV area per year or 0.28 km² (280.000 m²) per district and year. As a square about 530 x 530 m per district and year spread on buildings or open spaces.

    Everything feasible when it is politically intended.

  2. “Interesting are e-fuels for aviation or for maritime ride, maybe for Formula 1” Unfug The Formula1 must be switched to e-mobility or be closed. This useless and meaningless CO2 generation for this fun event (traveling for 2 hours in the circle) is no longer in a clean environment

  3. Olaf Scholz: “Wischiwaschi The climate does not help anymore “

    Already clear, Olaf, but (D) »Washiwischi« Does not help it!

  4. If I do not set a clear and more short-term end to the approval of all burners in Germany, then the wisher is. Then you scourge yourself into the pants in front of the petroleoushead and before those who never change. No new registrations More from 2025 and driving ban from 2030, however, would have been a clear and appropriate real signal in the time.

  5. Unfortunately, not selectable this man ..
    Have heard the interview on the radio.

    On the question of whether he answered an unconditional basic income, he answered “No”

    Who does not have the imagination what to change, will not change nothing!!!!

    If it would not even jump from a church tower back then, there would be no aircraft today.

    The vision must be there, and this is not the man in environmental protection or e-mobility either.

    So…. Wischiwaschi type

    And in Math has also paved …

    If you take only very dull times the almost 65 million approved vehicles in D:

    The energy consumption of just under 40 kW / h per 100 km
    (Fuel production, driving, etc.)
    Assuming 15.000 km in the year
    (Billing is between 15.000 km and 20.000 km) over all vehicles

    Then there is 6000 kW / h for all currently approved cars

    If this was only 20 kW / h / h / 100 km today halved the annual energy needs for all cars.

    at 20.000 Km – 8.000 kWh

    And that’s just rugged now and that is really nice, the real value of the current energy consumption for car traffic is far higher.
    Anyone may like to make a detailed list and calculation.

    The result would be frightening!

    I’ll tap to reduce more than 80% when switching to e-cars.

    Why exactly we should need more power?
    Because our industry needs more and more electricity, namely the chemical industry.

    So this industry should be taken into duty and not the taxpayer!!!

    Because he has nothing of the enormous gains from the industry!

    It remains exciting

  6. “We need much more electricity than today, even the Minister of Economic Affairs” – that’s how one would say: For more yeast cakes, we need more yeast, even the bakery. How sad is that we are now quite understood that as a political decision-maker with us, basically only departs (or lobbyist servants) are at the work? We urgently need politicians that understand something about their department! Do not think what catastrophe we go against when BSW is the climate crisis, but also education, traffic, health, digitization … continue to be managed by such staff!!!
