The German government made the decision to phase out nuclear power back in 2011. Originally, the scheduled final date of operation was 31 December 2022. However, due to the energy crisis it was decided to postpone that date once, to the middle of April 2023.
RWE reliably supplied countless households and the energy-intensive industry in Germany with electricity from nuclear energy for many years. Now, RWE is responsible for bringing this chapter to a close and safely dismantling its plants at the Biblis, Emsland, Gundremmingen, Lingen and Mülheim-Kärlich sites.
