Nuclear energy provided nearly 25 percent of Germany's power last year.
Now, under intense political and public pressure post-Japan, the government has agreed to zero out nuclear by 2022.
The decision has many energy experts and advocates asking, What will fill the gap? Renewables like solar and wind? Energy efficiency? More coal and other fossil fuels?
Living on Earth's Bruce Gellerman speaks with nuclear analyst Chris Gadomski of Bloomberg New Energy Finance on the matter. Gadomski's prediction? Germany will see a surge in both domestic clean power and dirty energy imports from its neighbors.
