Germany's nuclear free decision, phasing out nuclear power plants and switching to renewable energy, has not only had an effect on the domestic front. EU countries could see a cut in their energy supply, and now Russia’s bargaining power is strengthened.

The unilateral decision has also undermined the common EU energy policy.
